Dog surprises officer by giving birth in squad car


PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. — A pit bull delivered quite a surprise in the back of a Prescott Valley patrol car. Prescott Valley police said Tuesday that an officer picked up the pit bull on Friday from an area woman who had been watching the dog.

The officer noticed the dog appeared quite pregnant, but the woman told him she was not. She told the officers she was only supposed to watch the dog for a short time and that its owners never picked her up.

The officer put the dog in the back of his patrol car to be impounded, but when he got to the station, he found more than one dog in the back.

Dutchess had given birth to a male puppy during the ride. The officer took the dog to a kennel and brought the puppy to her.

Soon after, she gave birth to a second puppy.

Dutchess was taken to the Yavapai Humane Society and is believed to have given birth to more puppies but it’s unclear how many.
