NEWARK, Del. (AP) — After police struck two “aggressive” dogs with a car and then fatally shot one of them, the surviving dog has been found and captured.

The News Journal reports the female German shepherd was found Thursday evening in the driveway of a Delaware home.

Police said animal-control and police officers had tried to capture the German shepherd and a pit bull running wild and acting in a threatening manner on May 11, before police struck both dogs with a car. The dogs fled, but police later killed the pit bull.

Office of Animal Welfare spokeswoman Jill Fredel says the German shepherd was found uninjured and has been quarantined for 10 days to ensure it doesn’t have rabies.

Authorities haven’t found the person believed to have abandoned both dogs.
