Bus driver Amos Paul Mak was on one of his London routes when he saw two men getting on with a dog around 9.30pm. Shortly after, the pair got off, leaving their scared dog on the bus.

“The dog then stayed so I stopped the bus for five minutes and asked on the tannoy if anyone owned the dog, but nobody came forward,” Mak told the Daily Mail. The man then finished his route and came to comfort the Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix who was still on the bus and couldn’t stop trembling.

“I could tell the dog was starting to become more and more nervous – it was shaking as I was stroking it. But it seemed like it was quite switched on and it seemed like a smart dog. I offered to take the dog home, but I wasn’t able to because if it had bitten me, I could have sued the company.” The dog “didn’t want to be moved,” so he stayed on the bus where he was given food and cared for during the night until the dog warden arrived.

UPDATE: the dog was reunited with his family TODAY. He disappeared during a walk last Thursday (he was probably stolen by the two men who later abandoned him on a bus). The 4-year-old dog’s actual name is Boston and he belongs to Paulina Rybak who couldn’t be happier to see him again: “I was so happy I started crying, “Rybak told Standard. “I thought we would never see him again.”
