Britain’s Andy Murray is a champion in many ways, apart from winning the 2013 Wimbledon. The day before was to start his Wimbledon defence against Belgian David Goffin, he saved a dog who had come running into the path of oncoming traffic.
The first Briton to win Wimbledon in 77 years, Murray said he saw a dog running loose on the road and was in danger of being hit by speeding cars, while he was going for practice at the All England Club. He stopped right there and tried to help the dog to be brought back to its owners. He managed to get the dog, who was in a bad shape, panting and drooling heavily, in the back seat of his car after a bit of struggle saying it was very strong. He called up the number on the tag and brought the dog back to its owners.
It also helped that Murray knew the dog’s owner and she too knew his own two dogs, Maggie May and Rusty. They walk together quite often. The owner of the dog was quite thankful that it was brought back safely to her.
Isn’t it heartwarming to see even world famous icons going out of their way to help animals? Andy Murray, however, insisted that he did not put himself at any kind of risk while saving the dog. In the end, the dog is fine and Murray is on the court defending his title.
