Panda and Lucy had been on the tracks for two days after a train hit her. After Denis had arrived, it was clear that another train was rapidly racing down the tracks towards the dogs. Then,something truly amazing happened.
Denis recalled in his post: “Bothanimals lowered their heads and pressed them to the ground as the train passed.”
Panda guided Lucy down as low as she could go to avoid getting injured again. If you look closely, you can see the two dogs huddled for safety beneath the moving train. The act of utter bravery showed how loyal these canine friends were to each other.
According to The Dodo, “Malafeyev, who often helps dogs in distress, was finally able to earn Panda’s trust and get close enough to pick up Lucy from the tracks.”
He was able to remove Lucy from the dangerous spot she had been living in for the past two days and give her a second chance. Malafeyevgently placed Lucy and Panda in the back of his car for warm safekeeping.
