It's an ugly day today in Boston, with sleet and rain, but that didn't keep Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Officer Murawski-Dupont from hopping on a bicycle, and rushing to the rescue of a dog who had been spotted wandering on the commuter train tracks in Dorchester, reports the Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARLB) on their Facebook page.
Officer Murawski-Dupont was asked for her help by a concerned citizen this morning, when the dog - a Pit Bull mix now called Rudolph - was seen on the tracks. The MBTA halted all operations on the line while the officer coaxed the dog into safety.
"Rudolph had a very friendly disposition and made fast friends with Officer Murawski-Dupont, whose actions probably saved his life," says the MBTA's website.
Rudolph is now safe at ARLB's shelter. If anyone recognizes Rudolph, please, call the Transit Police Special Crimes Unit at 617-222-1170, text them anonymously at 873873, or call ARLB at 617-426-9170.
