For this Bernese mountain dog, a man was more than just his best friend - he was his reason to continue living.
On Sunday night, a police officer from the Broomfield Police Department in Colorado responded to a report of a lost dog named Maddox. After the car he was in got in an accident, he ran off, according to a Facebook post recounting the story. Reportedly, there were sightings of Maddox, but no one was able to actually locate the dog. The hope was that Maddox would be able to find his way back home safe and sound.
But Maddox was far from safe and sound. On Monday, the police department received another call, this time from a witness who found a dog that looked like Maddox - except the dog was "dead."
