When a story involves a Pit Bull and police, you could be forgiven for assuming the worst.
But thanks to the training and patience of Arlington Police Officers, what started out as a response to reports of a dangerous dog roaming the streets, turned into a happy reunion of a lost and dehydrated dog with it’s worried owner.
Thanks to some dangerous dog training classes and measured policing, Sgt. Gary Carter and Officer Heather Gibson managed to lure the dog into the back seat of their patrol car using a protein bar. This “dangerous” pet responded by wagging his tail and greeting the officers as if to tell them “thanks for rescuing me.”
Thanks to some great police work and discovery of a registered microchip on the dog, his owner was quickly traced and relieved to collect him. “I had been looking for him for days,” said Antonio Mireles.
Jeffrey the Pit Bull had recently been adopted and disappeared whilst at work with Mireles who is a mechanic.
Officer Gibson and Sgt. Carter are happy to have reunited what turned out to be a friendly and gentle pet with it’s worried owner.
