article imageTexas cop saves puppy for the second time

By Justin King     Jul 10, 2014 in Lifestyle
Arlington - Sergeant Gary Carter of the Arlington Police Department saved the same pit bull for the second time today when he adopted the 11-month-old puppy before he could be put down by animal control.
A few weeks ago, the web was awash with the viral story of a Texas cop who received a call about a vicious dog, retrieved the dog, and reunited him with his owner. It has become common practice in some departments outside of Arlington to kill animals that might be a threat. The story thawed the hearts of even the most hardened critics of law enforcement. Sgt. Carter was held as an example of how law enforcement should deal with animals reported as dangerous.

Today, the story took another turn when Sgt. Carter found out the dog was again in animal control because his previous owner didn’t want him anymore. Carter headed over to animal control and adopted the pup. The pit bull, originally named Jefffery, has a new home and a new name. He has been renamed “Chance” in obvious reference to the second chance he is being given at life. International K-9 in Weatherford, Texas has volunteered to give the dog obedience classes at no charge. Carter said that the introduction to his new best friend was fate.
This dog keeps crossing my path so it must be meant to be.
The story of this reunion is going viral on the web as well, racking up thousands of shares in just two hours.
After spending some time with the puppy this morning, Officer Zhivonni McDonnell described Chance fondly to Digital Journal.
He is such a well-behaved, sweet dog.
