The Oregonian reported that Dog Services manager Diana Hallmark said the animal was initially put up for adoption after his owner could not be found and a vet pronounced him healthy. However, she said he tried several times to bite shelter employees. Hallmark said shelter officials decided it was not safe to place him in a home.
After emergency responders helped drivers and cleared damaged vehicles in the Feb. 21 crash near the Portland suburb of Clackamas, state troopers, a Portland police officer and firefighters captured the dog.
Hallmark said it appeared the dog was not well socialized or well trained.
