Last week, on a frigid night in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, bus driver Jamie Grabowski was driving back to the station at the end of her shift when something on the roadside caught her eye.
There, shivering and unattended, were two lost, frightened dogs in the freezing cold.
Grabowski knew she had to stop.
What happened next is a lesson on love and compassion — but for the pup’s worried family, who’d been out all night in a desperate search for their missing dogs, it must have felt a lot like Christmas miracle.
The kindhearted bus driver went above and beyond to make sure they were reunited.
Here’s a video from the Milwaukee County Transit System showing how this happy holiday story all played out:
“It turns out that the dogs had somehow gotten out of their family’s yard two-and-a-half miles away from where Jamie found them,” transit officials wrote. “Jamie, an avid animal lover who jokes that she’s a ‘dog whisperer,’ said she is happy she was in the right place at the right time to help the two ‘very good boys.'”
Thanks to her, the dogs were safely returned to their family — just in time for Christmas.
