"I decided to be that person"

 Deputy Josh Fiorelli of the Osceola County Sheriff's Office in Kissimmee, Florida, was passing by when he noticed a dog that had been hit by a car. The dog was alive, but hurt enough that she could not move. Josh called for help and then sat down beside the dog and started petting her.

Some dogs might get defensive when they're hurt, but she seemed to welcome the officer being there. Josh then put his jacket over the dog to keep her warm. He says, "She didn't have anyone, so I decided to be that person." Carlos Irizzary was walking his own dog when he saw Josh and snapped this photo and posted it online. It was later shared by several news outlets around the country. The dog was soon treated for a dislocated leg.
