Romanian Stray Dog Saves Injured Cyclist Stranded In The Mountains

Up until recently, this sweet stray dog didn’t have a friend to call his own, his daily struggle as a homeless pup unseen by the world.

But now he’s being hailed a hero — and for a very good reason.

On Monday, a man cycling through the mountains of western Romania broke his collarbone after falling off his bike. Unable to continue due to the injury, the man was stranded on the trail as night began setting in, putting him at risk of exposure in the chilly alpine air.

Fortunately, however, he found an unlikely friend to keep him safe.


Upon arriving to assist the cyclist, first responders from the county of Caras Severin discovered that someone had already beat them to it.

“When the cyclist fell and remained laying on the road, a dog came from the woods and laid besides the victim as to warm him with its body,” officials said, as translated by Romania-Insider. “When we arrived, the dog didn’t leave his side and remained there until the ambulance arrived.”
