In the morning of 10th February one pup made his way to the Odessa Police Department in Texas “to report himself as missing”. The dog had been separated from his owners and was missing from his home. But however it is like the dog knew exactly what to do, the dog named “Chico” whent to the station were Sergeant Rusty Martin welcomed him. The team who processed the pooch and kept him entertained while they figured out what to do.
Speaking to The Dodo, Martin said: “Everyone loved on him.” The department’s photos made their way on Facebook along with the funny story behind them. “So…. this happy guy randomly strolled into the front desk of the Police Department last night. We’re thinking he wanted to apply for a K-9 position after eliminating a Lassie type situation,” the statement read.
“He was given lots of love and attention until he decided it was time for him leave,” the post continued. “He let himself out and after an exhausting search was not found. We were relieved to learn he safely returned to his owner.
It turned out Chico decided he had spent long enough without his family and so headed home.
After seeing the police department’s post the next day, Chico’s owner contacted them to tell them that he had in fact returned back to where he belongs.
