Dog-on-Busy-Highway-KHOUvidWhen Rickey Young heard on the radio that there was a dog in the HOV lane on a Houston highway, he rushed over to help.  Though the dog was frightened, Rickey was able to lure her to safety with a sandwich.  She had broken bones and was bleeding, but this hero got her medical attention in time to save her life.

People spotted the yellow Lab just before 8:30 on February 28 in the HOV lane of the Eastex Freeway.

Animal control was called, but construction worker Rickey Young beat them to the scene, saying, “I’m just kind of a softie on that kind of stuff,” he said.
