SHADYSIDE (KDKA) – A local woman is thanking the Good Samaritans who jumped into action to save her dog when it jumped out of her car and ran near a busy intersection.

Barbara Brockett said her miniature dachshund, Tanor, jumped from her car in Shadyside.

A man on a bicycle stopped traffic on Baum Boulevard so the dog wouldn’t be hit.

Then, a woman on South Aiken Avenue blocked the road with her car while her two kids chased the dog into a small park.

A little boy managed to scoop up Tanor and handed her to Brockett.

“Thank you so much. She is the joy of my life to be greeted by her every day and to think I could have lost her that day without your help. Just thank you very much. It means so much to me,” Brockett said.

Brockett said she never had a chance to thank the people in person, but she believes it’s a good example of how Pittsburghers step in to help one another.
