LOS ANGELES A loyal Labrador retriever named Maggie, who was videotaped as she guarded the body of a yellow Lab hit and killed by a car in Southern California, was reunited with her family Monday.
A good Samaritan saw what was happening on Hacienda Boulevard in La Puente last Wednesday, called officers, put traffic cones around the dogs and took the video that touched hearts across the country as it made its way around the Internet.

Good to know.
Poor other pooch though. I know people can`t always stop and such, but it sometimes seems that some people intentionally hit animals like it`s some sort of game.
Yes, you're right. There are sick individuals out there who do that sort of thing and they don't know that what they are doing is a mental illness.
Good thing a good Samaritan got to the dog before a cop could shoot it.
I had heard on the news that the person who took the video adopted the black lab and named her Grace. The dogs had no tags so they didn't know who they belonged to. I am sorry to hear that the orginal owners got her back as obviously they let the dogs run.
I'm sure it doesn't apply in this incident, but I told my step-daughter and will instruct my son not to take extreme measures to avoid hitting an animal too small to wreck their car. So, brake in a straight line but don't swerve or lose control of the car. No sense in a car load of humans ending up in a ditch or wrapped around a tree.
Note that the employees at the pound knew the family, but spayed the dog without asking for permisson to devalue private property.
Just another ‘Unfunded Mandaate”, including extortion of money to support further such acts - “Pay us or youse don’t nevvuh da dog back”.
Yup I noticed they spayed her. Just awful now that family cannot reproduce her.
