Cop Shuts Down Highway To Save Small Dog

Posted: Updated:

YAHOO.COM - Police officer Kyle Jones of La Porte, Texas, shut down a highway on a rainy day to help a small dog find its way home.

Unbeknown to Officer Jones, a nearby motorist took a photo of the officer's kindhearted gesture. A short time later, the photo of Officer Jones attempting to wrangle the stubborn little pooch was at the top of the popular social network Reddit.

KHOU 11 News has more details. Cujo, the dog, had escaped his home on Monday morning. One of his owners, Jeremy Zapalac, organized a search party in the neighborhood. But after an hour, it started to rain. "He hates water," Zapalac said of the rat terrier.

The dog had wandered over to a nearby highway. Fortunately, Officer Jones saw the small dog, stopped his car (and traffic), and generally went the extra mile to make sure he got home safely.
