Selfless Man Drags Cart Along Borders For 6 Years, Rescues Over 500 Homeless Dogs

Mexico’s Edgardo Zúñiga Juárez was always disturbed by the plight of the abused, abandoned and injured homeless dogs in his country.

He became more and more frustrated as he learned about the miserable state of the rural dogs who were out of the reach of the cities’ shelters.

Edgardo felt a strong pull to help the rural dogs, so he came up with the most ingenious idea to save them.

He decided that he would travel along every rural area along the country’s border on foot and rescue every suffering dog he encountered.

In this short documentary, Edgardo explains that he has been on his rural crusade for 6 years now.

He has shunned all comforts of life, and is always on the road pulling a cart that he uses as a portable home for the dogs.

Edgardo has rescued over 500 dogs in his travels. He not only feeds them, but also prepares them for adoption.

Sometimes, Edgardo finds dying, abused dogs who are beyond any help. In such cases, he simply stays with them during their last moments.

Edgardo is haunted by the alarming rise in the number of animal abusers, and hopes that the younger generation learns to be more compassionate toward animals.

Edgardo Perros – Saviour of the Dogs

A few months ago I was driving out of the small Mexican town of Mazunte, Oaxaca, when I saw a peculiar sight on the side of the road. A man was pushing a trolley along the road and surrounding him were dogs. Dogs were on top of his trolley. Dogs were behind him, in front of him and by his side. Tails were wagging furiously, barks were sounding and he just kept pushing his trolley through the heat. This is the story of Edgardo Perros. Thank you to Fernando Cortez Marques from for all his help in shooting this project with me and editing all the Spanish interviews!Thank you to Laurie Alexander for helping with the logistics and thank you to Sat Chit Ananda for his translation work.

Lucky Elderly Man Is Greeted Every Day By A “Friend” Who Crawls Out Of The Ice:

We’ve all seen some unique and unlikely friendships over the years, but this one here may take the cake!

One day, a starving otter appeared at an elderly man’s door wanting some food. Ever since, Seppo Laamanen, 65, and Iivari the otter have been inseparable best friends.

It all started when Seppo fed worms and fish to the small and malnourished otter who was clearly looking for food.

After that, the friendly animal repaid the kindness by visiting the man at his home in Punkaharju in easter Finland. This was the start of something special.

There’s no way Seppo could’ve ever imagined it’d all lead to this. This adorably unique friendship is one for the ages, and it’s something you have to see to believe.

There’s nothing like the bond between two friends regardless of the species! 🙂

10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet

Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.

While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.

These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.

1) Akita

When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.

2) Boxer

This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.

3) Skye Terrier

Known as the “small dog with the big ears,” this adorable breed hails from the Scottish Isle of Skye, hence the name. Whether you live in the city or the country, this small dog with a big personality is steadfast in snuggling, playtime, and remaining loyal to his owners.

4) Beagle

This merry hound is friendly, curious and incredibly loyal. While he doesn’t mind the occasional couch potato time, this spunky pooch is energetic and merry. A fun fact about this hound: the breed standard is for 13 inches and under and another in the 13-15 inch category. No matter how you size him, these adorable dogs just want to cling to you.

5) Shar-Pei

This wrinkly non-sporting breed is standoffish to strangers but very loyal to his owner. His ancient Chinese roots are part of the charm of the Shar-Pei. Regal, strong, and smart, if you want a BFF for life, this loose-skinned pooch may be the right choice for you.
