BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

A dog that escaped from a Portland veterinary clinic Wednesday night was found after being struck by car in Beaverton, according to Multnomah County Animal Services.

About 2 a.m. Friday, a Beaverton EMT picked up and returned Ross, a black and white pit bull, to the Tanasbourne Veterinary Emergency clinic about a mile away from where Ross escaped, according animal services.

According to the release, the EMT reported that the dog had previously been struck by a vehicle on Highway 217.

The pit bull did suffer a dislocated hip.  He’s bruised and scraped, but alive, according to Nicole Cherry, Animal Services Officer.

Ross was outside for a walk Wednesday night at the Veterinary Surgical Center of Portland where he was preparing to have hernia surgery, when he slipped his leash and took off running.

Animal services and clinic staff spent 24 hours passing out 1,000 fliers and scouring the neighborhood in search of the Pitt Bull, and more than 900 people shared social media posts about him.

After Ross was found, the Tanasbourne Veterinary staff had seen the Facebook posts, and notified the nearby surgical center.

Ross will remain at the surgical center for observation until his hip heals. Once recovered he will undergo his original surgery, then return to Animal Services.

After that, Ross will be eligible for adoption.
