Deputy Officer David Hammel works with the Tuolumne Country Sheriff’s Office in California. Since he was a newbie in the profession four years ago, David was tasked to be in the night shift. One chilly winter evening, David received a phone call regarding a suspicious vehicle parked in a dark alley.
At one in the morning, David arrived in the vicinity and checked on the vehicle. As he was checking the car, the police officer forgot to close his patrol car. When David came back, he got surprised because a dog was already in the passenger seat. The dog seemed lost and was looking for a warmer place, so he rode David’s patrol car.
Later identified as Ruger, the Black Labrador did not want to leave the officer’s side. With this setup, David had another task to do. He had to track down the dog’s family. Fortunately, the dog had a collar with his address on it. David learned that the dog’s name is Ruger through the information written on his collar.
Since he knew where the dog resides, the kind police officer gave the pup a free lift. During the ride, Ruger seemed comfortable and relieved. The dog even fell asleep while David was driving back to the dog’s house.
When the police officer arrived at the dog’s house, David met with the dog’s fur parents. It turned out that the dog’s parents have been searching for Ruger. At the same time, the fur parents likewise got worried because the dog might have gotten stolen. Fortunately, David was there to bring them the good news about Ruger. The reunion between the dog and his parents became possible because of David’s help. It may be an extended night for the police officer, but David felt fulfilled with what he accomplished.
