Veterinary surgeon Ovidiu Rosu of Bucharest, Romania, noticed the dog, which appeared to be marooned in the middle of a busy freeway.
"She must've been abandoned right on the side of the motorway,” he explained. “And when trying to cross it, she must've gotten too scared to make it to the other side.”
In dramatic footage shared by Caters News, Rosu could be seen crossing into the center median and attempting to pull the stray dog out of harm’s way as cars zoomed past them.
"The hardest part was to gain her trust as I approached her, the last thing I wanted was for her to get scared and run in front of traffic,” he explained. “Luckily, I managed to approach her quite easily. She really is a lovely dog.”

And while they've found many potential adopters for the pup, Rosu said, “I will be sad to see her go.”
