Often the only thing that stands between a stranger and a new best friend is the lack of a proper introduction. In this case, it was a dog named Gorgi who arranged the meeting that changed his life and the lives of all who know him.
It all began one afternoon last year, when Gorgi showed up at a Puerto Rico Police command center in the city of Bayamón. The officers stationed there were surprised by how friendly the stray dog was, despite hints that he had a difficult past.
"He was in poor condition, malnourished and with apparent signs of abuse," Sgt. Tony Montesinos tells The Dodo."He approached frightened and was looking for affection and protection. We gave him food and water that evening and after eating he stayed with us awhile and left."
