While responding to a routine incident in Florida, this police officer never imagined he would leave with a new best buddy. Nevertheless, it was love at first sight between the caring cop and the adorable dog that he encountered. For a few brief seconds, he was able to hold him in his arms and never let him go. Their relationship has blossomed into something very special.
A call came in from Officer Marcus Montgomery of the Fort Walton Beach Police Department, who was called to the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), which is a local animal shelter, to deal with a problem between the center and a previous employee. But he had no idea that by the end of the day, he’d made a new fuzzy companion.
I was closing up my research at the time of our conversation, which lasted around 20 minutes, the officer said to BuzzFeed. “One of the supervisors had gone, and while I was still talking to the director of PAWS, the supervisor walked back in with this small dog in her arms.” He had been sleeping since his eyelids were heavy and he yawned repeatedly, so you could tell he had been sleeping.”
Officer Montgomery couldn’t help but fall in love with the adorable little creature as soon as he laid eyes on him, particularly after learning of his tragic past. After being left overnight on the shelter’s doorsteps in a box, the puppy was discovered the next morning by a shelter staffer. He knew he wouldn’t be able to go without anything, so he adopted Kylo – as he would eventually come to be known – immediately after holding him a few times.
‘When the director brought him in, all I did was stare into his eyes as he yawned at me, and I told the supervisor, ‘Don’t bring him in here, because I’m taking him home right now,'” Montgomery said. ”
Once he had brought Kylo home, not only did Officer Montgomery fall in love with him, but so did everyone else, including his other dog Vader. Because Vader, our other rescue, enjoys meeting and playing with other dogs, he and his girlfriend had been wanting to have another dog for a long time. People would just look beyond Kylo because they did not want to deal with the responsibilities that comes with owning a dog of his age, which was unfortunate for us.”
