She wondered why the officer looked so familiar and asked his name. He said he was Officer Todd Kalk and that his brother had brought in a kitten some days ago. Todd Kalk, who has two dachshunds of his own at home, said his brother had told him about ACS and recommended he bring the dog there.
Similar to his brother's story, Officer Todd Kalk had been on routine patrol driving around. "I came to a busy intersection, and I saw him out of the corner of my eye, dodging in and out of heavy traffic," he said of the mini dachshund, named Loki by staffers with ACS.
"I immediately turned on the patrol lights and shot up the road," he said. "I stopped and traffic didn't slow, so I got out and he ran behind me. He then came up to me. I scooped him up and he was kissing all over my face. He had puppy breath."
