Jamie Grabowski had just finished her bus route in Milwaukee on Dec. 18 when she noticed something peculiar around midnight: two dogs, seemingly unattended, darting in and out of the road.
Cognizant of freezing temperatures in the area that night, Grabowski, a Milwaukee County Transit System driver, decided her trip back to the garage would have to wait. Surveillance video shows her bring the vehicle to a stop before calling out to the two dogs, who stayed closely attached to each other as she beckoned them closer.
“Hey, you two! You need to go home right now,” Grabowski is heard saying in the video. “C’mon, c’mon, c’mon inside!”
Grabowski’s plea was successful. She opened the door and quickly guided her late-night passengers – a pit bull and Doberman pinscher – inside. The two pups explored the bus cabin while Grabowski called authorities and explained her predicament.
