WINCHESTER, Va. — A Winchester, Va. police dog, recovering from an injury, is gaining support from around the world.

Dakota, or "Kota" as his handler Winchester Police Cpl. Brittney Kotynski-Neer calls him, underwent leg surgery after falling through a crawl space earlier this month. Kotynski-Neer responded to a home burglary and Kota tracked down two suspects in the home's crawl space which proved too thin for his weight.

"We heard a loud crash, which subsequently was him falling through the ceiling," Kotynski-Neer said.
