It was a normal day for the American woman Debbie Allen , who was traveling in her car on a busy interstate highway, when she abruptly observed that several drivers began to slow down for no apparent reason.
However, a few seconds later he understood what was happening: a German shepherd had escaped from home and, somewhat disoriented, wound up in the middle of the road . Unfortunately, a person couldn’t see him and ran over him, before which he merely fled.
Clearly, Debbie was not going to leave the unfortunate puppy in such peril, so she did not hesitate for a second to stop her vehicle to go to assist him. “I saw a dog in the middle of the road and it was visibly limping so I knew it had been driven over,” she told WXYZ
Later, the woman indicated that she was going to meet a client at work that day, but that “God had other arrangements for her.” When she got out and attempted to walk towards the dog, all the vehicles stopped, but the frightened little animal ran away.
Even so, he did not give up and pursued him until he was able to take him and leave him protected on the side of the track . Fortunately, the Michigan State Police arrived soon after to assist with the case . “I sat down with the dog, told him he was safe and asked him to look at me because he was searching for an escape route and I said ‘ no, no, look at me, you’re safe,’ ” he said.
From what Allen saw, the German Shepherd was well fed, clean and behaved very politely, despite his anxiety at the time, so it was evident that he had recently left the care of his owners.
The Society for the Protection of Animals also arrived at the scene , who were able to take him away safely and treat his injuries. Unfortunately, he was not microchipped, so the search for his family is a bit more complicated, but they won’t give up. They have to gather them.
“I’m not a hero, just a human being,” Debbie concluded.
