DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas police officer who rescued a dog will end up taking the dog home.

Police found the dog lying on Interstate 35’s concrete barrier last week. KXAS-TV reports (https://bit.ly/19E0lBA ) that the dog seemed to take an immediate liking to Officer John Rogers, who was able to get the dog into his police cruiser.

Rogers sent photos of the dog to his wife, who replied that she wanted to keep the dog if no one claimed it.

Says Rogers, “It was close to Valentine’s. I didn’t want to take a chance at undermining that.”

Rogers has named the dog Laurel. They’ll reunite Thursday and head home.
