Woman Risks Her Life Rescuing Injured Dog on Dangerous Highway (Video)

This woman crosses a four-lane highway to rescue an injured dog that was hit by car when he tried to crawl to the shoulder for safety. He sat, cowering by the divider until she was able to use a belt as a makeshift leash to lead him to safety. She drove him to a nearby vet after she carefully coaxed him away from the road.

I wish the video were available. A big thank you to the rescuer and hope the dog is healing and found a new home.

But I hope the doggy´s healthy and at home again, and if someone had dumped him, that he´s found a loving home in the meantime!

I miei ringraziamenti a questa grande donna e grande disgusto nei confronti della persona che ha abbandonato questo cane.

The World need people like her so I hope she will be careful out there! This could have gone really bad as the drivers don't even slow down when they see the dog and her, IF they did see them at all. If she haven't helped and the dog went out in the traffic this had been a huge serial accident!
To the driver who hit the dog, I hope someone have taken the plate number and called the police for hit and run...
The rest on that road just driving on, I have no Words to put in print...

fantastic idea.

There's always the option of canned beans. They're already cooked! Just remember to rinse them well …
