Dog Withers Away In Trash Pile, Neighbor Claims Dog’s Fine & To Leave Him Be

Homelessness affects both humans and animals. We do what we can but for advocates, it’s an uphill battle.

A group of people was squatting on a piece of property. Their make-shift outdoor home was not conducive to healthy living.

And to make matters worse, there was a dog with them too!

A concerned neighbor called Tia, from Pit Bulls And Parolees, to come out and have a look at him.

When Tia arrived, she went in back to check it out. Behind a trailer was a sweet Pit Bull that was skin and bones. He had no food and was tethered to a tree.

There was garbage on top of garbage–  and dog waste everywhere. The poor dog only had a bowl filled with dirt and rainwater. His skin was exposed from either mange or allergies.

What was most heartbreaking was how relieved and happy the dog was to see Tia and her assistant. The dog was left all alone and was in desperate need of food and affection.

He wagged his tail like crazy. He was now going to live at the sanctuary. His sad days were now officially over! This was not a life for any dog!

When Tia was leaving, a nosy neighbor began to scream: “Hey, that’s Johnny’s dog!”

Tia explained that she didn’t care whose dog he was, that he was coming with her because he was obviously not being cared for.

The guy was pissed off. He responded to the situation as if the dog, a beautiful living creature, was a piece of stolen property. He also repeatedly said that the dog was fine.

Tia’s assistant went up to him and told him that the dog wasn’t fine and leaving him behind like that isn’t okay.

While it appeared that the neighbor eventually calmed down, it was obvious that he would never understand that dogs are WAY MORE like children than they are a piece of property.

They don’t just deserve to be cared for– they MUST be cared for. It’s not optional!

Now that the dog is in good hands, he will be well-cared for. That’s what truly matters.

Please, like the caller in this story did, if you see something, say something. If you know that an animal is not being properly cared for, doing nothing makes you guilty too!

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.
