A great outpouring of solidarity spontaneously developed among the users of a busy Texas highway, and helped save a dog in great danger.
In November 2019, Toby Tinelli was driving his car with his wife on a freeway in Houston , Texas, when the couple noticed a panicking dog on that expressway. The animal was terrified and ran without knowing where it was going. His leash was still attached to his collar .
Motorists then began to slow down and cluster around the quadruped to form a sort of safety cordon , activating their hazard lights to warn other road users.
Toby Tinelli got ahead of them and stopped in front of the quadruped to prevent him from going any further. Other drivers left their vehicles and started running behind the dog in an attempt to catch it.
“ It was an incredible moment! All the cars on the highway stopped to help. People were jumping out of their cars and running after the bitch, ” Toby Tinelli tells The Dodo . Because yes, it turned out to be a female . She was eventually caught up and saved .

Here’s the owner with his baby again. Poor guy was sprinting on the feeder (after a car wreck) to catch this pup. The best part was seeing them hug when he finally got him back. You can see the dogs bloody feet here too. pic.twitter.com/QH16IWQAkI
