“I tried to grab him and he was kind of playing with me. I didn’t want to get down on all fours, so I was just kind of swiping for him,” Harcrow told The Modesto Bee.

Harcrow brought the young dog to the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department where they waited for animal services to collect the puppy.

According Public Information Officer, Sgt. Anthony Bejaran, the pup seemed healthy with no visible wounds.

“He’s a big ham for the camera,” Sgt. Bejaran told InsideEdition.com. “Whenever he enters a room, everyone starts to smile.”

The 12-month-old puppy is now looking for a new home and a loving family. He will be available for adoption for a fee of $90 to cover the costs of vaccinations, neutering and a microchip.
