Police dog makes himself at home with family after escape

Posted: Updated:
WEBSTER, Mass. (WHDH) -- - Skylar Vincent was up early feeding neighborhood cats in Webster when she saw something unusual.

“I saw this dog came up to me, at first I thought it was a wolf,” the 13-year-old said.

The dog wasn’t a wolf, but it was a 4-year-old Dutch shepherd named Radar that got loose from his post with the Webster Police Department.

Skylar and her family said that Radar made himself at home, he even walked right in the door when it was opened.

“I went in my room and he was already in there laying on my bed sleeping. I came in the room and all of a sudden he gets up and comes up to me and he wags his tail a little. I just pet him a little bit and he went back to my bed  to sleep again,” Hailey Vincent said.

Radar is usually part of the search team, but as he was making friends with Skylar and her family other officers and emergency officials were searching for him.

Webster police eventually tracked Radar down, he’d gone four streets over from where he took off.

The police department was glad to have Radar back, and in pictures you can see he was glad to be back with them too.
