A deputy in Snohomish County, Washington, is the proud new owner of a German shepherd puppy, who had to be rehomed because of her former owner’s landlord. On Wednesday, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office explained what transpired:

Deputy Barnett was working patrol in north county when he responded to a 911 call to report a puppy left inside a vehicle. When he arrived, he located the owner at a nearby residence who was distraught and did not know what to do.

The pup’s owner explained that he had recently adopted the puppy, but days later, his landlord said that the puppy couldn’t come inside. The man said that he was “trying to work things out.” Deputy Barnett assured that man that things would be okay and left his business card with the man in case he needed further assistance.

The Sheriff’s Office writes:

The following day, Deputy Barnett’s cell phone rang and the owner called to say he made the difficult decision that he was not able to properly care for the pup and needed help finding a new home for her.

No help was needed because Deputy Barnett was willing and able to take the puppy in himself. The Sheriff’s Office stated:

Without hesitation, Deputy Barnett responded back to the residence… meet the newest addition to the Barnett family, an 8-week-old German Shepherd, who now has a new home on 5 acres with her sister Rosy.
