Meet Luigi!

He’s looking bright and aware today – but last week, you might not have said that after hearing his adventure.

Luigi’s story begins on I-35, one of the busiest, if not THE busiest, highways in Dallas. It was during rush hour traffic that the Dallas Police Department received a call about a stray dog that was on the road as cars whizzed by. When officers arrived on the scene, they discovered that Luigi had been struck by a car and was laying in the road. Uncertain of his condition, officers stepped in to move him from the road and in the process, narrowly avoided being struck by a car that struck their cruiser from behind.

Our friends at Fox 4 News covered Luigi’s story:

Dr. Karen Fling shares the latest update on Luigi:

Close examinations at Luigi’s condition reveal that he suffered from a concussion, lacerations, and a fractured pelvis. He is struggling to walk, but we are hopeful that with the right specialist care, he will be ready for a forever home of his own in no time.

Thanks to our friends at the Dallas Police Department, Luigi has a second chance at life.
