I read this elsewhere, it's wonderful to see a cop who has a heart, and one who doesn't shoot first and ask questions later, noted thanks :)

Looks like the cop will have to get used to lots of doggie kisses! :o)

Hats off to this officer... I love the part where it reads: "The dog, finally realizing he was safe, sat down and began to lick Officer Waskiewicz." If more officers had this attitude the world would be a better place.

It's not very often a cop goes out on a call and meets his new best friend.

Good police officers size up the situation and take the appropriate action which is just what this guy did - right down to adopting the suspect!

To whom does this belong? Aside from this, thank goodness for an intelligent police officer, who didn't use his gun, and ask questions later.
It also tells you something about peoples' mentality concerning this breed.
