Lost dog turns herself in at police station: video

A lost dog walked into a UK police station and seemed to turn herself in to cops, who collared the missing collie and returned her to her owners.

Newly released video shows the black-and-white border collie stroll through the automatic doors of the police station in Loughsborough, a town 43 miles southeast of Birmgingham, not long after she ran away from her owners on Nov. 4.

“We’ve collared the CCTV of the Border Collie, Rosie, so you can see her approaching the doors before walking in and taking a seat in the corner. Good dog!” Leicestershire police said in a Monday Facebook post that shared the video.

Staff “fetched some water for Rosie” and “made fast friends with plenty of fuss,” the post added.

“Thankfully she was wearing a collar, so a lead was available to contact Rosie’s owner, who was delighted she had been found safe and well,” it said.

“Rosie” is seen walking in through automatic doors, then sitting in a corner.

Julie Harper said her husband had taken Rosie and another dog for a walk in Southfield Park on Nov. 4 when someone shot off a firecracker, terrifying the 10-year-old rescue pup – who loves chasing squirrels but “hates bonfire night.”

Rosie ran back to her husband but “shot off” without a leash after another firecracker was set off, Harper said, according to the Nottingham Post.

Her distraught husband began to walk the other home when cops called Harper at home.

“They said, ‘Have you got a black and white collie?’” Harper, 61, said, according to the newspaper. “I said ‘Yes,” and they said, ‘She just walked up and handed herself in to the station.”

Commenters on the police force’s Facebook post applauded Rosie, with one suggested it would “make it a lot easier” if all dogs learned to do the same.

“Clearly understands the stranger danger rule and headed for the police for help. Well done Rosie,” said another.

One jokester said it was obvious Rosie “wants to be part of the K-9 unit and become a police dog.”
