We should give police officers much more credit and respect, because good deeds, like the one in this story, show that they definitely deserve it.
Officer Brandon Melbar responded to a call about animal abuse and was shocked when he arrived at the scene. He found out that a Pit Bull named Harvard was mercilessly beaten with a brick, choked and left on the street.
The standard procedure is getting the pup medical attention and catch the SOB who did it, but when Melbar approached him the dog did something that inspired him to go above and beyond the call of duty. Although Harvard suffered more than any living creature ever should, the Pit Bull jumped into a police car, as if he knew they were there to save him.
Even though he must have been in a great deal of pain, the dog started licking and kissing his rescuer. Melbar couldn’t resist his loving nature and instantly fell in love with him. We’re happy to report that only days later Harvard has been officially adopted by Officer Melbar and we hope he forgets the pain he endured. Truly heartwarming!
