Brain-Damaged Pup Curled Up To Hide, Tries To Lift Head & Thank Woman But Can’t

A young puppy was hit hard on the head by his cruel owner and then thrown out onto the street. He deserved love and affection but instead saw the worst of humanity at such a young age.

He needed medical attention immediately but so many people just walked by as if he didn’t exist.

Thankfully a kind woman saw that he was in pain and wanted to take him in from the cruel streets. She and her son were concerned about his trauma.

At such a young age, and small size, a head injury could lead to permanent brain damage. They try to pick him up but he’s very out of it. He keeps curling back up, wanting to hide from the world.

A few hours later, after coming home with the woman, he tries to make eye contact with her. His sweet little face keeps searching for hers but he struggles.

His head injury makes focusing difficult. He’s trying to thank his rescuers in his own way and it’s quite remarkable.

As soon as the vet can see the puppy, they head over. The vet runs several tests on the puppy and explains that time will tell how much he will heal.

They just have to be patient. Realistically, a brain injury like this can go either way. He can heal and live a somewhat normal life or his injuries could get worse.

His rescuer cries because she’s already so in love with the puppy. He needs to live and he needs to thrive! The puppy then thanks the vet with lots of kisses.

Back at his rescuer’s house, the puppy eats and drinks and plays when he’s up to it. Each day he makes progress and it’s a fantastic sign!

The best part of all is when he begins to feel well enough to wag his tail. The little guy is so happy which means he’s no longer in pain.

In a matter of weeks, the puppy has made tremendous strides. He can make eye contact and his vision is much better. In fact, the vet said that the puppy’s progress even amazed him!

The little warrior is so loved and bonded to his new human friends that his rescuer refuses to part with him (and who can blame her?!)

You have to see his transformation for yourself. It’s so heartwarming. Scroll on down and check out this incredible rescue.

10 of the Smartest Dogs in the World:


A friend of mine has a beautiful Dalmatian. Friendly, energetic and lovable, she was a perfect family pet… but she wasn’t the smartest pooch on the planet. See, she knew how to go through the pet door out into the garden, but she had no clue how to get back inside. It never occurred to her that the flap could swing both ways. So she would sit outside and howl until my friend would open the door.

Repeated demonstrations of the dual movement of the flap had no effect; it just did not compute. The dog breeds on this list, however, probably don’t have that problem. They’re widely considered to be among the cleverest canines in the world. Take a look and see if you agree.

1. German Shepherd

No surprise here. German Shepherds are the world’s best police dogs, military dogs, and some have even been movie stars (remember Rin Tin Tin?). Brave, loyal, smart and strong, they’re the total package.

2. Beagle

Also on the list of the best family-friendly dogs in the world, the Beagle has an incredible nose that lets them sniff out just about anything. Born detectives, they’re not the most trainable pets, but they are smart. And hey, nobody ever accused Snoopy of being dumb.

3. Golden Retriever

A popular choice for assistance dogs for their easy temperament, natural intelligence and loyalty, Golden Retrievers are natural guides and also serve as great rescue dogs. Active and fun to be around, they’re wonderful family pets.

4. Border Collie

Border Collies are considered by many to be the geniuses of the dog world. Expert herders, laser-focused (they’re known for their intense stare), and incredibly agile to boot, they’re workaholics and excellent athletes. Just don’t expect to keep one cooped up in an apartment.

5. Poodle


Did you know poodles were originally hunting dogs? They respond very well to training and are quick to learn tricks. So don’t let the fluffy looks and styled mane fool you! These dogs are among the smart canines around. Plus, they’re among the best dogs in the world for those who suffer allergies.

6. Belgian Malinois


A terrific military dog, the Malinois is a natural herder, tracker and worker. Smart, trainable and protective, these dogs require an owner who knows what he or she is doing. In addition to the military, Malinois are often recruited as guard dogs and police dogs as well.

7. Papillon

Named for their butterfly-shaped ears, papillons are small, cute and pretty smart. They’re considered the smartest of the toy dog breed, with intelligence levels comparable to the über-smart border collie. They’re alert and focused pets, and loyal and lovable: an ideal friend for he family.

8. Doberman


Sadly, Dobermans are known more for their ferocity than their smarts, but these are considered among the most intelligent dogs in the world, as well as one of the most effective guard dogs around. They’re outstanding students known to be affectionate and obedient.

9. Bloodhound

Don’t let the wrinkles and dopey expression fool you! Bloodhounds have the keenest of noses, and are often used for trailing (so much so that their evidence can be used in court against you!). These are loving but strong-willed dogs, and are often used on search and rescue missions.

10. Australian Cattle Dog

You need a smart, determined and energetic dog to control unruly cows. And that’s just what the Australian Cattle Dog, or ACD, does. They’re intelligent enough to herd these much larger creatures, and while they need their independence and wide open spaces, they’re eager workers who know how to get the job done.
