    Pup on Highway Didn’t Want to Leave Dead Dog’s Side: NJ Police
    New Jersey State Police
    The German Shepherd didn't want to leave a dead pit bull it was found beside on Interstate 280.

    Police in New Jersey say they had to coax a German Shepherd on a busy interstate to leave a dead pit bull that it was found lying next to.

    New Jersey state police troopers responded Thursday morning to a report of two dogs in the shoulder of Interstate 280 in Newark.

    The troopers said the pit bull was dead when they arrived. They say the German Shepherd didn't want to leave its side, but they were able to coax it into a trooper's car.

    Police say neither dog had a collar or any identification on it. The German Shepherd was given to a dog rescue.


    It wasn't clear how the dog died and the case remained under investigation.
