Dog pushed out of moving car: Good Samaritan saves pooch's life

On Thursday morning, a Good Samaritan noticed a driver in a dark colored car push a white dog out onto the side of the road in the Hill District of Pittsburgh. Fortunately, the kind motorist was there to save the dog's life reported

Mike Carter saw it happen, and although his first instinct was to chase the car who booted the dog out onto a highway, Carter needed to attend to the dog's safety first.

“I saw the dog walking on the side of the road by itself. It looked old and kind of worn down, so I pulled over and picked up the dog,” stated Mike Carter.

After giving the dog some water and calming him down, Carter brought the dog to the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center in Pittsburgh. This afternoon, the organization's Facebook page stated:

"She is currently under close observation & being treated for some bloody discharge, but her prognosis looks good. We've also begun the process of a humane investigation."

Later information indicates the West Highland White mix has been identified through a micro-chip and has been returned to her owner. It was not the owner who was in possession of the dog when she was thrown out of the car.

The information will be updated as it becomes available.
