Adorable puppy reunited with Woodridge Community Service Officer after rescue


Last updated 2/3/2020 at 1:43pm

On the morning of December 29, 2019, a Woodridge

resident found a lost puppy at Forest Glen Parkway and Woodridge Drive. Madalyn Anderson,

community service officer, immediately connected with the puppy and

assisted. A Woodridge Police Department Facebook post seeking

information about the puppy to help bring him home reached more than

450,000 people. Although the owner was never found, ultimately, the new

adoptive family contacted the Woodridge Police Department to provide

an update. On January 27, 2020, CSO Anderson and the puppy, Bógdan,

had a heartfelt reunion.

"When I first saw this puppy, I immediately noticed the cuteness and fun

personality," said CSO Anderson. "He was a bit of a Houdini too, having

somehow gotten out of a cage on the way to the DuPage County Animal

Services building."

The adoptive family contacted the Woodridge Police Department to

follow-up that the puppy is now in a happy home. Named Bógdan, which

means "gift of God" in Polish, Bógdan now has an older brother that is

also a German Shepard. Bógdan is happy, loved, and has a playful spirit

that brings joy to those around him. CSO Anderson and Bógdan met at

the Woodridge Police Department lobby for the heartfelt reunion. The Woodridge Police Department is committed to improving the quality of life in the Woodridge community,

and that commitment includes pets. To help find lost pets,

the Woodridge Police Department encourages people to

microchip their pets. A microchip is a radio-frequency ID

transponder that carries a unique ID number. When a vet

or shelter scans the chip, it transmits the ID number –

which can help identify the owner.

"The Woodridge Police Department greatly appreciates

the people and community organizations that help lost

pets," said Tom Stefanson, Deputy Chief. "We're thrilled to

close the loop that this story has a happy ending."
