CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (CBS4) — It may have been the ride of a lifetime for two loose dogs who were wandering the streets. It’s not clear whether they felt the call of duty or were attempting to impersonate K-9 officers, but the two German Shepherds jumped right into a Castle Rock police officer’s patrol car — like they’d been training for it all their lives.
“Catching one dog is not always easy. Add one more and it is nearly impossible,” the police department wrote on Facebook. “But not when they are German Shepherds.”READ MORE: Tri-County Health Investigating After Deer Trail School District Parents Claim Mask Mandate Is Being Ignored
