Dog Stops Traffic To Save Mother
May 15 | 7 Comments
A lot of you probably think that all New York City dogs are obnoxious, self absorbed and bark funny. To that all I can say is stop getting all your news from Cat Fancy magazine. NYC pups are no different than the ones in Kansas, Alabama or Hawaii. Well the ones in Hawaii are a bit happier.
Look no further than Husky, the son of a yellow lab-mix named Chile, and his heroic efforts to save his mother this morning.
The examiner.com has all the details.
The early Thursday morning rush hour on the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx was the setting of a dramatic and heartwarming scene as a German shepherd-mix protected its fallen mother who was struck by a car.
Around 6:30 a.m., May 14, a nine year old female yellow lab-mix, Chile, ran onto the Major Deegan Expressway and was hit by a car at exit 3. Her son Husky, ran to the rescue on the crowded highway. The dog ran around her body, protecting his injured mother by barking at traffic and police officers, even as they attempted to offer assistance.
When police managed to rescue Chile, Husky ran home through traffic, dodging vehicles as police tried to catch it.
Chile suffered a broken left leg. She had no ID at the time of the accident, but her owner saw the drama on TV, went to the vet center, and took her to an animal hospital where she will undergo surgery.
The owner told animal control that the other dog, who he also owns, is home now.
If I ever had a pup of my own, I would hope he/she would act as heroically as Husky. If not, at least I’d still have somedog to fetch my Pupperoni’s for me.
Here’s a video report.
