ARLINGTON, Texas (KDAF) -

After rescuing the same pit bull for a second time, Arlington police Sgt. Gary Carter has decided to adopt the dog.

"This dog keeps crossing my path so it must be meant to be," Carter said.

The officer first rescued Jeffrey a few weeks ago when he found what some people warned was a "vicious" pit bull. Carter found the dog to be friendly and photos of the two soon went viral. But after reuniting Jeffrey with this owner, the dog got out again and was taken to Animal Services.

Carter decided to adopt the dog so he would not be euthanized, and he's changing Jeffrey's name to Chance, in recognition of his second chance in life.
