A group of animal lovers are trying to rehome a dog that miraculously escaped death by dodging cars on Scotland's deadliest road.
Selwyn was discovered on the A9 near Newtonmore where it is thoughts he was deliberately dumped on the dual carriageway to die.
However, the lucky long-haired lurcher was spotted and rescued before he could come to any harm.
Selwyn, who is thought to be about three-years-old, was seen running between vehicles on the 70mph road and one kind driver put his own life at risk by pulling over and rescuing the animal.
The dog is now being cared for by Grantown Dog Rescue who have no kennels but foster dogs to volunteers.
A spokeswoman for Grantown Dog Rescue said: "Sometimes dogs are dumped because they are old working dogs. It's like a joiner having a broken hammer, it just gets chucked. Same thing happens with dogs. Selwyn looks a bit like working dog."
The spokeswoman said the fact Selwyn was found running about on the A9 could mean his former owners intended for him to be killed.
Selwyn, who was given his name by rescue staff, was in a poor state when found earlier this month but the group believe he would make a great pet.
"He seems perfectly happy since he was handed in. He's really a sweetheart," she said.
"He really needs the right owner that can make him a top priority."
