A dog that escaped from her owners’ house was found the next day thanks to the dedication of a policeman, reported West France.
On Wednesday November 2 at the end of the afternoon, Lieutenant-Colonel Olivier Valois had just left the gendarmerie barracks of Niort (79) in the company of his wife, when he saw a female Beagle who seemed disoriented, further down the street.

With the help of a passerby, the soldier was able to catch up with the dog and collect her. He and his wife then sifted through wanted notices on social media, hoping to find one that might relate to the Beagle. The couple ended up falling on the corresponding publication.
Lieutenant Colonel Valois was thus able to reach the owner, but the latter was not in Deux-Sèvres at the time; he was traveling to Bordeaux. However, he called his son and asked him to pick up the dog, who answers to the name of Romyat the police station.
The reunion between Camille and Romi
Camille, 12, went there the next morning for a touching reunion with his 4-legged friend. It was well worth a souvenir photo alongside the gendarme thanks to which they were able to take place.
