Firefighter Mike Thawley took the puppy in as a foster. He has now adopted the puppy and named him “Loki” after the God of Fire.
This isn’t the first time Thawley has adopted an abandoned dog. Five years ago, he took in “Chunk,” a pit bull found chained to a fence and suffering from mange off Richards Boulevard.MORE NEWS: Call Kurtis Investigates Whether You’re Getting What You Paid For At The Pump
