After completing a regular traffic operation this week, highway police officers in Brazil were astonished to be called upon to assist with a far more important situation.
When they returned to their patrol car, they were greeted by a friendly dog who had jumped inside.
And he was overjoyed to see them.
Given the remoteness of that stretch of road, it’s easy to imagine how the dog wound up there all by himself. He was now requesting assistance from the authorities.
Officials subsequently stated, “They were astonished.” “He wept a lot. On the side of the roadway, [he] looked to have been abandoned.”
The dog’s frantic warning was, thankfully, heard loud and clear.
The highway police officers were moved by the unfortunate dog’s cries and decided to give him a ride back to their station. It was there that the fortunes of the abandoned dog were transformed for the rest of his life.
Another officer quickly chose to adopt the puppy and make him a permanent member of his family.
Officials noted, “[He] chose to adopt him, which made his children happy.” “His name is Rex!” says the narrator.
