When a cop responds to a “vicious dog” call and arrives to find a pit bull, things often don’t turn out well. When Baltimore officer Dan Waskeiwicz showed up to just such a situation in May of 2012, the pit bull he encountered was anything but vicious. Waskeiwicz followed the dog into an alley, where it approached him, tail between its legs. The pit bull licked his pants. The cop gave him a bottle of water. And the love affair began. He bundled the sweetie into his squad car, took him to the shelter, and then decided to take him home. He named him Bo, and now the allegedly vicious dog lives with Waskeiwicz and his two other dogs. Happily, we hope, ever after. Good cop, good dog.
