A group of Detroit police officers are local heroes after a heartfelt rescue earlier this week.
Several puppies and their mouther were left in an abandoned home in Detroit, but thankfully, they weren’t there long. Detroit police officers H. Kourani and G. Rogers saved the puppies after observing a dog continuing to circle around the abandoned house, which seemed fishy.
The two officers went inside the abandoned building and discovered two puppies on a mattress. One of the puppies was in distress, as it was tangled in a coil.
The cops rescued all of the puppies and, according to authorities, the puppies and their mom are currently with Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue. All of them are currently safe.
“Their stomachs and their mammary glands get very swollen and enlarged because they’re filled with their milk for their puppies,” Rogers said in an interview with Fox News Digital. “So it was something I immediately recognized.”
She added, “I generally always keep bags of dog treats in my car and our police car, so I kind of just worked my way up on the porch, getting closer and closer with the treats. And she was obviously very hungry. So she was taking them from me, and she finally was taking them out of my hand after about 30 minutes of me trying to get through to her. And after that, she started to trust us a little bit more.”
The Detroit Police Department tweeted out the news and included some photos of the rescued pups.
“AMAZING RESCUE: A big shoutout to officers H. Kourani and G. Rogers with @DPD11Pct for rescuing a momma dog and her two pups from an abandoned house,” they tweeted. “One of the puppies were found tangled in a coil inside of a mattress. The puppies and mom are now safe! @PitDetroit”
