Last weekend, someone called 911 to report a “vicious dog” roaming around a neighborhood in Texarkana, Texas. When police officers went to check things out, they got the biggest surprise — there was a dog, but he definitely wasn’t vicious.
Officer Travis Frost and an associate went to investigate the dog. Initially, neither of them knew what to expect. But when they drove through the neighborhood, they spotted a golden-furred pit bull-type dog lying on someone’s porch.
“He [Frost] gets out of his car, but you don’t know how these dogs are going to react ... so he left his door open on his patrol unit in case he needed a place to retreat to,” Shawn Vaughn, public information officer for the Texarkana Texas Police Department, told The Dodo.
But Frost quickly realized the dog wasn’t any kind of threat.
