In Florida, a scene as sad as it was touching unfolded in a dead end street: a dog found tied to a pole extended its paw to a police officer who came to rescue him.
Angela Laurella is a police officer from Florida, United States. Last week, she saved a dog found tied to a pole. The incident took place in a dead end street located in Pompano Beach.
The animal, which was probably abandoned by its owners, was in a pitiful state. Indeed, the poor canine was suffering from dehydration and malnutrition. The officer’s intervention saved his life.

That day, the young woman slowly approached the ball of fur before extending her hand to him. For his part, the dog did not hesitate to give her his paw in return. Once trust was established, the officer reassured the animal by petting him.
The dog, named Liam, was moved to a shelter called 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida. On the spot, the canine underwent a series of examinations because his state of health was worrying.
Today, Liam is getting back on his feet with his peers. Unsurprisingly, the staff takes great care of him. It must be said that the doggie is a real ball of tenderness and kindness.
“He loves everyone, and there’s not a shred of badness in him. To me, that means everything, because after all he’s been through, he’s still so grateful and forgiving ,” said Amy Roman, president and founder of the animal welfare association.
Despite everything he’s been through, Liam still offers his friendship to visitors. As you will have understood, he wishes to receive love from people and to find a loving family, in which he can flourish.
“ I think humanity can learn a thing or two from dogs like Liam , a It gives you faith,” Amy told The Dodo news site.
