ARLINGTON (AP) - A North Texas police officer who chose not to shoot a pit bull that acted aggressively toward passers-by has adopted the dog.

Arlington police Sgt. Gary Carter saved the pooch from the city pound.

Carter on June 27 was summoned to the scene of a dog chasing residents. But Carter and another officer took time to observe the dog’s behavior and determined that the animal was just thirsty, lost and afraid.

The officers used a protein bar to lure the pooch into the patrol car for a lift to the dog pound.

Video of the capture went viral and was viewed worldwide.

On Thursday, with time running out for the dog before euthanasia, Carter rescued “Jeffrey” and adopted the animal.

First order of business was to rename the dog “Chance.”
