A dog in Texas ran a mile from home in the middle of the night to hang out with local agents, and his owner had no idea he had even left until he had the conversation about the city the next day.
Officers from the Odessa police station were shocked when Chico, the German shepherd mix, entered the site on 11 February, but after playing the catch with the pooch, they were alarmed to find out that he had made a quick exit.
Fortunately, the smart dog came home before his owner, Edward Alvarado, had the chance to realize he was gone, but he was caught on social media.
“So … this lucky guy randomly walked into the police reception last night,” the Odessa police joked alongside images they made during the fleeting visit.

Sergeant Rusty Martin told The dodo: “We were all excited to have him in the building. We had a tennis ball and threw it in the lobby for a while. Everyone loved him. “
The police checked to see if he had an ID tag, but he didn’t because it had fallen off.
They called the animal controller to check for a microchip, but Chico “ran out as quickly as he came in,” said Sergeant Rusty Martin.
The posted Facebook continued: ‘He received a lot of love and attention until he decided it was time to leave. He let himself out and was not found after a tiring search. “
The one-year-old pet had arrived at the station around 3:30 am while his owner Edward Alvarado was sleeping.
Alvarado only knew what had happened when his cousin sent him a text message after seeing photos of Chico on social media.
“He asked me:” Is that Chico? ” I came out and checked. But he was already there. That’s pretty cool, “Alvarado said News West 9. “He knows where to go!”
Odessa Police joked: “We think he wanted to apply for a K-9 position after eliminating a Lassie-like situation.”
Sergeant Martin explained: ‘The owner responded the next day [to say that] it was his dog and he had returned home. He lives about a mile from the station.
‘I was impressed. He may have just been cut away for this work. “
Odessa Police joked on Facebook: “We think he wanted to apply for a K-9 position after eliminating a Lassie-like situation.”
Social media followers were also impressed. The post received 2,000 likes, 1,500 shares and was commented on more than 100 times.
Alvarado said he is planning to take his enthusiastic explorer on trips around the world because it does not seem that Chico is planning to stay put.
“We would have it in my father’s shop as a watchdog,” Alvarado said News West 9. “He doesn’t take things seriously.”
The police later updated their message: “We were relieved to hear that he returned safely to his owner. Chico is always welcome. “
