BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A police department is playing the role of puppy delivery for a Maine woman looking for help with her Christmas gift.

The Bangor Police Department says a woman requested their assistance after seeing two officers were in Washington, D.C., as part of the convoy for Wreaths Across America. The organization lays wreaths on the graves of veterans during the holidays.

The Waldoboro woman told the department she adopted a 14-week-old rescue border collie puppy in Virginia, but she couldn't bring the dog back to Maine before the holiday.

The officers responded, saying they don't mind picking up an extra passenger on their way back from Arlington National Cemetery. The wreaths arrive Saturday.

The police department is posting about the experience on Facebook.
