Poor little puppy! This dog was almost dead, but thanks to quick thinking officers, survived the terrible ordeal. His guardian angels were working overtime that day! Read on for details.
From the Daily Mail:
A dog whose life was hanging by a thread – or rather a leash – was saved by two police officers who saw the pooch dangling from a truck window.
The officers responded to a Walmart in Arkansas City, Kansas on July 11 on a shoplifting call and had just secured the suspect in the backseat of their patrol car when an employee told them there was a dog hanging by his leash outside of the window of a red vehicle in the parking lot.
The officers, Sergeant Jason Legleiter and Police Officer Wade Hammond, immediately approached and, seeing the little black and tan dog unresponsive, thought he might be dead.
But Sergeant Legleiter quickly cut the dog down with his department-issued knife, said the department on its Facebook wall.
As the near-dead pup lay on the pavement, Officer Hammond tried to revive him by removing his tight collar and ‘applying pressure intermittently to the dog’s side.’
Within several minutes, the dog began showing more and more signs of life until eventually he was standing and panting as the officers gave him water.
By the end of the frightening incident, the dog seemed to have totally recovered.
Dogs are man’s best friends and these two men are this little guy’s best friends. Kudos to these officers for helping a little dog on the brink of death. May he live a long happy life!
