A dog is left injured in the road after being hit by a car – this officer kept her warm until help arrived

It worries me when I see a dog, without an owner, roaming near a busy road.

They often get confused by traffic and can step out at any moment so I’m always mindful and drive slow just in case.

What angers me is when I hear about an animal being hit and the driver doesn’t stop. How can these people live with themselves?

It was a cold and wet morning when this poor pup was left with a dislocated leg after being hit by a car. She was all alone as she lay injured at the side of the street.

Thankfully a deputy stopped and went above and beyond the call of duty

Deputy Josh Fiorelli, from Osceeola County Sheriff’s Office, in Kissimmee, Florida, stopped when he saw the injured hound.

“It was cold out. She was wet,” said Deputy Fiorelli, according to  WFTV News . “She didn’t have anyone there so I decided to be that person.”

A man who was out walking his dog saw the sweet scene and snapped a picture, posting it on a social media with the caption, “This is something that you don’t see every day.”

The deputy had removed his own coat and was using it to keep the dog warm until help arrived.

“I know a lot of dogs become defensive when they get hurt. She was not defensive at all. She was accepting of me trying to pet her and take care of her,” Deputy Fiorelli said.

The dog, who had nothing to identify her, is being cared for at the Osceola County Animal Shelter. She is expected to make a full recovery.

Thank you, Sheriff Russ Gibson, for the update to my previous post. And the dog is expected to be ok! ❤️

If the owner doesn’t come forward she will get the surgery she needs and a forever home will be found for her.

It’s great to know that there are still good people in this old world. Thank you Sir!

Thank you so much for your wonderful gesture Deputy Fiorelli – Share this post to pay tribute to this police officer.
