Trooper the dog, up for adoption!

You might remember Trooper--the dog who was nearly killed after being dragged for nearly a mile down Interstate 55 almost a year ago.

Trooper was injured after Benetta Johnson tried to return then six-month old Trooper to her estranged husband by tying the dog to the bumper of her husband's truck. He did not notice the dog and dragged the puppy down I-55, until a fellow motorist notice Trooper and got him to pull over. Johnson was convicted on misdemeanor animal abuse charges and ordered to perform community service, take animal care classes, and make a donation to the Humane Society. 

You can apply to adopt Trooper at: www.hsmo.org/adopttrooper.

Applicants must answer lifestyle questions and provide information about their home environment. Trooper is best suited to a home without other animals and with older children. He will be a good fit for an adopter who understands how to lovingly manage intelligent, strong dogs and has time to spend further training him and providing appropriate exercise. A secure outside area is also a necessity.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a trooper was saved by his bulletproof vest during a shootout.

The incident started after a suspect walked into a First Bank in Marthasville. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money and sped away from the scene. A State Trooper was in the area and chased the suspect onto a nearby highway. The suspect stopped his vehicle and started shooting at the officer. He was hit in the chest, but was able to shoot back and hit the suspect in the leg.

The trooper was taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay.

The suspect is receiving treatment at St. John's Mercy Medical Center.

Benetta Johnson was convicted today for causing a pit bull puppy to be dragged for miles down Interstate 55.

A judge delivered her sentence almost immediately after the verdict. Johnson will serve two years probation and perform 150 hours of community service. She is also barred from owning of caring for a pet for two years. Johnson had her son tie their puppy to the back of her ex-husbands pickup truck. He unknowingly dragged the dog down the highway.

The puppy, named Trooper by the Humane Society, has made a remarkable recovery.

The trial resumes tomorrow for an East St. Louis, Illinois woman accused of animal abuse.

A pit bull puppy was found tied to her her ex-husband's pickup truck and was dragged down a St. Louis interstate.

The case now goes to the defense on Thursday after prosecutors yesterday rested their case in the bench trial of 41-year-old Benetta Johnson.

Authorities believe Johnson tried to return the dog now dubbed Trooper to her ex-husband and, according to her statement to police, told her 13-year-old son last November to put the dog in the bed of her former spouse's pickup truck.

The teen instead tied the puppy to the truck's trailer hitch, and the driver didn't see the dog and began driving down Interstate 55.

The dog survived but underwent a series of operations.
