It was a real policeman who kidnapped the German Shepherd Thor, who has become something of a national celebrity after being scheduled to be put down for biting another dog.

Original reports indicated that a man impersonating a police officer took Thor from Hestehavehus Hundepension kennel on Tuesday night, the evening before the dog was scheduled to be put down. But it turns out that the dog was rescued by police assistant Lars Bo Lomholt, who now faces charges of misconduct.

Lomholt has 20 years experience as a police officer. He said that he took the dog for moral reasons.

"I know I did something crappy," he told Ekstra Bladet tabloid. "But I had simply had enough."

According to media reports, Lomholt faces losing his job and may also be fined for his action.

The fate of Thor is at this point unknown.
