A dog was rescued in West San Antonio after a woman pulled over and saved him from the freezing temperatures outside, using tortillas to lure him into her car.
Kristin Salinas had gone out to buy tortillas on Thursday when she saw the dog in the cold. She pulled her car over and used the tortillas themselves to try to get the dog inside her car. Video shows her trying several times to get the dog inside the car, but he didn’t want to go.
It took Salinas 30 minutes to safely wrangle him into her car. When asked why she helped the dog, she said she felt bad and sometimes helps stray animals when she sees them on the street.
“Dogs, they don’t know what’s going on; cats, pets, they don’t know what’s going on. So, we try to help them out – one dog at a time. I’m hoping the next person will stop, too, and help the different strays,” said Kristin Salinas.
Salinas said she will bring him home and will try take him to a shelter to get healthy and adopted. “I still have tortillas for my mom and I got him in the car it’s warm, so yeah definitely worth it,” she said.
