“Deputy Soto thought that the dog, named Hank according to his collar ID, might be hungry,” Gary Levine, a public information officer with the Lee County Sheriff's Office, told The Dodo. “Deputy Soto gave Hank the last of his dinner. He opened the rear door of his patrol vehicle and Hank jumped in.”
Hank was so excited to see the officers, and gratefully accepted some food and a ride. Luckily, there was an address on Hank’s collar, and so the officers were able to drive him home and reunite him with his family before he had barely even been gone at all.
