    A police officer in Taunton, Massachusetts, has a new approach to locating lost dog's owners.

    Patrolman Lavigne was called to Mechanic's Bank on County Street for a loose dog back on August 10. 

    In order to help locate the dog's owner, Lavigne posted a selfie of himself and the dog in the police cruiser.

    Lavigne then notified Animal Control who was able to locate the dog's owners.

    A week later, Lavigne was called to Oak Street for another lost dog.

    Again he posted a selfie with the dog in his police cruiser to help locate the dog's owner.
