CONTRA COSTA, Calif. — California Highway Patrol officers rescued a frightened Chihuahua trapped on a busy highway in Contra Costa Friday.

NBC Bay Area reports that officers received a call that  the dog was sitting in the middle of the center divider. Officer Alex Edmon and his partner responded and spotted the scared animal.

"We attempted to coax it, we could tell it was very frightened, it was shaking - we were able to pet it a little bit, but other than that we could tell it was not happy," Officer Alex Edmon said.

After Edmon attempted to coax the dog with a snack, the officers decided to call animal control, as they had no way of transporting the Chihuahua on their motorcycles.

The 2-year-old pup was rescued without injury. Officers are unsure how the dog became stranded.

Officials say a home may be lined up for the Chihuahua if an owner does not come forward.
