Dog Roaming on Busy Freeway Rescued by Sheriff’s Depuity

A Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputy and some good Samaritans rescued a frightened dog trapped on the busy I-10 freeway.

1.11.16 - I-101

A Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputy and a few good Samaritans stopped what could have been a tragedy on Arizona’s busy I-10 freeway.  A dog was loose in traffic, weaving in and out of cars trying to escape.  They managed to get the dog off of the road and to safety before anything bad happened.

A sheriff’s deputy was responding to what he thought was a traffic accident.  Cars and trucks were backing up big time on the I-10, congesting traffic. Upon his arrival, he came across several people out of their cars trying to corral a large, brown dog running through traffic.

The officer stopped any more traffic from passing through the area, and the others helping got the dog into a car, and away from harm.  Many people on the road were trying their best to hold back oncoming traffic, a risky move on such a busy stretch of road.

No one, including the dog, was injured in the incident.  The dog was taken away to a local animal shelter, where he underwent a medical exam to ensure his health.  After it was determined the dog was physically unharmed, the hunt for his family is on.

  1. Oh thank goodness they were able to prevent this great dog from being killed and also causing an accident. The more i hear about Maricopa County and the Sheriff’s office on facebook the more respect and caring I have for them.

  2. This was a nice story….but why do so many of these Yahoo stories have misspellings in headlines and article?

  3. I read great articles about Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office frequently. Doesn’t surprise me at all that they will do whatever it takes to secure public health and safety not only for the citizens who can vote, but also for the furry citizens who can’t.
