ORLANDO, Fla. – Some stories restore your faith in humanity.

Our reporter Nadeen Yanes and photographer Tee Taylor were on their way to a story Friday afternoon when they saw a group of large men gathered around a puppy on the side of East Colonial Drive in Orlando.

They stopped to investigate and discovered the men were wrestlers from all over the country. They were on their way to WWE auditions in town when they saw a puppy darting through traffic.

The wrestlers stopped their car and chased the puppy out of the road, saving its life.

The whole scene happened right in front of East Colonial Animal Hospital, which was happy to take in the dog.

"We might be big guys, but we also have big hearts," one of the wrestlers told Yanes. 

 

What an amazing Friday surprise! We were on our way to our story when we saw these huge guys surrounding a tiny puppy so we had to stop! Turns out these guys are in town for WWE wrestling tryouts and they saw this dog darting through traffic.
