Good Samaritan rescues dog on highway in Mexico (VIDEO)

Good Samaritan rescues dog on busy highway in Mexico

This video shows the dog injured on the highway in Mexico City, and a kind man rescuing the dog. The man is saying, "He is alive, let's take him to the veterinary ... That's good... Let's see if he can make it.....". (Warning: this may be distressing for some to watch, but there is no blood and the dog is now recovering)

Below is the followup video to the rescue. The man explains that the dog has been at the vet for a week, he lost an eye and has a spinal injury and will need more treatment. The great news is that he will recover in a month! The vet has said that the dog won't be able to walk, but watch what happens when this man opens up the crate door.... the dog walks out on his own!!! At the end of the video, the man says that humans are responsible for what happened to this dog and asks people to help and adopt this dog. But until this dog finds the perfect forever home, he's going to stay with this man, so he can be socialized with other dogs and be taken care of.

Some people wonder why there is video of the rescue - many think that he may have passed the dog a first time, saw him, turned around and picked him up. This is what many people have done when dogs have been rescued on busy highways.


Update Aug. 7, 2012: Looks like a lucky dog is feeling much better! The man who saved this dog is named Rodrigo, but that is all I know right now. I'll update again if/when there is more information.

If only all people could be this way, poor dogs in third world countries are treated so sadly, i'd like to have more information on this man and what he does, from the looks of it he seems to be saving dogs as you can hear others in the background, i'd like to donate to his cause
God bless him, he's a wonderful wonderful person :)
Wonderful story! I agree with everyone else, God bless this man!
God bless you! You truly are an angel!!!!
What a wonderful man this guy is! I hope he gets to keep the dog. I don't think I could ever part with the little guy after this rescue. I wish more people were like him!
God bless this man. What a kind heart he has, most people would not stop.
So grateful to the man who saved this dog instead of just ignoring it as he passed it on the road. The dog looks very receptive and thankful for his friend to take care of him. God bless him for his actions and for the dogs recovery. I hope the dog continues on the mend and finds a wonderful forever home. <3
Very touching story. Although, I couldn't understand what was said in the video, just the images themselves and what I read, put a smile on my face. I love happy endings :)
The dog had his Guardian Angel with him that day. The man came buy just at the right moment to save the dog. Poor woofies could have been hit and run over again if this man wasn't where he was supposed to be. Things happen for a reason. :)
Thank you, God for putting this awesome man on earth to save this poor dog! He's a true hero. I wish there are more people like him! C'mon, people... please have a heart for those pets/animals!
I can only see one of the videos now :(
Laine, I think this cutie is in Mexico city.
Super wat deze man gedaan heeft!!!!!! Diep respect !!!
So how do I get in line to adopt this dog?
There are still some beautiful people in the world.....this man is one of them:)
If only everyone treated animals like this guy........may you be blessed with good fortune for saving the less fortunate.
How do we help? Do you have a paypal account? Como podemos ayudar con la cuenta del doctor? Tiene cuenta con paypal?
I pray, after all this, the little doggie gets a wonderful home. It's clear he loves the guy who saved him. Maybe he'll be able to stay with him. I hope I'll never be in the position but, if I hit a dog or cat, I would NEVER leave it to die a slow, horrible death. Some people not only do not have a heart but their soul is very dead.
The tears in this guys eyes after he rescued...he KNEW the dog wanted help..the dog crawled over to the car...honestly...I had tears too..I LOVE this man..I really do!!
