Hamden animal control, residents ‘feverishly’ search for dog hit by car

HAMDEN — Town police said a puppy has been reunited with his family after he broke free from his leash and was hit by a car, fleeing the area, prompting an hourslong search.

Around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, an 8-month-old English bulldog broke free from his harness and was hit by a vehicle in the area of Dixwell Avenue and Thompson Street, according to Capt. Ronald Smith.

Smith said the dog, Kobe, fled the area with a stomach injury.

More than 30 residents in the area, along with Hamden Animal Control, “feverishly searched for him for hours,” Smith said.

A good Samaritan spotted Kobe hours later on Four Rod Road and brought him to the local animal hospital.

Smith said Kobe has since been reunited with his family.

“Without the assistance of our caring residents, the outcome might have been different,” Smith said. “We at the Hamden Police Department/Animal Control Division cannot thank you enough.”
