A two-year-old dog, struck by a carin Ottawa, is recovering well thanks to the actions of a good Samaritan.
According to the Ottawa Police Service (OPS), the German Shepherd/Australian Border Collie mix named 'Whiskey' was struck on Blair Road last month, and the driver fled the scene when the dog ran away.
An Ottawa resident who saw the accident stopped to call police, while looking for the injured animal.
Whiskey was located a short time later at her home, but police say the pet's owner was unable to take her to an animal hospital because he had a critical medical appointment.
OPS staff sergeant Pete Danyluk offered to help and drove Whiskey to the Ottawa Veterinary Clinic in his police car.
Whiskey is expected to make a full recovery.
