Dash cam captures police officer rescuing dog hit by car on I-275

PINELLAS PARK, Fla. -- A Pinellas Park police officer received praise on Monday for walking out onto a busy interstate to rescue a dog he just saw get hit by a vehicle.

The dog turned out to be OK after darting out in front of a car, but those scary moments on I-275 near 38th Avenue were caught on video.

"My heart really sank until I started seeing him breathing," Ofc. Joseph Puglia said.

Video from Puglia's dash cam showed him stopping and getting out of his vehicle within seconds.

"I came back [in the SUV] and got an emergency blanket to wrap the dog in, because I didn't want to hurt him any further," Ofc. Puglia said.

He then got the dog with no tag into the SUV and called dispatch.

Incredibly, the dog survived with just minor cuts and scrapes.
