Two dogs rescued by a trucker after seeing them thrown from a moving SUV on Interstate 81 in Upstate New York earlier this month were reunited Friday for the first time since the incident.
New York State Police continue their investigation, and a reward of $16,500 has been offered for information that leads to the arrest of the person or persons who dumped the dogs.
The trucker, identified only as Adam, stopped his tractor-trailer in the left lane when he saw the two dogs thrown from the SUV. He was bringing them back to his truck when troopers arrived and administered first aid. The one dog’s front leg was so badly damaged that it had to be amputated but is recovering well.
The dogs have been named Adam and Trooper in honor of their rescuers. They were reunited earlier this week.
