This story is an amazing example of the bond between animals and thankfully has a happy ending. When Chile, the yellow lab mix, was hit on the Deegan Expressway, her son, Husky, came to her rescue. He fended off traffic keeping her from being struck again. When police and animal control arrived, Husky held his ground and made sure no one messed with his mom. After several attempts, Chile was loaded into a vehicle. Police then herded Husky down an off-ramp and he was eventually reunited with his owner. Chile is being treated for a broken leg and is expected to be fine.
It’s certainly reminiscent of that remarkable dog that tried to rescue an injured dog on a Chilean freeway by dragging it to the shoulder.
