A New Jersey police officer made a 650-mile journey from Monmouth County to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to return a dog to its owner.
Wall Township Ptl. Frank Kuhl, of Howell, was called to the aid of a 34-year-old man in need of medical attention as he was traveling in his vehicle on July 15. The Myrtle Beach man was traveling with Bella, his basset hound, at the time of the incident.
Bella was taken into the custody of the Monmouth County Humane Society as her owner received medical care. The organization said they would keep Bella for a week before putting her up for adoption.
A week later, the victim was still unable to retrieve his dog, and Bella’s co-owner was unable to get up to New Jersey from Myrtle Beach to take her home.
That’s when Ptl. Kuhl stepped up to the plate, CBS New York reports.
