Deputy Marc Melville responded to a call that a man deserted a dog and her puppies, but only found one of the pups
SPOKANE — An abandoned puppy found a new home with a Spokane County sheriff's deputy Monday.
Deputy Marc Melville responded to a call of a man who appeared to be leaving puppies in the roadway at Thierman Road and Appleway Blvd. Monday at 4:12 a.m., according to a news release.
The caller reported seeing a man dropping an adult dog and five or six puppies out of their vehicle then driving away, Melville said. However, he only found one puppy and didn't find the dumper.
"If I'd been able to find all of them I'd have had every single one in my house," Melville said.
Melville said he couldn't resist the puppy's charms. His bright blue eyes were the clincher.

"He looked at me, he licked my nose and that was pretty much all she wrote on that one," he said.
Melville said the puppy is getting along well with his other dogs and seems to be happy and healthy.
"I just know he's a heart-stealer," Melville said.
