“Miraculously the dog emerged unharmed and was rescued by responding LAPD officers,” the PIO wrote in one of several tweets about the pursuit. “The puppy is now in the care of South LA Animal Services, where it is currently being held pending an investigation into the abandonment concerns that were noted during the follow-up.”
