The Orange County Sheriff's Office reported on their Facebook that Corporal Melissa Davis saved an adorable puppy from being hit by several motorists on a busy road.

Corporal Melissa Davis reportedly saw a number of cars on the 408 Expressway stopped and thought there was a car crash. 

However, upon getting a closer look, she found several motorists trying not to hit a small dog on the busy highway.
