13-year-old dog rescued in extraordinary operation


A 13-year-old dog missing for four days was rescued by a police officer who went way beyond his job description.

According to reports from the Daily Mirror, Lilah, an elderly golden retriever, had been missing for four days before her owner heard her moaning in the distance.

Two Conklin City officers, in New York State, were called to help the dog stuck in a culvert.

After failing to entice the dog with cheese and peanut butter, Officer Jimmy Rasaphone ducked into the tunnel to rescue the beast by pulling on its collar.

While the pooch was in poor condition after his rescue, he is now safe with his master. The New York Police Department highlighted the compassion of its officers on its social networks in a post that has gone viral.
