A Deputy and His Dog

Written by Mike Turner on May 5, 2014

Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel DiPietro and his K9, Maverick searched for an autistic boy who had wandered from home in the Cedar Hills area.

The deputy and dog soon located the boy, who was wet and shivering due to the frigid water. Autistic kids tend to be attracted to water.

The boy sustained no life-threatening injuries and was able to return home to his parents.
