When you see a dog wandering by the side of the road you’re driving on, it can be a little scary. What if it runs in front of your car?
This happened in an episode of Pit Bulls and Parolees. Tia, the Leader of the Villalobos Rescue Center, received a call that there was a beagle hanging out on the side of the highway.
Tia was told that the dog had been out there for weeks. Luckily she hadn’t gotten hurt yet, but once they knew about her they couldn’t risk it.
Tia had an injured leg herself, and she couldn’t chase the dog. She also knew that it was important to be very cautious if she was to save this dog’s life.
