Homeless dog tries to save dog hit by car in Chile
Mon Dec 8, 8:58 pm ET
SANTIAGO, Chile – Chileans have a new hero: an apparently homeless dog that pulled the body of another dog through traffic off a busy highway. A surveillance camera on a Santiago freeway captured images of a dog trotting past speeding cars to pull the lifeless body of the other canine, which had been run over by a vehicle, away from traffic and onto the median strip.

The scene was broadcast by Chilean television stations and then posted on Web sites such as YouTube.com, and hundreds of thousands of people had viewed versions of it by Monday.

Highway crews removed both the dead and live dogs from the median strip of the Vespucio Norte Highway shortly after the Dec. 4 incident. But the rescuer dog ran away.

Authorities say images of the rescue prompted some people to call and offer to adopt the dog, but neither highway workers nor a television crew could find they animal.

I was amazed, actually.  If you watch close, the dog wasn't dragging the wounded one with his teeth, as I expected.  It had hooked its front legs around the wounded and was using just its back legs to pull it off.

That video didn't capture the second half, when the dog got out its cell phone, called the 911, and then hauled out a first aid kit and started doing CPR on the wounded dog.

They showed it on Entertainment Tonight the other day.  Hubby saw it, and he said he'd heard both the dogs had lived.  I hope so.  That dog was saving the other, it was amazing.

I think it was trying to rob the other one. It is Chile.
