RICHMOND, Va. — A police officer stopped to comfort a scared dog in Richmond, Va., proving that “protect and serve” is more than just a slogan.

Officer Karen Spencer-Boyles said she noticed two dogs in the middle of the road. When she pulled over, she realized one dog had been hit and killed. The other dog refused to leave its friend’s side.

“You could tell he was scared. He just looked helpless,” Spencer-Boyles told WTVR. “It’s kind of like if you had a friend and your friend had been hurt. He just stood by his friend.”

Officer Spencer-Boyles stayed with the dog until he calmed down. She then took him to a local animal shelter. Workers there believe he has an owner because he was neutered and wore a flea collar.
