California Commuters Managed to Work Together to Create a Mobile Fence to Try to Corral a Dog Running Down the Highway

Downey, Calif. - California commuters joined forces in the pursuit of a runaway dog.

The dog was running down the highway during rush hour, but thanks to some fancy maneuvering, she was kept safe. Strangers risked their own lives during rush hour on the freeway.

"Just to save the dog, cause I didn't want her to get hurt," said Andie Valerio, who got out of her car to help the dog.

Traffic slowed as drivers managed to work together to create a mobile fence to try to corral the dog.

A motorcyclist then took the lead to herd the dog off the road, and Valerio stepped in.

"I turned on my hazards on and made sure she was going towards the shoulder," she said.

Other cares did the same, and Valerio got out of the car and pursued the dog up an embankment and headed towards home.

"She is super sweet. I was sitting with her the whole time and she just licked me and she was just sitting there on the floor, calm, she was really sweet," she said.

The dog had a collar but no tag. She was turned over to the local animal shelter, which will assist in locating the owner or someone to adopt her.
