When the Dallas Police Department was alerted of a stray dog running through traffic on a busy highway during rush hour, they stepped in to try and help the situation from ending badly.
When officers arrived, they found that Luigi had been struck by a car and was laying in the road. They pulled over to help him, but as an officer dragged him to the shoulder, a passing car struck the police cruiser. Luckily, both the officer and Luigi were safely out harms way.
When Luigi was brought to East Lake Pet Orphanage, he immediately went into emergency care where he was discovered to have several fractured vertebrae, lacerations on his legs and face, and was recovering from a concussion. We are hopeful that he will have a full recovery and will soon find a forever home off the streets.
