SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A firefighter has taken a special liking to a dog rescued from a highway off-ramp.
The Sacramento Fire Department says firefighters from Station 1 were on an off-ramp along Interstate 5 when they spotted an abandoned dog.
Firefighters were able to rescue the dog and bring it to safety.
The little pup was injured, so it was taken to a vet and underwent some minor surgery.
Firefighters say the dog has now been given a clean bill of health. One of the firefighters says they’ll be adopting the little guy, the department says.
The dog has been named “Freeway.”
