In Walnut Creek, California an affectionate pit bull had gotten separated from her family. Clearly, she didn’t want to wait for someone to notice her. Instead, she took matters into her own paws. This sweet-natured pit bull jumped found the perfect person.
Looking for Her Family
Earlier this month, around 5:45 pm, this kind pit bull jumped into a cop car. Walnut Creek Police Officer Akers got the surprise of the day.
Pit bulls often get a bad rap, and sometimes shot on sight. However, Akers knew this little girl needed his help. His cop car was her salvation. Taking to social media, the police officer posted a photo of the dog with the message;
“Tonight at around 5:45 p.m., this little girl knew she was in trouble and took it upon herself to jump into one of our parked patrol cars and let Officer Akers know she was lost.”
Sweet and Innocent Baby
Officer Akers knew exactly what to do in this situation.
He hoped the dogs family would be looking for her at the local animal shelter. On the ride over Akers realized how sweet-natured this pit bull was. She fell asleep in his lap while in the front seat of the cop car. On the way to Contra Costa Animal Services, the police department added: “She is well trained, can sit, stay, and lay down.”
Upon arrival at Animal Services, they found no microchip to identify her. They turned to social media in hopes to find her family.
Fun facts about our new friend: she has painted nails, fell asleep in Officer Aker's lap and napped the entire ride to @CCAnimalSrvs, she is well trained, can sit, stay, and lay down. Would love to be reunited with her family, or be apart of yours if she is unclaimed. (2 of 2) pic.twitter.com/4ZBRM5ui4B
