State trooper rescues pup ‘hot doggin’ it’ on highway

MSP Jerky dog

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts state trooper has rescued a dog running loose in the middle of the highway with the bribe of a delicious snack.

Trooper Nick D’Angelo responded to reports of a pup running loose along Interstate 190 in Worcester Wednesday morning.

State police say the dog, named Dozier, was “hot doggin’ it,” down the road as stopped motorists tried to capture him.

D’Angelo lured Dozier over to safety with some homemade deer jerky.

Dozier was reunited with his owner.

Massachusetts State police say, “always great making new friends, two and four-legged.”
