Police officers put their lives on the line every single day and don’t expect much in return. That is why when a story like this one comes across my desk, I feel I have to share it!
Officer Breitfeller, of the Stroud Area Regional Police Department, in Pennsylvania, responded to a call about a possible dwelling fire. He, along with other first responders, arrived at the scene to a home filled with smoke.
Neighbors told the first responders that there was a puppy still inside the residence. Officer Breitfeller didn’t hesitate! He forced his way into the home and there, waiting for a rescue, was a sweet Pit Bull puppy that the officer affectionately nicknamed “Smokey.”
Smokey will go on to grow big and strong, and live a happy life, all because a police officer went above and beyond his job title!
Smokey says “Thank You, Officer Breitfeller!”
