You may have heard of Ryan Gosling’s heroism in the past. He’s been known to break up fights in New York City and casually save reporters from speeding cars.

Now Gosling can add rescuing a dog to his list of good deeds on his way to sainthood.

While on a date with Eva Mendes in Palm Springs, the actor nearly hit a dog that wandered onto a busy California highway. Gosling quickly stopped his car and carried the pup to the safety, returning the pooch to his owner.


We can only imagine Gosling then hopped back into his car and resumed his journey to human perfection.

Who can say whose life he’ll save next?
