Authorities say a police dog who was stabbed multiple times while trying to take down a suspect in Walnut Creek last month has recovered and returned to work.
The dog, named Sheyna, was trying to help take down a man suspected of hitting a pedestrian with his vehicle when she was stabbed, according to the East Bay Times. Authorities say the suspect also collided with a patrol car and tried to escape.
Police arrested 33-year-old Rolando Gonzalez of Walnut Creek, on suspicion of felony hit-and-run, felony driving under the influence, assault with a deadly weapon, harming a police dog and resisting arrest.
An officer also suffered serious injuries to a leg and hand in the head-on collision. Police say the injured officer is recovering.
It was not immediately known if Gonzalez has an attorney.
The case remains under investigation.
