A homeless dog is Chile's newest hero after it appeared to risk its own life to help a canine companion.

A surveillance camera caught the dog running past speeding cars on a busy Santiago freeway to grab the body of another dog that had been fatally hit by a vehicle.

The heroic canine then dragged the other dog to the median.

The scene has been broadcast by Chilean television and posted on YouTube.

Authorities say people have called and offered to adopt the four legged hero, but no one has been able to find it.
