Earlier this week, the Texarkana Texas Police Department received a report about a vicious dog found in a local neighborhood. But when the authorities arrived, they found a loving and playful pit bull instead. The reason that the dog had been reported was because it was a very large and scary looking dog. And the fact that it was a pit bull, made its reputation even worse.
“Officer Travis said that he left the door of his patrol unit open so he could quickly jump back in if the dog was vicious and came after him,” the department wrote on social media, “He whistled at the dog, who then came trotting over to him with his tail wagging. After Travis pet the dog for a minute, he went right up to the patrol unit, jumped in the front seat, and just made himself at home. Travis said they just hung out together and took some pictures until an Animal Control Officer got there.”
“Pit Bulls have a bit of a bad reputation. Travis said that, while you should always be careful around any dog that you don’t know, you shouldn’t automatically assume that all pit bulls are bad dogs. They might be really loving like this guy was this morning.”
In an update, the police department said the dog has been reunited with his owner. The dog had a chip and it took a while for the police to find the owner because it had not been update in a while. It took some time for the animal control services to find the update information of the owner.
