This Boxer Walked Up To A Pair Of Shoes…Just Wait ‘Til You See What He Does!

Normally, when a dog comes across an unattended pair of shoes, they take the opportunity to tear them apart.

I imagine all those foot smells are pretty enticing.

But when this boxer’s mom told him to fetch her Crocs, rather than running off with them to nom on the irresistibly squishy insoles, he did something so hilarious.

While it’s pretty well-known that Crocs are super comfortable, we had no idea that pups knew this to be true, too!

But seriously, I could watch this on repeat all day long.

This Pup Just Learned That Freaking Out After A Shot Means He’ll Get All The Treats

It might sound weird, but my dog loves going to the vet. She knows that there are tons of new people there to pet her and plenty of treats to go around.

But I know she’s the exception, not the rule.

Our pups have it pretty easy, so it’s understandable that a trip to the vet is one of the most stressful things they experience. They’re poked and prodded…it’s far from a day at the park.

Sawyer here, though, has a little trick up his sleeve to really milk every vet visit for what it’s worth. He’s learned that the louder and longer he cries after a shot, the more likely he is to get loads of treats and belly rubs…

Since he suffered through two shots and got treats each time for whining, this sort of reaction was bound to happen. Which, given how funny he is, isn’t a bad thing, right?

What This Dog Did For Her Owner Will Have Your Jaw On The Floor

Just like any other shelter dog, Lilly hoped someone would see her true colors and adopt her.

That day came when David Lanteigne rescued her for his mom. Christine Spain had suffered from alcoholism and depression, but when Lilly came into her life, she made great strides in her recovery.

But then Spain got some bad family news and she sadly relapsed.

While Lilly and her mom were out on a walk one evening, Spain passed out some railroad tracks. As a train approached, Lilly did the only thing she knew would save her owner…she dragged her off the tracks.

Unfortunately, Lilly sustained debilitating injuries when she took the brunt of the train’s hit.

Veterinarians had to amputate her right front leg and her recovery was long and hard…

But Lilly was a fighter.

After she made a full recovery, the caring pit bull decided to make it her life’s goal to educate others on how great her breed really is.

So many people still believe they’re scary, aggressive animals…but that’s not the case at all.

She was six years old when her forever family took her in, which is even further evidence that old dogs are just as loyal and loving as tiny pups.

Without Lilly, her mom might not have survived to live another day!

If there’s one thing we can all learn from Lilly, it’s this…

Pit bulls are just like any other dog — with a little love, a home, and a caring forever family, they can and WILL be the best pup you’ve ever owned.

Be sure to follow along with all of Lilly’s adventures on her Facebook page!

Cheetah And Dog Best Buddies Experience Their First Snow Day Together

Back in October, cheetah cub Kumbali was in need of a friend after being separated from his mother. That’s when a yellow labrador named Kago came to his rescue and the pair became unlikely pals.

Months later, Kumbali is doing very well and lives at the Metro Richmond Zoo in Virginia where his best friend works as a companion to other animals. During the recent heavy snow brought by Winter Storm Jonas, the zoo closed down and the best friends got to play around in the fresh powder together. Their reaction to the white fluff is beyond adorable.

Funny to see how the cheetah isn’t nearly as fast in the snow, giving his pooch friend the upper hand paw.

When ‘You Raise Me Up’ Comes On In This Car, This Bulldog Just Has To Sing Along!

It turns out that you and I aren’t the only ones who love belting out our favorite tunes as we drive down the highway. Whenever this adorable bulldog hears “You Raise Me Up” playing in the car, he just can’t help but sing right alongside Josh Groban.

His human friends do a good job…but this pup has the performance down pat!

That bulldog is going to be a star. He’s adorable, has a great howl, and is great with fans — the perfect combo to become a star! Now, to just get Josh Groban on board with his new backup singer…

Stray Dogs Are Everywhere, Even In A Paradise Like The Costa Rican Jungle…

We’ve been writing about the amazing work that Hope For Paws does for years now. But I think they’ve officially outdone themselves.

On a recent trip to Costa Rica to get some much-deserved vacation time, it wasn’t long before they were called about a heartbreaking situation with an abandoned pup. The team quickly switched gears from drinks on the beach to a life-saving mission to rescue helpless dogs.

Their first call was about a poor girl who’d been tied up and abandoned by her family.

But as they were loading her into the car, they found this puppy. She’d been badly burned, probably by boiling water.

In the middle of the night, this poor boy — they named him Hank — walked into the Costa Rican rescue they were stationed at.

He’d clearly been attacked by another animal.

With so many new visitors, all the other dogs at the rescue were very curious.

Just driving around, Hope For Paws encountered tons of homeless pets.

These two were very timid.

Even owned pets are neglected — this poor puppy was covered in fleas.

Watch the rest of their rescue mission below.

I’m so glad all these sweet dogs were able to find comfort and care at the Costa Rica Dog Rescue, thanks to Hope For Paws. If you can, please consider donating to these amazing causes.

The Most Adorable Wolfdog Puppies Swarm Woman With Tiny Kisses

The only thing cuter than a puppy is, of course, a dozen puppies! You’ll know exactly how true that is once you see this overjoyed woman get swarmed by twelve adorably fluffy wolfdog puppies, who jump all over her while giving her the sweetest little puppy kisses.

If only our mornings could start like this…this would be the best alarm clock ever!

This adorable litter of Czechoslovakian wolfdog puppies are currently being taught how to hunt at their woodland home in Slovakia. Although, it seemed like all they wanted to do that morning was cuddle and play in the snow.

You Can Stop Rubbing This Fierce Puppy When HE SAYS YOU CAN STOP

For this adorable pooch named Pupper, there’s only one rule in his house — you don’t stop rubbing his belly until he tells you to stop. Apparently, though, his humans didn’t get the memo, because they like to test his patience every so often with hilarious results. See for yourself, and prepare to laugh.

Just be warned: if you’re ever in Pupper’s house, you have to play by Pupper’s rules!

As the Hulk says, “You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry!” Judging by this video, we’re betting Pupper would certainly say the same thing. (Though we bet he’d still be ridiculously cute!)

Hope For Paws is an amazing organization that gives countless dogs a chance at a happy life.

When Eldad Hagar heard about Sage, Ginger, and Emma living alone on a mountain, he didn’t hesitate to take quite a trek to save these dogs. They were frightened and alone, but this rescue team wasn’t afraid to get their hands a little dirty.

The dogs were panicked at first, but they soon realized that these people were here to help.

Sage and Emma have already been adopted, but if you’re interested in adopting Ginger, please visit SCLRR’s website.

She Was Trapped And Starving, But Watch What Happened When They Showed Up

When brothers Dan and Bret Friend traveled to Payette National Forest in Idaho for a family reunion, they were excited to visit a secret cave they thought nobody else knew about.

But when they arrived, something didn’t feel right. As they approached the entrance of the cave, they heard whimpering sounds and quickly realized that there was a dog trapped at the bottom. They knew they had to do something to help, so the heroes gathered their family members together and sprung into action.

I’m so glad they showed up when they did.

Tinker the hound was being trained to hunt bears when she fell into the hole, making it impossible for her trainer to find her. The poor thing had been trapped down there for two weeks and was starving, only surviving by licking up the condensation that formed on the cave’s walls.

This is amazing.

After being reunited with her grateful owner, Tinker got a nice steak dinner and enjoyed every single bite. I bet you never thought you’d be thankful for a family reunion, huh?
