Animal Rescuers Were Shocked When This Stray Dog Walked Up To Them

Our friends at Animal Aid Unlimited have seen just about everything when it comes to stray dogs in desperate need of help — but when this pup, suffering from a life-threatening abscess on his face, ran right up to them during his rescue, they were shocked. His face was so swollen it was about twice the size it normally should be!

After seeing the state the poor dog was in when they first discovered him, you’ll hardly believe that it’s the same pooch at the end.

This sweetheart would have perished if it weren’t for these kind people rushing in and saving him.

91-Year-Old Woman Died Protecting Her Cat From A Tornado, And The Cat Survived

John has been a fireman for 34 years. Over the past few decades, he’s seen plenty of destruction, but what he saw after a tornado blew through this neighborhood really broke his heart.

While going through some rubble, he came across the body of a 91-year-old woman whose house had been flattened by the tornado. What shocked him most, however, was what he found in her arms. It was her pet cat, and it was still alive. This woman lost her life protecting her best friend.

That’s so sad. If you don’t believe that pets are like family, you’re clearly mistaken. This woman made the ultimate sacrifice for her companion.

Heartbroken Mama Dog Has An Incredible Reunion With Her Adorable Puppies

When a Good Samaritan came across a lactating pit bull wandering the streets of Christchurch, New Zealand, he knew that he needed to help.

The poor dog was dragging a rope and a heavy padlock behind her. The kind stranger assumed that she’d just given birth and that her puppies were nearby. However, the litter was nowhere to be found and the heartbroken mother dog had to spend the night in the pound, missing her pups like crazy.

The day after, a volunteer of the Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue managed to track down the house that the pit bull came from. The volunteer convinced the homeowner to sign their dogs over to the rescue organization and the very next day, the mother dog — who they named Missy — had the most heartwarming reunion with her babies.

Thank you to the men and women who dedicate their lives to saving animals in need.

You May Be Surprised When You Realize Just What Dogs Are Able To Eat

Anytime we bust out some “people food,” our pups know to lay it on thick. Their sad, begging eyes hypnotize us into submission as we drop a few harmless crumbs to the ground.

But are they really safe for our furry friends to devour?

As you know, there are plenty of things that are not only bad for our dogs, but could also be fatal for them. Chocolate is one, but pay attention to this video…what you learn in the next minute could save lives.

Did you learn something new about your dog’s diet? If so, share this video so all your pet owner friends can become informed, too!

They Were Out At Sea When They Saw Something Swimming Through The Waters…

A group of sailors was enjoying an outing off the coast of Naples, Italy, when they spotted something small and furry struggling to keep its head above the waves far out in the waters. The poor pup had apparently fallen off a ferry while on his way home with his new owner, but the ferry crew refused to stop and retrieve him.

Luckily, these kind strangers were more than happy to pull the sweet pooch up to safety.

He had clearly been treading water for a while by the time they found him.

He was exhausted and shaking from the chilly waters.

You can see his whole incredible rescue in the video here:

They were able to locate his owner who was overjoyed to see the cutie, whose name is Noodle, alive and well. The ferry company issued an apology and are currently investigating their crew members who told the distressed owner his pup had “probably already drowned” rather than attempt a rescue.

This Is What Happens When You Have The Dog Take A Family Photo

Humans love taking pictures of their dogs.

Facebook and Instagram wouldn’t be the same without adorable pups cheesing it up for the camera. But what would happen if our four-legged friends were the ones behind the camera for a change? What would a family photo taken by a dog look like?

That’s what this video entitled “PhoDOGrapher” aims to find out with the help of a toy poodle named Otome, a border collie named Selene, and a miniature dachshund named Falcon — and with the help of their families too, of course!

Those dogs are better photographers than me. I can only imagine the happy memories those portraits will provide to the families involved.

When They Found This Stray Dog He Had An Injured Paw – Now Watch As He Gets Help

Recently, animal rescue organization Howl Of A Dog came across a stray roaming around an industrial area in Romania. When they approached the poor pup, they noticed he was licking a bloody wound on one of his paws. To make things worse, he also had a deep cut on his tongue, most likely caused by licking the inside of a sharp metal can or a broken glass container while scavenging through garbage for food. They knew they had to get the little guy out of these harsh surroundings, and luckily for everyone involved, he jumped into the back of their car without a fight.

Watch Amigo’s heartwarming rescue story.

What a sweetheart. He clearly wanted nothing more than to be loved!

They Had No Idea How Their Dog Kept Escaping, So They Set Up This Hidden Camera

For a pair of dog owners in Fort St. James, Canada, the mystery of how their adorable pup managed to get out of his crate was a constant source of discussion. Did one of them sneak into the garage and let him out? Could he have learned how to unlock the door? No one knew!

Instead of constantly wondering, they decided to set up a camera to catch the cutie in the act…this is pure genius, people!

This has to be one of the most unique ways we’ve ever seen a dog escape from captivity. I wonder if his gums hurt afterwards?

These Guys Thought They’d Attracted Some Fish, But They Got A Huge Surprise Instead

A few fishermen were trying to catch snapper about 10 miles off the southern coast of New South Wales, Australia, when they spotted something moving toward them.

At first, they thought they finally had some fish on their lines, but they quickly realized that that these visitors wanted nothing to do with their bait!

Dolphins are such gorgeous, majestic creatures. I bet it’s incredible to see them in their natural habitat, especially when there are so many of them!
