In the early hours of a Saturday morning, Florida police officer Kareem Garibaldi was on patrol in the city and nearly struck a little dog with his cruiser.
The tiny boxer/pitbull hybrid, who appeared to be approximately 8 weeks old, was out on the street by herself, without any identification, and it was just a matter of time before someone struck her by mistake.
Garibaldi sprang out of his car, grabbed the cute dog, and carried her back to the station as soon as he realized he had to save her.
Then, when his shift was over, he took the dog home with him.
Garibaldi hoped that the puppy had an owner somewhere, but it would be difficult to find them as the dog lacked a collar, chip, or any other kind of identification.
But Garibaldi made every effort. In search of anyone who was missing the dog, he drove around the neighborhood where she had been found. In an effort to identify the small dog, Garibaldi also shared photos of the animal on social media.
Nevertheless, despite his best efforts, Garibaldi was unsuccessful.
The little dog looked to be a stray and an outcast in this world.
However, she was no longer by herself. Now that the puppy had Garibaldi on his side, the kind policeman was prepared to go above and above for the tiny dog.
Garibaldi transported the puppy to the SPCA Florida Medical Center to be checked as soon as he finished his third consecutive 12-hour shift.
After a long and demanding shift, Garibaldi was fatigued, but the puppy’s needs came first.
Connie Johnson, the safety net manager at the shelter, discovered Garibaldi and the puppy resting next to each other when she got to work.
From 8:45 am until 12:00 pm, Garibaldi waited patiently in the waiting area while the veterinarian examined the puppy. The worn-out cop used the opportunity to rest his eyes for a moment as he waited.
Examining the puppy revealed that she was going to be OK; although having some mites, she was generally healthy.
Garibaldi woke up when she got back from her exam and checked on her to make sure she was well. The tired duo eventually slept off.
Johnson took a photo of the two and uploaded it online, praising Garibaldi’s generosity and selflessness.
Garibaldi returned to the police station with the dog after the examination.
A dispatcher saw the small dog there, fell in love with her right away, and took her home the same day.
The puppy was given the name Hope, and because of Garibaldi, she now has a loving family and a cozy home.
