The Dog Who Got Away From Home Can’t Believe He Was Just

Last weekend, the dog had managed to sneak away from home in the village of Ziegenbach, heading out for a little solo adventure. Somewhere along the way, he met a group of cyclists who stopped to interact with him.

Though the dog may have thought the cyclists would be just passing characters in the ongoing story of his free-spirited journey, he was wrong.

They contacted the authorities, concerned that the dog had gone missing, and stayed with him until officers arrived to “arrest” him.

The dog was loaded into the police cruiser, where officers snapped a photo of themselves smiling in the company of their adorable detainee.

Evidently, as the dog decided to slip away from home to start his exciting adventure, he’d failed to consider that there could be consequences — and that he might end up in police custody.

When reality set in, it seemed to have hit him like a ton of bricks.

“The dog’s look is priceless,” Middle Franconia Police later wrote.

Fortunately for the puppy, the cops did not want to send him to the huge mansion, but rather to his own residence.

Officers were finally able to return the puppy to his owner after inquiring throughout town if anybody knew who he was.

“The dog’s owner could be found and the four-legged friend could be returned,” the police department wrote.

With any luck, having been let off with just a warning, the dog will think twice about sneaking away from home on his own.
