Dogs loose on Phoenix freeway stop traffic

Pets Ok, will be up for adoption this month


Two dogs are OK after running loose on a Phoenix freeway this week.

News helicopters captured footage of the small white dogs trotting around I-17 on Wednesday, KNXV reported

The Arizona Department of Public Safety tried to capture the pets -- and even stopped traffic briefly -- but the dogs kept running, KNXV reported. Officials were eventually able to grab one of the dogs.

Residents of a nearby RV park snagged the second dog, KNXV reported. That dog ran free for nearly an hour.

Maricopa County Animal Care and Control told KNXV that the two dogs will be up for adoption on March 10.
