When dog-loving cop Marcus Montgomery showed up at the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) one day, he was just responding to a routine call. People at the shelter were dealing with an issue with a former employee, so Montgomery quickly helped them resolve the situation. Just as he was about to leave, however, one of the rescuers brought out a sleepy puppy.
The officer was hesitant to approach the pup at first, because he knew that if he got a hold of him, he’d never let him go. Montgomery has a soft spot for pit bulls — and he already has one named Vader — so seeing this little nugget hit him right in the feels.
Try as he might, he just couldn’t leave the shelter without him. By the time work was over for the day, Vader had a new little brother.
Universe, meet Kylo. Montgomery figured that he’d keep going with his Star Wars theme…although this little face doesn’t really look like it’s capable of evil.
Kylo was left on the shelter’s back porch one night. When rescuers came in the following morning, they heard him crying out back, so they rushed to warm him up. Once Montgomery heard Kylo’s story, he knew that this pup deserved to be part of a loving family.
The officer was worried about how Vader would react to the surprise addition, but as you can see, Kylo has since inserted himself into Vader’s life. He’s a pretty cute big brother, isn’t he?
Talk about an awesome day at work, am I right? All work days should end in puppies. It should be a law. Maybe Officer Montgomery can help us out with that.
