Cops are seen as real-life heroes because they swore to save and protect us, but frequently their kindness goes even beyond that. These two LAPD officers are an example of devotion and sense of duty, after their small gesture saved an innocent life
Officer Mercado and Officer Tavera were patrolling the streets of the city , when they spotted a pint-sized puppy was chasing them. As soon as they spotted the tiny pup, the policemen stopped to investigate what’s going on. They initially assumed the little one might had lost, but unfortunately it wasn’t like that.
It turned out someone just abandoned the helpless pup and since he was wondering the streets of Los Angeles asking for help. Fortunately, he met the right people. With the tiny fur ball hanging on his feet, officer Tavera’s heart instantly melted.
He knew he had to rescue this pure little soul. So the two cops decided to take the pup to the police station until they would eventually found a shelter for him. However, the things have changed completely during their short trip.
All the way down to the police station, the sweet rescue dog couldn’t stopped hugging and cuddling with the cops that saved him. Officer Mercado on the other hand was so impressed by the way the little one was showing gratitude.
However, once they got to the station, the officers made a research, just to make sure they won’t adopt someone’s pup. Soon as they found out he’s actually a stray pup, the officers thought for a name and they called him Hobart. Even so tiny in size, Hobart showed his heart is so big and brave. Brave enough to survive alone on the streets. This brought him the K9 title which he proudly accepted it.

Now they happily living together and the tiny pup finally got the chance to live his life peacefully.
