When you see an injured animal, what’s your first instinct? I would hope it would be to help that animal. And one dog in Florida got some special treatment from a police officer when she was injured.
Down in Kissimmee, Florida, a dog was spotted lying on the side of the road. It had been hit by a car. Osceola County deputy Josh Fiorelli was passing by when he saw the injured animal. The female dog was alive but was hurt enough that she couldn’t move. Josh was heartbroken that such a thing happened. So he called for help then sat down beside the white dog and started petting her.
Some dogs might get defensive when they’re hurt, but not this one. She seemed to welcome the officer being there for it. Josh then put his jacket over the dog to keep it warm, as the day was chilly and she was wet.
Says Josh: “She didn’t have anyone there, so I decided to be that person.”
The dog was soon treated for a dislocated leg. Carlos Irizzary was walking his own dog when he came across Josh helping the injured dog, so he snapped a photo of it, and posted it online. It went viral, and it was shared by several news outlets throughout the country.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office also posted the photo on its website, saying: “…Thank you Deputy Fiorelli for serving with care and compassion.”
