When This Bus Driver Saw Stray Dogs Shivering In The Storm, He Stopped To Do An Amazing Thing

A week ago Argentina’s capital Buenos Aires was hit by a severe thunderstorm when one local bus driver saw two frightened pooches in the rain outside and stopped to help. He carried the shivering doggies aboard a bus and offered them a free ride. Stella Maris San Martín, who became a witness to this beautiful act of kindess, told Minuto Uno: “He never tried to put them off. He spoke to them like they were his own.” The woman also took a picture where we see one of the dogs resting at the driver’s feet.

The driver has become a hero, but his identity remains a mystery. Even though pets are normally not allowed on the buses, the bus drivers’s authorities in Buenos Aires have praised his actions too, calling it a show of solidarity.
