Las Vegas Commercial Enforcement Trooper Freeman was working a Joint Commercial Enforcement check point in Reno when a German Shepherd strolled in, the Nevada Highway Patrol said in a Facebook post.

Freeman and the dog formed a bond as the shepherd was "quite skittish" around the troopers.

But Animal Control was contacted and they took control of the shepherd.

Freeman received a phone call from a rescue agency on Wednesday with an update. The dog was due to be euthanized in Reno, but the rescue group saved him and called Freeman.

Freeman drove to Reno and adopted the dog.
