DARTMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) - The state police barracks in Dartmouth had an unexpected visitor on Wednesday when a trooper picked up a lost dog on the side of a busy roadway.

A trooper was able to locate the dog and get it into their cruiser unharmed.

New Bedford Animal Control later stopped by to pick up the wayward pooch and reunite it with its owner.
