He Thought They Were Like The Others, Ran Then Fought Them With His Broken Body

The amazing team with Hope For Paws has seen it all! When they received a call about a dog hiding out in an industrial area, beneath a building, they were quick to respond.

The man that had called fed him when he could but knew the dog deserved more.

Eldad and Loretta saw the dog hiding and diligently worked to trap him. This wouldn’t be easy. The dog was scared and by his appearance, he hadn’t been cared for in a long time! He took off running through the parking lot.

Finally, they were able to catch him but it was a challenge, for sure. Looking at him broke their hearts. He was so dirty and badly matted.

He whimpered and struggled when the leash was placed around him. He tried to bite it off. Then he tried to bite his rescuers.

To a traumatized dog that was mistreated, humans did not represent kindness.

The rescuers gave him a yummy cheeseburger. The poor dog was famished. They named him Masik (which means “babe” in Russian). He devoured the food.

As he ate, Loretta gently pet his head. She worked hard to prove to Masik that they weren’t going to hurt him.

Eldad wanted to get him to the vet quickly. He knew the dog had serious injuries that needed to be addressed. Loretta went to pick him up nervously.

Thankfully Masik knew that she wasn’t going to harm him and allowed her to carry him. They put him safely into a crate.

He shook with fear but part of him understood he was now in good hands.

Back at the hospital, they sedated Masik so they could shave off his matted fur off. He was too afraid and if he fought the vet techs, he could injure himself further.

Once his body was revealed, the staff could see thousands of fleas. Poor baby!

The vet put him into a deeper sleep to ensure Masik didn’t move. His x-rays were taken which revealed a crushed pelvis. He must’ve been in so much pain.

The next step toward healing was to operate on Masik’s pelvis. He was such a trooper!

Masik was placed, after recovery, in a loving foster home. He’s still available for adoption.

Dog Seen Outside Of Store With A Sign Around His Neck:

Animal lovers have a lot to say about this story but regardless of what you may think, this is one SMART DOG!

Steve Moore rescued Jackson, a three-year-old Golden Retriever, from the shelter. Jackson needed a home and Moore stepped up to the plate. Moore took Jackson in and began working with him every day. In just a month, Moore had him trained to do something PHENOMENAL! His “trick” had every passerby that saw Jackson, wanting this dog for themselves… a dog NO ONE showed interest in just a month prior.

Moore took Jackson to high traffic, busy areas so he could work with him while getting used to the noises and distractions around him. He had Jackson sit and stay. Then he had him sit and stay for a longer period of time. Then, he had him sit and stay while he walked away from him. He did this repeatedly UNTIL Jackson could be left on his own long enough for Moore to go inside of a store and get his errands done. Since dogs are not allowed in most stores, this was a better alternative to leaving him in a car where he could overheat. Plus, he wouldn’t be tied up, so if an emergency should happen, Jackson could run to safety.

The final stage was to get him to sit and stay WHILE wearing a sign around his neck. “Dad told me to wait here. Me waiting.” And Jackson is really good at waiting! Even with commotion around him and people walking up to say “hi” and give him pets, Jackson waits, FAITHFULLY for his human to return. Now that’s a GOOD BOY!

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.

Source: StoryTrender/YouTube

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.
