Heartwarming photo shows sergeant comfort scared dog hit by car

A dog who was struck by a car in New York in snowy conditions needed a helping hand, and a police sergeant didn’t hesitate to assist.

The dog, named Rogue, was hit by a car on Dec. 20. In a photo posted on Facebook, Sgt. Chris Howlett, of the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office, is seen comforting the dog as she lies on a snowbank, covered by a law enforcement jacket.

Rogue’s family says the dog was taken to an animal hospital for treatment of minor injuries and is doing well.
