Scared Pooch Is Rescued From The Middle Of Busy Motorway
Fear is such a terrible feeling; some situations can even leave you paralyzed. One unfortunate little soul had that same experience, after it was abandoned on a busy highway in Bucharest, the capital of Romania.
Things could have ended terribly for the puppy, if it weren't for one brave soul that found himself on that same spot that day. Veterinary surgeon Ovidiu Rosu was driving on that same highway when he noticed the frightened pup hiding under the railing between the lanes. The professional pulled up on the lip of the road and and knew he had to calculate his next move to the detail, if he wanted to successfully rescue the poor animal.
Ovidiu crossed the busy road and approached the tiny dog in a crouch, making sure not to scare him further. You can notice immediately that he gains the puppy's trust, because the pup starts crawling slowly towards him. A few loving strokes later and Ovidiu has won the puppy over, so he picks him up by the neck and cradles him tightly, so that it wouldn't wiggle away and back into oncoming traffic.
The whole endeavor was caught on tape by Ovidiu companion and we couldn't be more happy about it. The pooch has found a new loving home in the hands of someone who will take much, much better care for him! First proof that dogs are smart is that they always recognize our behavior, especially when we are sad or worried. If you think that emotions are not connected with intelligence, you should probably think again! Dogs are the most loyal animals on earth – utterly faithful to their dog-ma and paw.
When it comes to people saving animals, there is another heroic video dealing with the same topic but this time a police officer plays the main role. What a perfect example of the countless times our brave police officers save lives! This sweet dog is the loyal companion to a truck driver. He obviously loves his dog and cares for his safety because he was letting the dog get some fresh air. The thought of how horribly wrong this series of events could have gone gives us chills down our spine. Had that driver gotten up to a speed higher than the dog could keep up with, it would have been a tragic situation. This, however, was not the case.
In this situation, this police officer who can also be described as a hero, acted quickly to stop the driver before the situation turned grave. The sweet little dog was trotting along, trying to keep up with the driver who had leashed him to the back of his truck. We can imagine what that dog was thinking. We are sure he was beyond happy to see the police officer stop the truck. We are sure the police department in Yavapai, Arizona is very proud to have their officer recognized for such an easy, but a life-saving decision.
