The Tarpon Springs (Florida) Police Department deserves credit for the cutest criminal booking.

Officers in the Tampa suburb on Monday found Willow, a "fugitive K9" who'd "wandered away from home," according to a post on the department's Facebook page.


"Willow refused to tell officers where she lived so she was taken to the PD where she was booked and photographed," the post explains. "She was very cooperative with officers and probably one of the most friendly prisoners we've ever had in custody."

Willow's owners were eventually located and "bonded her out," but not before she got the full perp treatment, complete with mugshot and finger (paw) print.
