Los Angeles -  A police dog, called 'Puskas', was the star of an epic police chase, as the crime-fighting pooch caught a car thief that had fled on foot. 

Televised police chase

The BBC News  reported that the chase started after a man, wanted for previously assaulting a police officer, had been pulled over for a traffic offence. Police report he was driving a stolen vehicle at the time.

He then fled, and was seen speeding along an LA highway, skipping traffic lights and even crashing into another vehicle.

The carjacker then managed to highjack another vehicle before running into a business park and fleeing on foot. This was when Puskas came into his own and managed to stop the carjacker.

Nbcla.com reported that the dog lost some of its teeth and required surgery after tracking down the carjacker.
