Spotting the lifeless body of a small puppy lying on the side of a road was particularly difficult for two members of the Albuquerque FBI.
Special Agent Diana Parker and Victim Assistance Coordinator Dana Hernandez, both long-time dog owners, were on official business inside New Mexico’s Navajo Indian Reservation when they took a wrong turn and came upon the bleeding canine.
Although the agents assumed the dog was dead, when Hernandez glanced in her rear-view mirror, she saw the injured animal raise his head. She turned her truck around.
“I saw him pick up his head and we just couldn’t believe it,” Hernandez said. “He’d been attacked by coyotes and had been lying there like that for a couple of days. He came hobbling over to us in so much pain and his little tail was wagging as if to say, ‘I know you’re here to save me.’”
She and Parker, who heads up the bureau’s Evidence Response Team, wrapped the severely wounded puppy in a blanket, quickly finished their business, and headed for the vet’s office.
Dr. David Levenson, a veterinarian in Corrales and an FBI Citizens’ Academy alumni, treated the puppy’s deep gashes.
