The outlet added that Princess’ rescue took place on June 15, when Tudors received an alert about a dog spotted on a highway in need of help. Tudors located the collapsed and exhausted animal on the side of Interstate 75 and quickly provided the dog with respite from the 96-degree heat.

After finding the dog, Tudors established a relationship of trust with the pup by sitting in a chair next to her. Once Princess seemed comfortable with the Tudors, the soldier used an umbrella to shade the dog from the sun and provided him with water and snacks.
