Adoption surprise: His wife and his fellow deputies arranged for him to take the pup home

HAPPY ENDING: Adoption surprise reunites deputy with dog he saved from alongside busy interstate

BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KSLA) — Remember that Bossier Parish law officer and the dog he saved from alongside Interstate 20?

They were reunited Tuesday afternoon. And a happy reunion it was.

“I was very surprised. They got me. I’m allowed to say they got me,” Deputy Dusty Crenshaw said.

After rescuing the pup the morning of Nov. 25, the deputy vowed that he’d take it home with him if her owner did not step forward.

Crenshaw, who works as a school resource officer at Airline High in Bossier City , took the dog to a nearby animal hospital to get her checked out and to possibly identify her.

Then he took the canine to the animal shelter at 3217 Old Shed Road in Bossier City.

After about a week there, shelter workers said that they couldn’t find the dog’s owner and that they were ready to put her up for adoption.

That’s when Crenshaw’s wife and his fellow deputies stepped in and arranged for the special adoption surprise Tuesday afternoon.

Bossier City Animal Control has dogs for adoption. People adopt 40-50 per month.
