One day, the Sheriff’s Department at Chautauqua County, New York received a call telling them a dog had been hit by a car.
This prompted Sergeant Chris Howlett to rush to the scene and find the injured dog lying in a pile of snow.
He graciously took his jacket off and covered the cold, hurt dog in his best attempt to keep her warm and going further into shock.
Howlett then sat there and attempted to reassure the pup to let her know she wasn’t alone while waiting for help to arrive.
Soon after the dog was moved to the local vet for treatment. Thankfully, to the relief of her humans, the pup had only sustained minor injuries.
After a quick treatment, the pup whose name was Rogue was then sent home. An update from the Sheriff’s Department said:
“The family has reached out to provide an update. Her name is Rogue and she is being evaluated by Veterinarians. She is doing well and hopefully, we will be back home by Monday. I am sure the family has greatly appreciated the outpouring of support from everyone.”
“During times that there seems to be negative press towards law enforcement, this shows a bit of compassion on the part of law enforcement and specifically our deputies. Sgt. Chris Howlett seen comforting a dog that had been struck by a vehicle. She was reunited with her owners who are monitoring her condition. She sustained minor injuries but is expected to be okay.”
We thank Sergeant Chris Howlett for his kindness!
