The sweetest call in years...

In 2010, Nick Sheppard of the Plattsburg Police Department in Missouri responded to a distress call regarding a poor canine trapped in a fence. Officer Sheppard carefully approached the frightened animal and after a few minutes, managed to set him free.

The dog then ran off the property and when Officer Sheppard finally found him, he couldn't help but smile:

How sweet! Looks like this little guy didn't want to say goodbye to his hero.
