Officers clearing from a call this morning near Beltline and River Avenue noticed a black and white Chihuahua dog in the yard at Delta Sand and Gravel. They initially thought the dog belonged there and departed to handle other calls. A short time later a lieutenant noticed a woman parked in a prohibited area near River Avenue and then saw the dog running onto Beltline travelling eastbound. The lieutenant activated her emergency lights to slow traffic as the dog ran away. About midway over the river, the dog turned west and fled towards the stopped traffic. Numerous motorists exited their vehicles and tried to catch the scared dog, to no avail. Traffic resumed normal flow and the lieutenant went to contact the woman believed to be the owner.

The lieutenant was unable to locate the woman but did see the Chihuahua inside the fence of an area business on River Avenue. With the help of an Animal Welfare officer and a sergeant, the three were able to coax the tired, scared dog from between a fence and the storage units into the safety of the lieutenant’s hands.

The dog was transported to First Avenue Shelter.
