Ohio Police Department Couldn’t Find A Home For This Stray Dog, So They Adopted Him

One lucky pup.

When the Kirtland Police Department in Kirtland, Ohio, received a call regarding a large stray dog on the loose, they decided to search for the pup’s owner instead of placing him in a shelter. On March 31, the police department posted a photo of the adorable animal to its Facebook page, with the caption: “Missing your dog?”

Weeks went by, but no one came forward. The pup – named John Doe – made himself at home around the police station in the meantime, so the department came up with a brilliant idea to adopt ‘JD’ themselves.

Less than a month later, on April 21, the Kirtland Police Department posted this statement to Facebook: “Some of you may have followed the story of our stray John Doe. We tried to find the owner of this marvelous animal to no avail. The folks here at the Police Department wanted a good home for JD (this is now his name) so with the permission of the Chief and the Mayor JD has been adopted by the Kirtland Police Association but they also share the warmth this stoic animal has brought with City Hall and the Fire Department.

JD has fit into the environment as though he were here always. We are happy to have him in our department and our lives. He loves everyone and we love him.”
