It’s a worrying fact, but the reality is that dogs, with all their curiosity and spirit, will get out and go exploring. It makes dog owners worried, but luckily, there are watchful eyes out there, making sure wayward dogs get returned to their homes.
That’s especially true in Taunton, MA, thanks to a police officer who just might be showing signs of a truly amazing gift.
Officer Evan Lavigne has been given the nickname “The Dog Whisperer” thanks to his ability of finding lost dogs, tracking down their owners, and reuniting families.
No one, not even Lavigne himself, is entirely sure what makes the dogs so immediately trusting of Lavigne, but they are. They’re more than happy to hop in the back of his patrol car and be driven home.
It’s always wonderful to see police officers extending their care and protection to the smaller, sometimes overlooked, members of their communities. Because dogs need help, too, as officers and firefighters found when they rescued a dog stuck in a tree.
The dogs in Taunton, though, seem to have an advocate and a real friend in Lavigne. And Lavigne’s dog-whisperer skills are making him a local hero among the human residents of Taunton, too.
