A local search and rescue K9 is on the road to recovery after falling victim to a brutal hit and run last week.
NBC 15 sat down with K9 Nero's owner who watched it all happen.
"It was shocking honestly. I kind of didn't believe it even happened,” Firefighter Ross Braswell said, adding, “It's like one of those things where you see it happen and your like, no." Braswell can't believe his 3-year-old Belgian Malinois, trained since birth to safe lives as an urban search and rescue dog, was suddenly in need of life saving treatment himself.

Russellville Fire Chief Joe Mansell said no matter what the temperature or conditions outside, when a fire call comes in, fire trucks have to roll.
“We can’t wait on warmer temperatures, we have to go, and usually a lot of our runs are in colder temperatures,” Mansell said.
With predications of snow, below freezing temperatures and negative wind chill temperatures, fire departments and other emergency personnel are preparing for what could be.
“It’s not so much getting to a call, but what happens after you get there,” said Florence Fire Chief Jeff Perkins.
Firefighters from Salem and Smiths Station worked together Monday to the douse flames that engulfed a two-story house at 417 Lee Road 735 in the Salem community.
Rescuers with the Salem Volunteer Fire Department received a call about the fire around 11:30 a.m., said senior firefighter Rick Fitzgerald. Shortly after arriving on the scene, by which time flames had enveloped the home, Salem responders contacted Smith Station Fire & Rescue for backup.
“The upstairs and downstairs were just fully involved,” Fitzgerald said.
