Do You Know This Dog?

Hammond. Lake County-Trooper Corey Adam rescued a friendly pit bull mix yesterday that was running in traffic on the ramp from Calumet Avenue to I-80 west bound.
Yesterday, evening Trooper Corey Adam found a white female pit bull mix that was in the roadway on Calumet Avenue northbound to I-80 west bound ramp.  Adam had to block traffic as he coaxed the dog to come up to him.  The dog was friendly, but scared, and Adam was able to get the dog out of the roadway.  Another Good Samaritan stopped and held the dog so Trooper Adam could reopen the ramp to traffic.  The female was placed in the front seat of Adam’s police car;
The dog had no tags or identifying information on it and was turned over to the Hammond Animal Control.
Please contact the Hammond Animal Control if you have any information on the owner of this animal.
