Lost dogs reunited with family for the holidays thanks to bus driver

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.

Concerned about the pair either ғʀᴇᴇᴢɪɴɢ in the cold or getting ʜɪᴛ by a car, she stopped her bus and called out to them.

” Hey, you two! You need to go home right now,” Jamie yells. “C’mon, c’mon inside!”

She then opened the front door and let the canines onto the bus. The dogs seemed friendly enough and jumped on the bus while wagging their tails. After that, she contacted MCTS dispatchers to notify them about her unusual situation.

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. And thanks to Jamie, the dogs were safely returned to their family just in time for New Year.

“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.”

Jamie joked a bit when she said that she is actually a dog whisperer, but in any case, she is very happy that she managed to bring the two little naughty boys back home to her family. The family of course held a meeting with Jamie to thank her nicely for this beautiful act.
