A short story with a happy ending, thanks to one person who took the time to make a difference. On Thursday Robby, a police K-9, went missing. The 10 year old police dog disappeared from his handler’s backyard in Friendswood, CA. A story that could have had a tragic ending turned into a happy reunion.

Robby, a 70- to 75-pound Belgian Malinois, was picked up by “a good Samaritan,” Friday morning and taken to a vet, said police spokesman Vance Mitchell. When police searching for the dog made calls to local vets, they happened to call the one where Robby had been taken.

Robby was reported to be in good health and was returned to his handler on Friday. On behalf of Dogster, I’d like to give a big thanks to the “good Samaritan” who took the time to make sure Robby made it home safely.
