The best thing we can do as humans is to be kind to everyone on this planet – this includes humans and dogs as well. A Florida cop has given a great example of that recently, and his story is going viral.
Officer Fiorelli found the injured dog who was in excruciating pain and immediately tried to comfort the dog.
A passerby was taken by the officer’s kindness and snapped a photo. Carlos Irizzy was walking his dog along Royal Palm Drive in Kissimmee, Florida when he came upon the police officer laying by the side of the injured dog.
He told WFTV,
“This is something you don’t see every day.”
Fiorelli explained more:
It was cold out. She was wet. She didn’t have anyone there so I dedicated to be that person. I know a lot of dogs become defensive when they get hurt. She was not defensive at all
The injured dog was brought to Osceola County Animal Shelter where she is recovering. She will need surgery, which is scheduled for Thursday. The staff believes she will make a full recovery.
However, she does not have a microchip so she will be held for three days for her owners to come forward.
The officer is glad that the dog will recover and urges people to microchip their pets:
Keep an eye on them. They may only be a part of your life, but you’re their whole life,
Being kind costs you nothing, but it can mean the whole world to those who need it.
