SHELBY COUNTY, Ala. - A deputy in Alabama has a new best friend.

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office said Deputy Rory Dempsey went to an animal complaint call and found a dog extremely malnourished.

The deputy wanted to help the dog more instead of taking it to a shelter, according to the Sheriff's Office.

He adopted the dog, so his new pet knew she would get the love and care she deserves.

"Now Zoey has a backyard, plenty of food and treats and other happy dogs to play with," the social media post said.
