The Dallas Police Department received multiple calls today around 12:30pm regarding a pit bull walking on the eastbound lanes of I-20 just before Polk Street. Officer McAfee, who works in the South Central Patrol Division, was dispatched to the call. He located the dog, which was named Lovey, walking in the far left lane. Officer McAfee immediately stopped traffic on that side of the freeway. He exited his vehicle and cautiously approached Lovey.
Once he made sure that the dog was not aggressive or scared of him, he grabbed Lovey and put her in the back seat of his squad car. Lovey is being taken to Dallas Animal Services.
