ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - The Orange County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post that Corporal Thorpe was driving to work during rush hour on Monday morning when he spotted a dog wandering on the busy 408 near the Crystal Lake exit.
Police say the dog was in distress and in serious danger of being struck by a car. So, Corporal Thrope immediately pulled over, ran into traffic, and pulled the dog to safety. He brought the dog to the sheriff's office to try and figure out who the owner of the dog was.
Thankfully, the post says that the dog was wearing a bandana that had a number on it. Turns out, a family in Apopka had been searching for the dog, named "Teddy Bear," who had escaped a relative's home in downtown Orlando on Thanksgiving night.
For four days, the dog's family was reportedly looking for their beloved dog with no positive signs. That is until the the Orange County Sheriff's Office, with the help of the VCA, reunited the family with the dog.
