Clever Dog Walks Into Police Station to Report Himself Missing

While all dogs are good boys and girls, there’s one particular pooch who recently took best behavior to the next level. Meet Chico, a very smart boy who reported himself missing to the Texan Police. The clever canine simply walked through the doors of Odessa Police Department in the middle of the night and hopped up onto the counter with a big friendly grin.

Sergeant Rusty Martin was among the officers who were lucky enough to meet Chico, who reports that the carefree pup didn’t seem too fazed by the fact he was missing. “We were all excited to have him in the building,” he recalls. “We had a tennis ball and threw it in the lobby for a bit. Everyone loved on him.”

After the initial excitement, the police officers tried to find out where Chico came from. He was wearing a collar, but unfortunately the ID tag had fallen off, so animal control was dispatched to come check for a microchip. Chico didn’t hang around though—he decided he’d had enough fun on the run, and decided to return home on his own. “He was given lots of love and attention until he decided it was time for him to leave,” the police officers reveal in a Facebook post. “He let himself out and after an exhausting search was not found. We were relieved to learn he safely returned to his owner. Chico is welcome back anytime.”
