When a call came in on April Fools’ Day about a big yellow Lab wandering around a Chicagoland area neighborhood it was no prank.

“Some lady had found this dog,” Susan Elliot, head of Waukegan Police Animal Control. “I said, ‘I’ll go grab this dog.’ I get over there and the lady is sitting outside with a ginormous dog. He probably weighs 100 pounds.”

As Elliot attempted to load the burly Lab into her car, the woman who found him called out to her.

“She was like, ‘Wait, wait, you have to take this, he was dragging this blanket with him,” Elliot said.
