There was a gloomy scenario in the Vanrai, Goregaon Police Station, Mumbai, as an puppy adopted by cops there in was lost and couldn't be traced for good three weeks. Cops after a lot efforts and thorough sourcing couldn't reunite with their beloved puppy. They did every thing in their prowess, but to no avail. Their informers also failed them. This sent a wave of anxiety in all the cops stationed there as they had to go without Jackie playing with them.
An year back, a police cop had found him playing on the road astray, adopted him and brought him to the Police station. Where with his fellow cops named him Jackie in consensus, his name was adapted from the name of an Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff who is also very fond of dogs himself. Reportedly, Jackie, the puppy was just a few months old when brought to the police station. The cops taught him tricks and sniffing, eventually they grew fond of Jackie, and then loved him like their own family.
"One year old Jackie was an abandoned pet whom I had adopted and kept at the police station. Soon, he became very popular as he played with all the cops here. So, when he suddenly went missing last month, we all were worried," said the senior inspector Sudhir Ranshevre.
As the last resort, cops approached an NGO "Animals Matter To Me" for help. It was when this NGO "Animals Matter To Me" posted a photograph of Jackie on their Facebook page, with his details and seeking help to find it, they started getting leads on him.
The NGO's animal activist Mr. Nayak said they purposefully hid the information that, Jackie was cops' pet. When asked why, he said, "For untold reasons, hiding the fact would help getting leads on Jackie faster".
Nayak furthered, "Though we got many messages on Facebook, a particular message with an image of Jackie from watchman Uttam Singh of an estate in Goregaon proved to be a boon for lamenting in love cops."
Jackie was rescued from an abandoned plot scared and hungry. As soon as he found his beloved masters, he jumped up to them wagging his tail.
After the sweet reunion, Ranshevre ensured that the pet is securely kept inside the police station. "The entire police staff is happy to see Jackie back again. Pets are surely stress busters, especially in a high-stress place like police station," a happy Ranshevre said.
