Lost dog hands himself into Police Station

A lost dogs has stunned Police offers by reporting himself in.

Chico the German Shepherd went into Odessa station, in Texas, the early hours of Friday morning to report himself as lost.

The homesick hound was wearing a collar but the ID tag had fallen off. A vet was called to check if he could be indentified by microchip.

But before the vet arrived, Chico decided he’d been out long enough and headed home. It turns out the owner – had no idea he’d been gone.

Chico’s owner, Edward Alvarado, only learned of his dog’s adventure when his nephew texted him the next day to say he had seen pictures of him on Facebook.

Sergeant Rusty Martin from the Police said: “We were all excited to have him in the building. We had a tennis ball and threw it in the lobby for a bit. Everyone loved him.”

Chico is very cute but very cheeky! maybe his owner should make sure chico can’t run off away from his house and pay attention to see if he’s actually there with him.
