A photo being shared on social media shows a New York sergeant comforting a frightened dog that had just been hit by a car, even using his coat to provide warmth.
The Chautauqua County (NY) Sheriff's Office posted the image of Sgt. Chris Howlett and Rogue the dog to Facebook on Dec. 20.
"During times that there seems to be negative press towards law enforcement, this shows a bit of compassion on the part of law enforcement and specifically our deputies," the sheriff's office wrote.
Rogue was reunited with her family and treated for her injuries, reports KSAZ.
In an update, the sheriff's office said that Rogue "sustained minor injuries but is expected to be okay."
