Exactly where the dog was found in Placer County is unclear, but the pup was nearly hit by several vehicles – including a school bus.

Deputy Adams says the dog was happy to jump in her patrol car for a ride. She couldn’t find a tag on the dog, so the deputy took it to a nearby animal shelter.

Community members say the dog’s name is Diablo and it has since been reunited with his owners.
