Anyone Want To Hear A Good Story About Cops And Dogs?
My husband was at work last night, when he saw a boxer that had been hit by a car in the breakdown lane of a major highway. He pulled over seeing that the dog was trying to get up and run back into traffic. Another off duty officer pulled over to help. The boxer was dragging it's hind end and was clearly seriously injured. My hubby called the dog over to him, trying to get her to come away from the 70+ mph traffic. The dog came over, hubby stuck his hand out for her to sniff and she attacked him. He has really bad puncture wounds on his hand. He managed to get a hold of her collar and he and the other officer tried to calm her down. They put her in the other officer's truck and took her to the 24 hour emergency hospital. They found the owner, who had been searching for her dog for hours. Apparently she was out hiking with her dog, when the dog took off after something. The dog has a shattered pelvis and broken legs. They are going to try and save her through surgery. She will have to have plates put in her pelvis and will need to be immobilized for 3 months. The prognosis is excellent if the surgery is successful. My husband is home injured from work for a week with the dog bites. His hand is very swollen and he wouldn't be able to use his gun, so they put him on injured leave. I am amazed that no one stopped to help this poor animal before my husband and the off duty officer stopped to help.
