A lucky shaggy pup was rescued on Monday afternoon as he tried to hide in the median of a busy highway in Portland, Oregon. Fortunately two women spotted the stray dog along I-205.
According to Fox News, Heather March and Heather Parchem stopped to help along with police officers.
“We just lassoed him and got him into my truck and, 50-50, we turned around and drove back…,” Parchem stated.
The two women own a grooming business and noticed the dog had sticks all over his face. They think he had been thrown out of a vehicle and rolled.
The veterinarian estimates the dog, now dubbed Freeway, is approximately five-years-old, suffered some minor injuries, but is expected to make a full recovery. He is currently being fostered by his rescuers who ultimately want to find the perfect home for him if his owner doesn’t show up. Freeway was not wearing a collar and has no microchip.
Freeway has been reported to have been “found” to Multnomah County Animal Shelter in case his family shows up.
“Settling in for his second night now. He has gone potty (which we were worried about). So that’s a huge deal! He is starting to walk a bit better with pain meds, too. He is in love with the kids and the feeling is mutual. He’s a brave little man and we are super proud of him!”
