True to the Malaysian spirit, a group of motorcyclists recently worked together and rescued a terrified poodle named Dafi, which was reported lost for about two weeks.
The dog was spotted running on a busy street in Kuala Lumpur.
In a viral video, several motorcyclists are seen trying to catch the dog which is seen running and evading them between moving vehicles.
I received this short video from Rosalynn this late afternoon. It breaks my heart seeing Dafi running at the street feeling scare and probably looking for me. I really tear up. It’s been 10 days since Dafi has gone missing. Whoever has picked up my Dafi, could you return him to me please? ???
**Dafi is not on the street. He has been picked up by a 40-50 years old Indian guy. We can’t locate him at the moment. (Please read my previous post before you text me and scold me for being careless. TQ )
Please help me share this post. ??

One of the rescuers even dived and fell flat on the road to stop Dafi from running into traffic.
After about two minutes, about 10 motorcyclists, including several foodpanda and Grab delivery riders successfully cornered the dog at the side of the road.
One of them then managed to catch Dafi and the dog was later reunited with its owner, Steven Chong.
Chong expressed his gratitude on his Facebook page after being reunited with Dafi.
“I met Mr. Siva at 6.30pm and brought Dafi home. He’s still in shock and looks quiet, not as jumpy as he used to be.
“I will make a video during the next one or two days cos I have people that I need to thank. Your messages/text/phone calls are overwhelming. Your insatiable love towards Dafi and me are overflowing.
“I am so grateful to everyone of you who has been trying to help and I couldn’t thank you enough. Bless all of you, my fellow Malaysians.”
Videos and images of the heroic effort have since gone viral on social media platforms, with netizens praising the teamwork by the kind souls
“Guys, guys, you all have to watch this! This is how Malaysia should be. All Foodpanda and Grab drivers and all the other car and bike riders, they helped rescue the poodle puppy! I can’t stop smiling and being happy,” said a Twitter user.
A Facebook user said, “Thanks to all the kind people of all races that stopped to help, especially our abang-abang food delivery heroes.
