Last Updated: 118 days ago
A Pennsylvania patrol officer is being called a hero after he rescued a German Shepherd after it ran away from a vehicle involved in a car accident.
Since the rescue on Sunday, a photo of the patrol officer Nick Ague carrying the dog has gone viral.
Ague heard a radio call about a dog running off after a car accident. The dog, Mya, was later found, but she could no longer walk after burning her paws on the hot asphalt and running on bad terrain.
When Ague saw she was having trouble walking, he carried her about 100 yards to her owner's car.
10News learned that Mya is doing well and she is recovering.
