VIDEO: Toledo Anchor Rescues Pitbull, Searches for Owner on Air

Angi Gonzalez, anchor for WNWO in Toledo, used her chicken dinner to rescue a stray pit bull found wandering outside the NBC affiliate’s studios.

In the report aired on WNWO and posted to the station’s website, Gonzalez can be seen feeding the dog and later carrying the stray pooch to her car.  The station is updating viewers on the dog’s condition and subsequent search for her owner on its facebook page, its website, and on air.

The station said the pooch is on hold until 6 p.m. tomorrow.  After that, the dog will be given a behavior evaluation and possibly put up for adoption.Lucas County dog warden, Julie Lyle told the station she wanted to remind people that its not just the lucky pit bull who needs a home,  “A lot of people focus on a dog that has media attention,” Lyle said on the WNWO website.  “She needs a home just like the rest of our dogs but unfortunately we have probably 130 dogs in our building now and probably 50 up for adoption.”
