    This puppy, now named Dottie, was stranded in the middle of a busy Phoenix highway at rush hour on Monday.

    An Arizona state worker is being called a local hero after rescuing a small white puppy from the middle of a busy highway, NBC News reported.

    Gil Estrada was monitoring Phoenix traffic cameras on Monday when he saw the puppy dodging cars on State Route 51. The puppy stopped when she got to the median, hopped onto the concrete barrier before she made it and lay down.

    Estrada rushed into his car and drove to rescue the puppy, who was cowering on the carrier for an hour.

    Authorities haven’t been able to find the owner of the puppy, who is now at a shelter, where she was given the name Dottie.
