War veteran makes heroic dog rescue

Sometimes, the right person is truly at the right place at the right time, and what a difference it makes! Recently, war veteran Aaron Schneider was heading home down I-470 when he saw a car hit a little dog. That driver just kept on going, but Aaron acted. He pulled over and ran across three lanes of traffic to put himself between the hurt dog and oncoming traffic. 

According to KCTV5, he said, "Having served in Iraq, you see a lot of loss, which is one of the reasons I was determined to see him make it."

He tried to pick up the hurt dog, but the Beagle was too afraid and in pain, so he called for help. He waited by the Beagle's side for three hours, but no one came. During that time, he gained enough trust to be able to move the dog onto a makeshift stretcher.

Since then, the dog has been named Buster, and has spent a few days in a veterinary intensive care unit. Without help, he would have died from his injuries, but thanks to Mr. Schneider, he is expected to make a full recovery. Furthermore, as soon as he's well enough to leave the vet, he will get a home with his rescuer.
