Florida police remove 135-pound St. Bernard from Dollar General store

The dog, named Bentley, apparently escaped from his home by going through a broken gate. The pet pooch then walked down the block to a nearby Dollar General in Bradenton, Florida.

After Bentley spent a few hours walking around the store, the manager had to lock up for the night so she called police to handle the dog, according to social media posts from the Bradenton Police Department.

“The shopper was Bentley, a giant pooch who wandered away from home, into the store & spent hours browsing,” the post continued. “Officers found Bentley’s owner & returned him – no receipt required!”
