What would you do if you were driving down the road and saw an injured animal? Some people might stop, others might call 911 or animal control. Thankfully, it’s not something that we see often but it’s still something that occasionally occurs.
Patrick Hennessy is a Florida citizen who was heading to work one morning at 4:30 AM when he saw two pitbulls along the road. One of them appeared to be injured so he called 911 and two sheriffs were on the way.
Officers Boggs and Reed found two pitbulls when they arrived on the scene. One of the dogs was injured and the other one would not leave her side. The officers eventually were able to make friends with the dogs and get them out of the road.
It seemed as if the injured dog was hit by a car and she had a large cut in her leg. Both the officers and Patrick work to bandage the leg and then they fed the dog some snacks. Soon, a friendship was blooming.
The officers continued to stay with the dogs until animal services came onto the scene. They told them that the dogs would be safe and well taken care of.
The injured dog was able to fully recuperate after some rest and needed care. Boggs and Reed came to visit her and when they arrived, the dogs remembered them. They just couldn’t stop loving on those kind officers.
People couldn’t say enough about the kindness and compassion that those officers showed. It’s easy to see that these officers are heroes and thankfully, it was a happy ending.
You can watch the reunion in this touching video:
“PUPDATE”!!!!It was one week ago, Deputy Reed and Deputy Boggs helped calm and comfort two very sweet, scared pit bulls (one injured) that were found wandering in a dangerous high-traffic intersection. The dogs were taken to Orange County Animal Services where they were promptly named Liberty and Justice and are now up for adoption. Here’s a short video from Animal Services of our Sector 4 deputies checking up on the pups, who are full of personality. We want Justice (A362290) and Liberty (A362289) to find a forever home. Hopefully together. Please adopt them.The deputies are spoken for :)Please go to this link: www.ocnetpets.com for more information on Liberty and Justice.
