Officer Joseph Puglia has proved himself to be a true hero after he risked his own life to save a dog in need.
After getting lost on a busy freeway and being hit by a car,a small pup found himself in serious jeopardy. Fortunately, Officer Puglia observed what occurred and took swift action.
Despite the serious danger to life and limb, Puglia stopped his car and rushed out onto Interstate 272 in order to save the hurt pup.
At first, Puglia wasn’t sure if the pup had survived the impact,but then he drew a breath of relief when he saw that the pup was still breathing.
He wrapped the dog in an emergency blanket and then carried it back to his car.
The pup has been nicknamed “Lucky” and it’s certainly a fitting name; while some people devalue animal lives and don’t think they are as important as human lives, there are also people like Officer Puglia in the world who value all lives – big and small, human and non-human, and luckily,Puglia happened to be at the right place at the right time.
Puglia saved this little pup’s life, and we’re sure that Lucky is forever grateful to him.
