MOORE, Oklahoma - A dog had to jump off a highway bridge in Moore to avoid being hit by a semi-truck. And now, the pup is recovering and looking for a forever home.

According to officials with Moore Animal Welfare, the dog was crossing I-35 at N.W. 5th Street in Moore when it had to jump from the highway to avoid being hit by a semi.

A citizen witnessed the incident, and contacted animal welfare employees. A local Veterinarian offered to treat the dog's injuries.

Now, animal welfare officials say they want to make sure the dog finds a good home and receives the proper care needed to make a full recovery.
