On Tuesday afternoon, Gerry O’Donnell welcomed an unlikely passenger onto her Halifax Transit No. 10 bus.
At a bus stop, the bus driver saw a passenger holding onto a 2-year-old husky which, moments earlier, had been dodging cars on a busy road. The passenger told O’Donnell that animal control was on its way.
“The passenger told me that the dog almost got hit by two cars and of course my heart sank,” O’Donnell, who owns two dogs, told the Chronicle Herald. “Huskies are runners and I knew she had probably made it out of her yard.”
The passenger needed to get to Halifax — and O’Donnell was certain animal control wouldn’t be there for a while — so O’Donnell “broke the golden rules” and allowed the husky, named Keiko, onto her bus.
“Keiko was as good as gold,” she said. “She just has a beautiful temperament.”
“I knew she was well taken care of and well loved and I just wanted her to get back home.”Read More »from Halifax bus driver helps wandering husky find her way home
