Fort Worth, Texas, officers were driving down the interstate on Tuesday when they came across a small dog.
Officers Allen Speed and Paul Garcia immediately sprang into action, hitting the brakes and retrieving the dog from the middle of the highway.
Their actions can be seen in video footage from the police car dash cam.
“They stopped, set up a temporary road block and rescued the little girl,” the Fort Worth Police Department said in a statement. “Pay attention to the applause and honking at the end of the video.”
To date, the video has been viewed over 149,000 times. Many of the viewers have responded positively.
“Proves that most police officers do have hearts!” one user wrote.
The dog is now up for adoption at the Humane Society.
