A deputy with the Lee County Sheriff's Office was on puppy patrol early Wednesday morning.
Deputy Robinson was making his rounds in Fort Myers when a dog was spotted in the roadway at US-41 and Beacon Manor Drive at about 3 a.m.
According to the deputy, the pup was hit by a car. Robinson picked the dog up from the road and brought him to safety. Unfortunately, the dog had already sustained injuries to his hind legs.
Deputy Robinson called animal control to treat the injured pup.
While waiting for animal control to arrive, the dog was visibly scared and shaking.
Nonetheless, the puppy was removed from further danger thanks to the heroics of one of our own!
