While driving to get his car checked over, user ‘Welshdrive’ came across a large dog in the middle of the road. It is not recommended to approach an unfamiliar dog, but the location and size of the dog meant it was only a matter of time before it got hit, possibly injuring people and killing the dog.
So, the kind man did the only thing he could do at this point – he stopped his car in the middle of the road to force traffic to slow down, while he took care of the dog that was obviously distressed.
“What are you doin’, doggy? What are you doin’?” the man can be heard saying on the dash cam footage. The dog sees the car stopping in the road and his demeanor changes, looking to his left and right for an opportunity to get away, should this human turn out to be hostile.
When the car door opens, the dog tries to run away, scared out of its mind, but sensing kindness in the man’s voice made him stop in its tracks. Instead of running away, the pup crawled towards the human with his tail wagging. It even threw itself on its back, asking for belly scratches!
Eventually it ran up to the owner’s home 800 yards away, and all’s well that ends well. Treat animals as you would treat humans, they have every right to live and be treated well. If you see a dog running loose on the road don’t ignore it, be the person who saves it!
