Default Dog chucked out of truck this morning

So I was about to fill up on gas this morning when a white truck going down the six lane highway next to the gas station slowed down, popped open a door, and chucked a small dog out onto the median. Then they gunned it and took off. I ended up running like a fool across three lanes of traffic and stopping cars so I could herd him over to the gas station and corral him into my car. Vet checked him over and he is fine, no serious injuries. An adorable, sweet little miniature aussie mix.

I just can't believe with so many rescues and shelters that would take him in or with all the options of trying to rehome him online or through the newspaper that someone would drop him on the median of a busy highway during morning rush hour. It's not like we don't have country roads. They could have just as easily dropped him in front of the animal shelter. Heck, at least along a less busy country lane. But they chose the highway. I really can't draw any other conclusions besides they wanted it to get run over. :/

Sometimes people are exceptionally horrible and I lose a large chunk of my faith in humanity...

That is just awful. I would have ran across the highway like a fool to. Do you still have him? How old is he? Thank you for saving him. We live in a very sad world and things like this happen every day. I seen a 6 week old kitten get tossed into traffic. I will never forget it, even though several of us stopped to help and it lived, it shouldn't have happened anyway

I've decided I'm going to keep him. I wasn't planning on getting another dog for a year or so, but he's a breed that I like, small enough that he doesn't take up the rest of my apartment, dog and people friendly, yet still tough enough to romp and roll with Kaiju no problem. He's staying with me. The vet says he is probably 8 or 9 months old.
