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 policemen who welcomed him, observing that the dog seemed unconcerned about his “lost dog” status. He mostly appeared to be looking for a good time, and he got one.
Martin told The Dodo, “We were all delighted to have him in the building.” “We had a tennis ball with us and tossed it about in the lobby for a while. He was adored by everybody.”
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.
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 invented himself.
