Another police officer arrived at the scene while Earl finished up with the accident and called animal control to come get the animal, trapped in a cardboard box in the heat and dehydrated. Earl explained:

I told the guy ... to cancel animal control. I’m going to take the puppy and get her to a vet and check her out.

When the officer arrived, the puppy - a little female - hadn't moved, she was still too weak. Earl placed the poor animal, named Bridget, in his patrol car before heading home. He then called a veterinarian and gave her food and water.

Already very attached to the little puppy, Earl decided to adopt her. The man already has eight other dogs at home, all saved from shelters. After a short period of observation, Bridget perfectly integrated to the group and is living happily there.

Sadly, the person who abandoned the pup has not been found. But thankfully for Bridget, this story ended happily. Earl concluded:

She’s just a very, very sweet loving dog.
