Attempts to reach the dog's owner that evening were unsuccessful; they were apparently not at home during the time of the incident. Authorities said they planned to follow up with them the next day.
In the meantime, officer Jay Hollman, who was on hand to aid in the catch, says he's heartened by how everything turned out.
"It was the best feeling I ever felt," Hollman told ABC Action News. "He didn't hit the ground. He wasn't dead. The citizens were cheering like it's the Super Bowl. For everyone to come together for a small little dog shows the community has love for each other and they still care."
