A Pima County sheriff’s deputy is creating lots of smiles on social media after taking a dog for a ride along.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department said Deputy Donald Molchan was patrolling the area of Ajo Way and Country Club Road Sunday when he found the dog wandering alone near a Circle K.

Molchan could have kept going about his work day, but instead he stopped to give the dog food and water and try to find its owner.

The friendly pooch had a collar and was neutered, so Molchan let it jump in the front seat of his patrol car and took it to the Pima Animal Care Center, but not before snapping a few adorable selfies first!

If you recognize the dog, please call the Pima Animal Care Center at (520)724-5900.
