Bus driver sees loose dog in the street, almost getting hit by cars — makes an unplanned stop to save the day

I’m always inspired by everyday people going out of their way to help animals in need. These kind people give these animals much-needed safety and protection and help them get back home.

That was the recent case when one bus driver went the extra mile to save a dog who was in the middle of the road on a rainy day.

Stephany K. a driver, was on her route on a rainy Monday, when suddenly she saw a dog in front of her bus.

The loose dog had been running in the street, narrowly avoiding being hit by multiple cars.

Realizing the dog was in serious danger, Stephany decided to step up to help by making an unplanned stop on the route.

She opened up the bus doors and called for the dog, guiding it inside. The dog, happy to be out of the rain and out of traffic, explored the bus and greeted passengers.

Meanwhile, Stephany called dispatchers for help. She let the dog sit in the driver’s seat while they waited for help to arrive.

After that, a route supervisor came to pick up the dog, and brought it to the Milwaukee Police Department, hopefully to reunite it with its family.

Stephany’s company praised her for doing the right thing to help the dog and possibly save its life.

“Thank you, Stephany, for your compassion and dedication to MCTS Excellence,” the Milwaukee County Transit System wrote on Facebook.

It seems like Milwaukee’s bus operators are just natural heroes: back in March, another driver made the news after picking up a toddler who was walking around on a very cold day on the “most dangerous road in Milwaukee.”
