A lost Pit Bull found the right person to help her when she jumped through the open window of an unmarked police car and onto the lap of an unsuspecting police officer.
D.C. police Sgt. James Black had come to a stop at a red light in Washington, DC when he was startled by the unexpected visitor. Grateful to have found a human to help her, the dog began licking his face. The veteran officer told the Washington Examiner, "I went from being startled to laughing."
Sgt. Black drove back to the station with the affectionate dog on his lap the entire way. While at the station officers gave her some food and water until animal control arrived. Soon after, she was brought to the Washington Humane Society and named Star.
Scott Giacoppo, the vice president of the Humane Society credits the dog's sixth sense in getting herself the help she needed. "She just happened to jump in the right car at the right time. She's very lucky," Scott said.
Star is an energetic dog and between 1 and 2 years old. Anyone who knows who the dog may belong to, or is interested in adopting her is asked to contact the Washington Humane Society. They can be reached at 202-576-6664.
