A Georgia State Patrol trooper made a discovery of quite a different kind while on patrol Monday in southwest Atlanta.
While driving in an abandoned subdivision that was a known dumping ground for stolen cars, Trooper Jordan Ennis saw three puppies that had been abandoned in a briar patch, according to a post on the agency’s Facebook page.
Knowing that no one would come for the dogs, Ennis and his police dog Tek brought the puppies into headquarters on Confederate Avenue, the GSP said.
The puppies, a mix of unknown breeds, were adopted out to three members of the headquarters staff.
“A Trooper never knows what he may encounter on a shift,” the post said, “but a day with puppies is a good day.”
