STRAY DOG BOARDS THE RIGHT BUS - “An oncoming car in the next lane over swerved violently to avoid this unknown thing. Upon stopping, I noticed a huddled, trembling ball of what used to be someone’s pet. I pulled to the curb, switched the bus off and gingerly approached…”
A homeless Pit Bull mix named Andi has a second chance at life because she ran in front of the right vehicle at the right time. Andi darted into a street in Detroit and in front of a bus. The driver happened to be the founder of the Detroit Bus Company, Andy Didorosi. Mr. Didorosi pulled his bus over and coaxed Andi into the bus. She was in very bad shape due to complications from a pregnancy and other ailments. Andi is now getting treatment with the help of an organization called Dog Aide.

When I approached her, she’d run in the other direction. I jogged to a corner store a few blocks away and bought a can of dog food and tried again; this worked. When presented with the meager meal, she gobbled up what she could and I had a chance to get a better look: This poor dog was starving, shaking and terrified of her surroundings. Wanting more, she followed at my heels back onto the bus.
She still has a frighteningly long road back to good health, but the way is charted. She absolutely loves the peanut butter sandwiches she’s permitted to eat by the vet…Andi has shown us that stray pregnant pups, abandoned recently-born litters and abused mothers all need a very high level of care.
It is estimated that Andi would have probably passed away in 48 to 72 hours without help. Fortunately, she ran in front of the right bus which was driven by a man with compassion for animals. Let’s hope Andi makes a full recovery. Click here to track Andi’s progress on the Detroit Bus Company blog, and click here to learn more about Dog Aide in Detroit.
