This Trooper Found These Abandoned Puppies In A Briar Patch And Now They're Adopted

The world is not a completely hopeless place.

Posted on

Georgia State Trooper Jordan Ennis was driving down an abandoned road in an overgrown Atlanta subdivision when he saw the first one.

He scooped them up, brought them back to his patrol car, and introduced them to his K-9 partner, Tek, who was more than happy to share his kennel. Ennis then drove the motley crew back to headquarters.


"I was rolling deep with my canine squad," he laughed.

While they are all still nameless, Ennis says the pup brigade is in good health and have all been to the vet. Finding discarded puppies was a first for the trooper, who told BuzzFeed News he often calls animal control services when he sees stray dogs while on patrol.

“A trooper never knows what he may encounter on a shift,” the department wrote on Facebook, “but a day with puppies is a good day."
