Lucky Moss was found at the top of the Interstate 75 Rouge bridge in June.

A dog has a new home after being rescued in June from an Interstate 75 work zone in Detroit. 

Mike Moss, a CA Hull labor foreman, arrived at work on the I-75 Rouge bridge to find a dog covered in matted hair in the safe-span. 

"He walked down the bridge deck, dark out at night, he fell off the concrete into there," Moss said in a video from the Michigan Department of Transportation. "He limped a little bit, so I thought maybe he was hurt, but his hair was so matted around his paw that he couldn't hardly step on it."

Moss rescued the dog, put him in the back of his truck and named him Lucky. 

Moss said he found Lucky the same day his father had to euthanize his dog, who Moss found 17 years ago at Michigan Avenue and Clark in Detroit. Despite not wanting another dog, his father, Wayne Moss, came to pick up Lucky and took him to the Michigan Humane Society to get registered. 

After a few surgeries, Wayne Moss fell in love with Lucky and never left his side.

Watch how it changed his life in the video below.
