SHAKER HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -

Shaker Heights police officers went the extra mile for a cute little pup. 

A family experienced some heartbreaking circumstances and was forced to give up their family pet. They didn't want the dog to end up at a shelter so they asked a Shaker Heights police officer to help out. 

The officer took the dog back to the station and it just so happened another police officer was looking for a family pet. 

Officer Matt Dunn was willing to take the dog home and is now a proud papa. 

The police department shared some photos of the new family on their Facebook page
