A group of Broward Sheriff's Office firefighters were in the right place at the right time when they came across a dog suffering from a broken leg after being struck by a car.
The crew from Rescue 32 was returning to their firehouse when they found the pit bull mix curled up on the side of the road on Southwest 40th Avenue in West Park, Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue officials said Tuesday.
The firefighters treated the 2-year-old dog at the scene, then brought him to Hollywood Animal Hospital. He's expected to be okay.
"One of the most unique opportunities for a public safety professional is to have the ability to make a difference in someone’s life each and every day. Even if that someone is of the 4 legged kind," Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Michael B. Kane said in a statement.
