“He approached frightened and was looking for affection and protection,” Sgt. Tony Montesinos told The Dodo. “We gave him food and water that evening and after eating he stayed with us awhile and left.” The next day the dog came back. The officers were surprised by how friendly he was despite his apparently difficult past, and seeing how he enjoyed their company, they decided to adopt him.

Gorgi not only found a loving home, he also got a job – he became the station’s surveillance dog. He even has his own badge and a little vest! “He reduces tensions,” says Montesinos. “Everyone loves him. He will have everything he needs for as long as he lives.”

Meet Gorgi, the new officer at a Puerto Rico Police station

Starving and abused, the former stray appeared near the police station door

“He approached frightened and was looking for affection and protection”

“We gave him food and water that evening and after eating he stayed with us awhile and left”

The next day the dog came back…and the whole station decided to adopt him!

Gorgi also got a job – he became the station’s surveillance dog!

Though it often seems that his position is an honorary one…

Gorgi also helps to reduce the stress the officers have to deal with at work

“Everyone loves him. He will have everything he needs for as long as he lives”
