Halis Arslan, a traffic cop who has served at the same intersection in the Black Sea city of Sinop for over a dozen years, met Köpük (Foam) on duty over a year ago.

After he started feeding and watering the friendly dog, Arslan and Köpük quickly became friends.

The stray dog ​​stays by the side of the traffic officer all day long, a heartwarming sight that has not escaped the locals.

In an interview with the Anadolu agency, Arslan said that Köpük waited for him in his parking lot every morning.

Arslan tells how he always feeds Köpük during the day and says that he makes sure that the dog is safe even though he cannot leave his hometown.

When Köpük recently fell ill, Arslan said, “we took him to an animal shelter and treated him well,” but later found that he had refused to eat there for four days.

“I got really excited and asked the animal shelter to send Köpük back to me,” he explained.
