Most rules are made for a reason. It’s best to always do what you’re supposed to do to avoid trouble. However, many dog lovers agree that when a dog is in danger, it is an acceptable time to break the rules. That’s exactly how bus drivers feel on their daily routes.
As he was driving a bus in Buenos Aires, Argentina, a dangerous thunderstorm struck. The bus company has a strict no-dog policy, but when the bus driver saw two stray dogs in need of help, he didn’t hesitate to ignore clear expectations.
When it started to rain, most people rushed to the nearest building to take shelter. Unfortunately, dogs don’t have the same luxury, especially if they’re homeless. So, as the storm unfolded, two stray dogs were trapped in the rain.
The bus driver saw the two puppies shivering, their fur soaked through. He knows the rules well, but he can’t say no to their sad puppy eyes. So, the well-meaning bus driver stopped just for the dogs. He got off the bus and picked up the dogs, and took them to his vehicle. For the first time, two stray dogs are safe and sound.
The man knew his job was at stake, but he continued to drive with the two furry passengers. Everyone on the bus was in awe of his kindness. Therefore, many people took pictures and shared them on social media. Unfortunately, this led to the bus company finding the bus driver’s infraction.
Unsurprisingly, the bus driver’s employer quickly found out. After careful consideration, they decided not to be penalized for it. They explained that while animals were not allowed on the bus, he did the right thing at the time. In fact, they were very supportive and glad he helped the dogs.
Although the identity of the bus driver has never been revealed, he has received so many well-meaning comments on social media. He proved that anyone can be a hero, all you have to do is follow your heart and do what is right.
As for the dogs, it’s unclear where they are. They sat so peacefully as they rode the bus and looked grateful for the good man’s act. They likely found a loving family shortly after the photos were shared. After all, who wouldn’t want to adopt these adorable puppies?
