A dog found lying in a Regina alley with a badly injured leg is getting help from the city’s police officers.

Staff Sgt. Evan Bray says a constable on routine patrol was flagged down Sunday by a frantic woman who found the dog.

It’s believed the dog was hit by a car.

Police took the canine to an emergency animal hospital, but the dog’s owner couldn’t be found, so officers pooled their own money to pay for its treatment.

Bray says veterinarians believe the dog will survive and they’re also hopeful they can save its leg.

Officers have unofficially named the dog “Copper” and hope to find him a good home once he’s recovered.
