MOORE, Okla. – A sweet dog that was forced to jump from a bridge is now recovering at a local veterinarian’s office.

However, workers at the Moore Animal Welfare Division are trying to find a loving home for the pup after it heals from its injuries.

Authorities with the City of Moore, say the dog was crossing I-35 at N.W. 5th St. in Moore when it had to jump from the highway to avoid being hit by a semi-truck.

A resident spotted the dog and immediately called animal welfare for help.

The dog was rushed to a local veterinarian’s office, who offered to help with the pup’s treatment.

However, workers at the animal welfare division wanted to make sure that the dog finds a loving home that can give it the proper care it needs to make a full recovery.

Experts believe she is about 1-year-old and they have named her Bridget.

Also, a donation site has been set up to help pay for medical costs.
