Around 1800 hours a citizen found a dog cold and scared sitting on Rt. 2. They picked the dog up and brought him to the firehouse because everywhere else was closed. We took the dog in with open arms and started trying to find his home. We all put pictures and descriptions of Mongo (not his real name) on every social media site we could to try to find his home. About 6 hours later his owners called station 12 and were relieved to know that we had him safe. The reunion was the best Christmas gift they could ask for. We were glad to see Oscar (His real name) make it home safe to his family.
