VIDEO: Texas Officers Rescue Lost Pit Bull

Two Arlington, Texas, police officers were recently flagged down while responding to another call, by some people claiming a pit bull that was out on their street was vicious.

But, after a closer look, Sergeant Gary Carter noticed the pit was just a lost dog.

“He was friendly, he was more trying to make friends than hurt anybody,” Carter told WHNT TV.

So, he and a fellow officer, lured the dog into their squad car.

Now that he was in custody, they wanted to find the dog’s owner. They took to social media and got more than 67,000 likes on Facebook and additional retweets on Twitter.

“I’m glad that it had this response. Maybe people can realize that not all big dogs are dangerous and second, not all police officers are out there to shoot big dogs, because we’re not,” Carter said.

The pit was micro chipped and was returned to his owner.

Kudos to the officers. Most Pit Bulls are sweet hearts and are examples of their master's personality. If the dog is mean it was trained to be that way. Dogs want to please their masters and they love to be loved. I have met many a pit bull and they are sweet hearts and a devoted friend of the family.
