A dog was so thankful to the police as they saved his life

When we think about stray dogs, we probably envision a wild animal capable of roughing it alone. The truth of the matter is that they act like that because they have no other choice. It’s common knowledge that domesticated dogs, or domesticated animals in general, live much longer than what stray ones do. This is because they don’t have a safe place to stay that offers them constant shelter or food and water. This doesn’t mean that they can’t show thankfulness or affection when someone does something to help them. Just like in the story about a dog we are about to share with you.

At the beginning of July 2020, a stray dog living in Almeria, Spain, was entrapped in a water reservoir. There was a little luck of getting himself out. Just when he thought he was going to drown, a couple police officers climbed down into the reservoir and saved the dog’s life. The reservoir is located on a farm, and when the landowner noticed a dog stuck at the bottom, he called the police station immediately.

They presume that he was an abandoned dog. He may have went to the bottom of the reservoir to drink some water and fell into it. After struggling to get out for what was probably hours, they dog decided to give up trying. Luckily, the officers arrived in just the nick of time, otherwise the poor creature would have drowned.

The edges of the reservoir were extremely slippery, so the officers understood quickly why the dog had such difficulty getting out. They decided to utilize a wooden palette and metal wire to try to pull the dog out (see the picture above). The first try didn’t go well; the wire connected to the wooden palette snapped in two halfway up. That’s when one of the officers ended up climbing into the reservoir himself and, while holding onto the wire, he hoisted himself and his furry friend to safety.

Once they reached the top, the animal waisted no time in thanking the officer that rescued him. The officer’s colleagues caught the entire episode on video and later published it on their website. They stated above, “to serve and protect, no matter the species”.
