A Police Officer Responds To A Call At An Animal Shelter…And Leaves With A Puppy!

A police officer in Florida was out on a routine call when a heartbreaking story cause him to go home with an adorable puppy.

The Panhandle Animal Welfare Society (Yeah, that’s right – PAWS) called the Fort Walton Beach Police Department after an issue with a former employee, and Officer Marcus Montgomery responded. But the issue with the former employee isn’t the story – this cute puppy is.

He saw the puppy from another room and asked the supervisor at PAWS what the story was, since the little dog was all alone. Someone had dropped the pup off at the back door of the building at sometime in the night, and with the weather being below freezing, they were surprised that the animal survived.

Just thinking about him out there all alone, probably so confused, broke my heart.”

He didn’t think that he would be able to care for another dog. He already has one, but he spoke to his girlfriend and they agreed to foster the pup until a forever home could be found for him!

Montgomery took the little puppy home and named him Kylo. Montgomery has an older dog named Vader…obviously, this officer is a huge¬†Star Wars fan! The new puppy will need a lot of love and attention since he is too young to be adopted, but soon enough, he’ll have a forever home!

Officer Montgomery wants to encourage others to take trips to their local animal shelters when they are looking to expand their family. There are lots of abandoned pets that are in need of a loving home!
