Dog rescued after being spotted running in northbound lanes of I-275

Hillsborough County

TAMPA (WFLA) – Traffic on I-275 is always dog gone busy…But one dog made the commute, even more rough after getting loose on the interstate.

Tampa police and drivers including Tampa Mayor Jane Castor worked together to save the boxer mix from any danger.

One Tampa police officer used her skills as an animal control officer to get the pooch into her patrol car.

Tampa police tell us the dog is okay, and is now with the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center.
