Unwanted Dog Dumped At Park Gets Adopted By The Cop That Rescued Her

Dumped by her owners that wanted “nothing to do with her,” this sweet dog was rescued by the same sheriff who tried to help her find her way home.

Her sweet rescue story began when a good samaritan spotted an injured pit bull and boxer mix sitting alone in a park in Bloomington, Indiana. Fearing for the dog’s health and safety, the concerned citizen called the local sheriff’s department.

Sheriff Jeff Ripley was dispatched to the call and his heart went out to the lost dog. He called his fiancé, Rosie Ahlberg, who was a volunteer for the City of Bloomington Animal Care and Control.

Knowing that the shelter was already closed for the day, Jeff and Rosie, loaded up the scared dog and took her home for the night. In the morning, they took the dog, Daisy, to the vet.

At the vet, it was discovered that Daisy’s injuries were severe enough that she required surgery and that she was also suffering from emotional trauma. By that time, Jeff and Rosie had tracked down Daisy’s owners who told them that they wanted nothing to do with the dog.

The couple, who already had two rescue cats and a rescue dog, decided to adopt Daisy. Not only would they provide the abandoned dog with the medical care she needed, they would give her a safe and loving home.
