Arizona Patrol Volunteer Saves Dog Tied to Truck Heading For The Interstate

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, Arizona, enlists the help of many men and women under its Volunteer in Protection (VIP) program, who act like eyes and ears on the ground. They also aid authorities when their undermanned and, as it turns out, occasionally save the life of a dog or two.

One VIP was pulling out of a gas station after a drink break, when he noticed a trailer truck pulling out in front of him, with a dog tied to the bumper. The truck was heading for the Interstate, and the VIP knew that this meant certain death for the pooch.

According to a statement from the YCSO on its Facebook page, where video of the incident was also posted (you can see it at the bottom of the page, as well), the truck driver got “distracted” and forgot to untie his pet before pulling out of the gas station.

The moment the VIP used the sirens to warn him to pull over, he complied. He was relieved and happy that the volunteer was so quick to act, and immediately went to the back of the truck, where he released the distressed pup.












That is all the news for today....


“The Patrol VIP is actually out in the field assisting deputies in various aspects of their patrol duties including transporting prisoners, assisting motorists, traffic control, crime scene security, vacation property checks, etc.,” YCSO says.

“Patrol VIPs act only as eyes and hears when they are in the field, but this exception to use lights and siren to save this dog from injury or death has been deemed warranted by YCSO Command Staff. The driver was simply distracted and headed towards the interstate forgetting to unleash his dog. No charges are being sought,” the statement adds.

As for the owner’s claims that he “forgot” to take his dog inside, any dog owner will tell you that’s near-impossible. Unless you’re too exhausted to function properly, chances of forgetting your best friend tied to your vehicle are slim to none. And if you are that exhausted to do this, then maybe you shouldn’t be driving in the first place. Food for thought.

If you forget the dog you are too tired/distracted to drive.

Well done VIP!
