Dog that lost leg in train collision adopted by Westfield police officer

A German shepherd that was hit by a train last month will soon get a new home with a police officer.



The dog was rescued by the Westfield Police Department when four officers brought him to All Pets Vet in Branchburg after the accident.



He ended up losing a leg, but the dog, who has been given the name "Coal," has been adopted by a Westfield undercover police officer.



Coal will leave veterinarian care and go to his new home next week.
