A police officer responding to a call from an animal welfare sanctuary in Florida ended up falling in love with his new best friend.
Fort Walton Beach officer Marcus Montgomery was called out to the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) on an unrelated call when one of the staff members heard a noise outside. They went out the back to find a box of ten adorable puppies who had been left behind their building.
"As soon as I saw him, I said 'don’t bring him in here or else I will take him home right now,'" Montgomery told ABC News. "When I held him close, he bumped his nose next to mine and licked it. I knew right then that I needed to get him."
But they brought the little pup in anyway, and Marcus fell in love. He adopted the abandoned canine on the spot and took him home to meet his family's four-year-old pit bull terrier named Vader.
Continuing the 'Star Wars' theme, they named the new addition Kylo.
Isn't that just the cutest story you've ever heard?
