A Pasco police officer plans to adopt a dog he rescued after she was hit by a car.

Officer Eric Fox was on his way to work Thanksgiving morning when he drove past the dog on I-182 near Road 36. The pit bull-boxer mix was lying on the side of the road, and she wasn’t moving.

The dog had been hit by a car and suffered a broken hip.

Officer Fox took the dog to Mid-Columbia Pet Emergency Services off Sandifur Parkway where he and Officer Julie Lee paid for her initial treatment.

The police department has been trying to find the dog’s original owner, but has not been successful.

On Friday, Officer Fox said that he plans to adopt the dog, who he calls “Chancie,” if no one comes forward.

In the meantime, Chancie will need time to recover from her injury.

Two local dog shelters – Forgotten Dogs Rescue and Mikey’s Chance – have offered to cover the rest of her medical bills.
