FORT WORTH -- It was a rescue Fort Worth cops were prepared for. Last Tuesday the boys in blue took over I-30 near Beach Street to save a dog from oncoming traffic.

Officers Allen Speed and Paul Garcia can be seen offering the Rat Terrier they named Beach some treats. When cops finally got a hold of Beach, folks on the opposite side of the blockade let out cheers and honks!

But that wasn't the end of the journey for this four-year-old dog. She was taken over to the North Texas Humane Society to make sure she was healthy.

Just over a week after her rescue, Beach has been given a clean bill of health according to the humane society.

Although no one knows how this sweet pup made it onto the expressway, after further inspection it looks like Beach once had a loving home.

But Beach is one lucky dog. On Thursday, she was adopted. Hey, this puts a whole new meaning to adopting a rescue.

Thanks to Fort Worth cops, Beach can now look forward to spreading' the love in her fur-ever home.

Now that's something to honk about!
