Dog Falls Out of Pickup Truck, Spends 5 Weeks on Freeway Median Waiting for Owner to Return

The German shepherd, nicknamed "Freeway Frida," was first reported to police on April 10, when someone apparently saw her jump or fall out of a pickup truck on Highway 99, said Officer Siliva Coelho with the Galt Police Department.

"For the past five weeks, we've gotten calls every other day from people reporting an injured dog on the median," Coelho told ABC News today. "But every time we went out there, we couldn't see or find her. She was like a ghost dog."
