    Smart Dog Walks To Hospital After Hit By Car

    (CBS) BELLFLOWER, Calif. An injured 6-year-old German shepherd mix walked himself into a hospital emergency room after apparently being struck by a car, according to animal control officials.

    Buddy the dog limped into emergency at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Bellflower Wednesday and laid down in the waiting area at about 1 p.m., security officer Daniel Carrillo told the Whittier Daily News.

    Hospital officials called the Southeast Area Animal Control Authority in Downey, and agency officials picked up Buddy and brought him to the shelter for treatment of a fractured leg, Capt. Aaron Reyes, SEAACA's director of operations.

    "We don't know where he got hit by a car, but we're happy he chose the right place to get help," Reyes said.

    Through an identifying microchip implanted in Buddy's skin, SEAACA officials were able to locate his owner, who adopted him from the animal shelter about five years ago, Reyes told the newspaper.

    Fabian Ortega, Buddy's owner, owns a construction equipment rental business about a block from the hospital, according to the paper.

    Ortega said he had been scouring the area for his dog since he ran away about two weeks ago from the yard of the business while the fence was being repaired.

    he's a real cutey too; his eyes are like humans; i've seen a couple dogs like that where you just know by looking at their face and expression how smart they are and often time a little disapointed by their station in life. Its sad when you see a dog who's smarter than their owner.

    Dog didn't seem real happy to see his owner....

    What a cutie (the dog not the owner)... I feel bad for the dog being a "watch dog".

    i'm surprised the dog didn't die in the waiting room like so many other kaiser patients. he must've had good insurance!

    Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.

    Aaaw, poor cutie!

    I've seen dogs mimic human behaviour before (looking both ways before they cross the road, even using buses), but this takes the cake.
