We often hear stories about cops who are not willing to uphold the promise that they have made to the public to protect and serve them, so it is nice to hear about a police officer who went above and beyond to assist someone who was desperately in need of their timely assistance.
The officer in this story came across a dog who had somehow managed to fall into the icy waters of Lake Michigan and as you might have imagined, the poor animal was unable to rescue itself. The mere act of remaining afloat had drained them of all their energy and the future was looking very grim.
Fortunately, this helpful officer showed up in the nick of time and was able to save the pup from a watery grave. Once someone spotted the dog in the midst of their struggles and alerted local authorities, they arrived on the scene expeditiously and set about the task of rescuing the nearly frozen creature.
When the dog had finally been pulled out, they bestowed the perfect name upon him: Michigan. The poor pooch had been abandoned completely and if not for these officers, we shudder to think of what would have happened next.
He was suffering from extreme hypothermia once he was rescued and we are sad to report that no one was willing to come claim him. Brenda Thompson decided to step up to the plate and provide Michigan with a forever home that he could finally call his own and we are grateful for her efforts.
No animal deserves to die alone out in the cold and this story needs to be shared, so that awareness can be raised about animals who are in the same predicament as our pal Michigan. Please pass this heartwarming video along to your closest friends and family members as soon as possible.
