The heroic actions of Officer Edwards and the timely rescue of Lucky were shared on social media by SAACS, captivating the hearts of many who applauded the officer’s courage and determination to save the dog’s life.

Lucky’s incredible rescue is a testament to the indomitable spirit of compassion and the unwavering commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of animals in need.

Lucky, the dog trapped on the train tracks, was successfully rescued by Officer Edwards just in time before the train passed. SAACS provided Lucky with a thorough checkup and a comfortable kennel to call his own. Over time, Lucky’s fear subsided, and he became more receptive to forming bonds with people. SAACS expressed that Lucky was now ready for adoption and in search of a loving forever family.

After SAACS posted about Lucky’s terrifying rescue on Facebook, they quickly began to receive a flood of responses from people wanting to know more about the dog. When Mr. C. viewed SAACS’s message, he fell head over heels for Lucky. He made a time to meet Lucky, and as soon as they did, Mr. C. knew Lucky was the dog for him.

“As soon as I saw him, I knew he was the type of dog my family would get along with. He was very laid back and unconcerned,” Mr. C said to SAACS, according to a Facebook post.


Before choosing to permanently take Lucky home, Mr. C. spent thirty minutes hanging out with him at SAACS. After a few of days, Lucky’s adoption was confirmed, and the adorable dog was now prepared to begin his new life with a caring family.

Lucky, who was subsequently given the name Duke, has now gotten used to his new surroundings and is more content than ever with his father.


Duke’s SAACS pals are ecstatic that they were able to save him in time and give him the life he deserved despite the fact that they are still unsure of how he got onto the train tracks.

SAACS said, “We’re not sure whether Lucky’s leash snagged the nail as he went by or if someone restrained him. However, we are very appreciative to individuals who called 3-1-1 to report the emergency and Animal Care Officer Edwards for bringing the man to safety.
