It was on the drive to a local animal shelter, where the dog's family would most likely be looking for her, that Akers discovered just what a dear pit bull she really was.
"She fell asleep in Officer Akers' lap and napped the entire ride to Contra Costa Animal Services," the police department wrote, adding: "She is well trained, can sit, stay and lay down."
But those aren't her only talents. The lost dog also knows how to say thanks.
"She repaid Officer Akers with a kiss on the cheek for his efforts in finding her family."
