Helped a little dog out today

On my drive home today, I passed a dog running along side of a busy and high speed road. As soon as I passed, the pup ran out into the street causing several cars to quickly brake and swerve to keep from hitting it. Down the road I speed to turn around and go back after it, all along praying no one would hit it. I was pretty sure I knew where it lived.
Thankfully I made it back and dashed out of the truck to get it out of the road. She was scared and ran from me at first. I talked to her and eventually she laid down in the grass and rolled over for me to rub her tummy.
Amazingly, she had a collar with a number and contact address. I called and got a voice mail. I let the man know I had her and I couldn't take her home with my shar pei, they would not have been very happy. Luckily, the owner called back pretty quick and I delivered her back home.
Made me feel good to be able to see her home safely. Hopefully she won't get out again. The owner offered to give some money and I told him no, no, I would just hope someone would do the same for one of my pups.

  1. I've had a few similar experiences. It's always a good feeling when you can get a dog back to its owner.
