Life wasn’t always so great for Azul. Four years ago, a military reservist named Nicolas Alejandro Walteros found the pup living on the street, where he’d been injured in a fight with another dog. That’s when he decided to help by welcoming Azul into his life.
“I told him I would give him everything he needed,” Walteros recalled to The Dodo. “And he adopted me as his dad.”
Walteros has taught Azul to ride on his motorcycle. One day while they were out and about, the pair met a police officer who suggested that Azul would make a great motorcycle patrol pup.
Shortly after Azul was part of the team, was wearing a new uniform and had the title of Colonel.
His position has given him a bit of celebrity status in the community, and Walteros hopes that this will help strengthen police-community relations, as well as inspire a newfound respect for animals who are less fortunate.
Well done, you two!
