Scottish tennis star Andy Murray got two new fans the day before Wimbledon started. One has four legs and the other is the pup’s thankful parent.

The reigning tennis champ was on his way home from a practice on Sunday when he saw a dog running in the middle of traffic.

“There was a dog running along the road so I parked at traffic lights and got out and tried to stop the traffic, because the dog was running towards the oncoming cars,” told Murray. “I stopped the traffic and managed to get the dog on the back seat of my car.”

After getting the dog safely into his custody, Murray drove out to the spot where he knew dog owners like himself walk their four legged friends, a park just around the corner.

“I drove to the place nearby where all the local people walk their pets, literally round the corner, and parked. I called the number on the tag ­and, amazingly, my two dogs walk with that dog quite a lot.”

Needless to say the dog’s owner was more than thankful that the tennis star took the time to rescue her pet.

“She was happy I had picked it up,” he said. “It had obviously been chasing something because it was absolutely shattered. It was drooling everywhere in the car, panting, but thankfully it was safe.”

If setting up a Twitter account for his border Terrier, Maggie, wasn’t enough, this definitely solidifies Murray’s status as a dog lover.
