"It's a Christmas miracle:" Cedar Falls man saves owner's dog off highway

Posted: Updated:

An eastern Iowa man is thankful for the stranger who saved his dog off the highway.

James Young, of Cedar Falls, was driving on Highway 218 when he saw an Axel Terrier in the middle of the road. Right as he pulled over, a car hit the dog.

Young grabbed the dog, carried her to safety and then called for help.

"If he wouldn't have saved her, then she would have been dead, and probably more cars would have hit her. It's a Christmas miracle I think, she's probably the best Christmas present we could ever have back," Shannon Olsson said, the owner of the dog, named Bailey.

Bailey had been missing for five days. Someone broke into Olsson's home, and she ran out the back door.

Olsson says Bailey has a few bruises, but no broken bones.
