When a New Jersey police officer arrived on the scene of a car accident, he found a South Carolina man traveling with his beloved basset hound, Bella.

The man was in need of medical attention so Bella was taken to the local Humane Society. The organization said they could only keep the dog for a week.

But the victim was unable to retrieve his dog, and Bella’s co-owner was unable to get up to New Jersey from Myrtle Beach to take her home.

“It pulled on my heartstrings a little bit,” officer Frank Kuhl “I have two dogs at home, and I got a vibe that this guy feels the same way about dogs that I do.”

He and his squad mate Michael Tancredi made the nearly 650-mile drive down the Eastern seaboard, finally getting Bella back home.
