Dog saves Mother

May 14, 2009 - Mother Dog was Hit By Car so Son Dog Protects & Saves Her Life!! This happened in Bronx, NY - Just before 6:30 a.m. a 9-year-old female yellow lab chow mix ran onto the Major Deegan Expressway and was hit by a car at exit 3. That's when another dog, her son, ran to the rescue, right there on the busy highway. The dog wouldn't let anyone near, barking at traffic and police officers, even as they tried to help.
