A dog stayed around a police station for about a year in Argentina after its human owner, and you can say friend, was taken in by authorities for assault, and this show of affection has melted hearts around the world.
They say a dog is a man or a woman's best friend but few come like Sheila, a golden retriever from Buenos Aires in Argentina who stayed around a police station for about a year after its owner was taken in for assault.
According to Odditycentral.com, the loyal dog showed up outside the police station in 25 de Mayo, a small town in Argentina’s Buenos Aires province, soon after her owner was arrested in 2018.
Staff at the station said Sheila must have followed the patrol her owner was in, but when she came, she never left.
Unsurprisingly, it did not take long for the officers to notice her presence, and some of them started bringing her food to gain her trust.
Deputy commissioner of police, Juan Jose Martini said: “The truth is that the day we brought the man to the station, after a while Sheila showed up and never left.
We think she must have followed the patrol car. From the first minute, Sheila, who is 4 or 5 years old, stood outside the building, immediately earning the love of everyone. Today she is part of our family and has adjusted so well that when the staff goes out to patrol the streets on foot she follows them.”
The police officers were so impressed with Sheila’s loyalty and love of her owner that they decided to let her spend some time with him and even sleep outside his jail cell from time to time.
“I suppose that when her owner goes free she will go home with him, and when that happens we will miss her,” Deputy Commissioner Martini said.
This is a truly amazing story that highlights the genuine connection between all living things.
