    Police Pursuit Turns Into Puppy Chase in San Fernando Valley

    A little dog that bolted out of a car in a police chase led good Samaritans on a zig-zag chase before being rescued. Gordon Tokumatsu reports for the NBC4 News on Monday, Jan. 28, 2019. (Published Monday, Jan. 28, 2019)

    What began as a car chase on streets and freeways in the San Fernando Valley turned into a neighborhood effort to find a Chihuahua that followed the pursuit driver out of her car and hid under another car.

    Khoren Moughalian chased a dog through streets, tried to corral it under cars and eventually safely rescued the pup in a pre-school yard.

    "I help all the dogs," he told NBC4 Photographer Joel Cooke, who quickly caught up to the hero after scrambling to help try to rescue the dog under a car and filmed the whole thing on camera.

    Moughalian didn't know the dog was the one that got out of a car in a pursuit moments earlier.
