An unexpected visitor walked through the doors of the Odessa Police Department in Texas last week in the early hours of the morning and climbed up onto the counter.
It was a nice dog, eager to alert authorities to an ongoing problem – that a specific person had gone missing from home.
He’s the one.
Sergeant Rusty Martin was one of the police who welcomed him, observing that the dog looked unconcerned about his position as a “lost dog.” He mostly appeared to be looking for a good time, and he got it.
The Dodo quoted Martin as saying, “We were all delighted to have him in the building.” “We had a tennis ball, so we tossed it about in the lobby for a while. He was adored by everyone.”
Despite enjoying the dog’s unexpected company, the officers on duty didn’t forget about the matter he’d brought up in the first place. However, getting to the bottom of it quickly encountered a hitch.
Although the dog was wearing a collar, the ID tag had reportedly fallen off, prompting animal control to come check for a microchip.
However, things took a turn before they arrived.
After apparently deciding that he’d been “lost” for long enough, the dog returned to his family on his own.
Martin, who had written about the event on Facebook, stated, “He rushed out just as soon as he walked in.” “The next day, the owner contacted to say that it was his dog and that he had returned home. He lives a mile away from the train station.”
Chico, the dog, had solved his first case, but it was one he had devised himself.
“I was blown away,” Martin remarked. “He could be the right fit for this job.”
