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.

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.

Daisy The Dog Can Neither Confirm Nor Deny That She Did Anything Wrong (LOL)

When I’ve done something wrong, my poker face is pretty terrible.

That’s why I generally just stick to telling the truth. Did I eat all your ice cream? You betchya.

If only I could learn from the masters, though, I think I’d become a pro at fudging the facts a little. Who are the top dogs when it comes to denying guilt? Our pups, of course!

Perhaps it’s their sweet eyes, their coy body language, or just the fact that they can’t talk so they don’t have to make up excuses…

Either way, Daisy has much to teach when it comes to looking the other way when faced with obvious destruction.

Man…she’s good!

I mean, she obviously did it, but I can’t even be mad at her. Maybe that’s the key — being so adorable that no one can fault you!

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!

This Dog Crawled Into A Garden To Die…But Her Journey To Health Will Amaze You

After suffering severe trauma to her head, this street dog in India crawled into a garden, ready to die. Luckily for her, though, rescuers from Animal Aid Unlimited were notified of her condition. They naturally leapt at the opportunity to save the poor girl’s life. But when they got there, they realized just how hurt she was.

They quickly brought her back to their facility, but after two weeks passed without much improvement, the concern of permanent brain damage or death was very real.

But then, at the three week mark, something happened that brought tears to our eyes…

We should warn you, the video does contain graphic images.

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?
