Compared to humans, dogs have stronger instincts. When dogs sense that trouble is brewing, they will use their intuition to protect themselves. For example, in car crashes, the dog would immediately leave the car and save itself.
This example is particularly real with River, a dog owned by Bridget, a technician at Bay East Animal Hospital. One day, when Bridget and her Australian Shepherd were on their way to Bridget’s workplace, an accident occurred. The dog got ejected from the car due to the collision and went missing afterward.
People in Green Bay, Wisconsin, then rallied themselves to help look for the missing pooch. The staff of the animal hospital even posted on their Facebook page about River. They plead on anyone who may have seen River to inform them about the dog’s whereabouts.
A few hours after the Facebook post made rounds online, the Bay East Animal Hospital said that River was found. The dog was seen by a police officer near a county jail. The officer followed the dog, and when he was sure that the dog was alone, he immediately picked River and fed him.
In an interview, John Jones, the officer who saw River, said that the pooch had no injuries even after the car accident. He added that the pooch seemed friendly because River did not show hostility when Jones approached the dog.
Katy Maloney, one of the heads of the animal hospital, was so grateful to Jones for bringing back the pooch to their custody. Maloney likewise shared her gratitude to all the members of the Green Bay for extending help in looking for the pooch.
In a Facebook post, the shelter called the officer as River’s hero. If it were not for the officer’s thoughtfulness, they do not know if River will still be around, the animal shelter added. For now, the members of the animal shelter can already have a sound sleep because River is safe.
BEST NEWS EVER!! River has been found!! He is here with us now and getting checked over. Thanks to State Patrol…
