What began as a routine call to clear some trash from a roadside turned out to be more memorable than anybody could have expected, due to two mischievous puppies who did the most adorable thing to seek assistance.
They weren’t going to accept no for an answer.
Officers from Germany’s Saxony-Anhalt Police were called to clear the danger after reports of shattered tire components in the middle of the Autobahn roadway. However, shortly after arriving on the scene and blocking the road, the officers’ attention was drawn away from the task at hand.
A pair of puppies emerged from an embankment on the roadway. The canines, who were alone and appeared to be lost, presumably took advantage of the absence of traffic to make their way to help.
The officers’ patrol car, with its doors open, proved to be the ideal location to find it.
The cops were taken aback when they saw their car had been hijacked, but thankfully they got the message loud and clear.
The dogs were desperate to get out of there and find their way home.
The dogs were characterized as “determined” in a police report about the event.
Sure enough, after the officers regained their calm, they were more than willing to cooperate.
They drove the missing puppies to a nearby animal shelter, where they stayed for a short time.
Within a few hours, the dogs’ owner had phoned authorities and arrived to take up the pets, no doubt relieved but probably a bit embarrassed by their run-in with the law.
