By jim Published: May 15, 2009

Police in New York arrived to tend to a dog which had been hit by a car and was lying injured on a main road, and found another dog apparently protecting the wounded animal.

Vet Lisa Ortiz from NYC Animal Care and Control said it is not unusual for dogs to try to protect each other.

The injured dog survived with a broken leg and was later reunited with its canine friend at the animal hospital.
