A state policeman spotted the little puppy on the side of the road where it had been abandoned. The dog was undernourished and was suffering from the heat. The officer received the warning from a good Samaritan. Because he did not want to abandon her, he remained by her side until she agreed to get assistance, at which point he took her in as his own child and raised her as his own.
On the 15th of June, 2022, an officer with the Tennessee Highway Patrol named Pumpy Tudors received a report about a little white puppy that was found lying off to the side of the road. It was a hot day, and when he got out of bed, he saw that the dog had an expression on its face that suggested it had passed out from the heat. When the officer pulled over, he saw that the dog was not only showing signs of heat exhaustion, but he also noticed that she was very underweight.
The dog’s plight broke his heart, and he felt he had to do something to assist her. So instead of standing, he sat down in a chair and, while putting an umbrella over her head to shield her from the sun, he served her refreshments and snacks from the car he was driving.
He remained with her for an extended period of time with the hope of earning her confidence. After he had evaluated the situation and determined that the moment was appropriate, he tenderly lifted her up and brought her to his vehicle. After that, he handed the dog over to Cleveland Tennessee Animal Control so that they could provide any necessary medical care to her.
“What a #Ruff day it’s been for #MansBestFriend. On this steamy summer day, a #GoodSamaritan called the attention of a Trooper to a dog that was in need of assistance. The dog was suffering from dehydration and had a critical need for shade and water when it was found on the shoulder of Interstate 75. “Thankfully, this adorable puppy is in good hands at the Cleveland, Tennessee Animal Control,” the Tennessee Highway Patrol said in a post on Facebook.
Officer Tudors did not lose track of the canine that he and his family had just begun referring to as Princess. It became out that she required veterinarian care that may save her life, so she went in for treatment every day for a week. In spite of this, Officer Tudors decided to adopt the puppy, and after she has completely healed, he will be able to bring her home with him.
“The dog that Trooper Tudors saved has been adopted by the trooper. His family decided to give her the name Princess. She is continuing her care at the facility until she is able to travel to her #ForeverHome,” the Tennessee Highway Patrol posted on their Facebook page.
Even though Princess’s tale had a happy ending, it serves as a useful reminder that pets need protection from the intense heat. We are overjoyed that she will be able to spend the rest of her life being treated like the princess that she is, and we send her our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
