Frantic Stray Puts Tiny Paw On Brother’s Still Body, Nudged Him To Wake Up

Two puppies, part of an unwanted litter, were left on the side of the road by a callous man. They couldn’t take care of themselves but tried their best to find food.

Sadly, when one of the puppies got close to the road, he was struck by a car. He died on impact but his brother didn’t understand why he wasn’t moving anymore.

The surviving pup put his paws on his brother and cried over his body. His whimpers were heard by a passerby who stopped to help. The man’s heart broke for the puppy.

He had never seen an animal grieve before. It was eye-opening for sure. The puppy’s grief proved that animals are capable of emotions just as we are.

The man picked up the surviving puppy and took him to a nearby vet clinic. When he arrived, he explained what he had come upon while walking home.

The man was so sad he couldn’t save the pup’s brother. The vet and his staff comforted the man by explaining that he did his best and now it was time to focus on the puppy that made it.

Luckily, the little pup had no significant injuries other than blood loss and some damage to his ears.

However, he was malnourished and anemic. His anemia was severe and needed to be addressed immediately.

The puppy received blood transfusions and antibiotics. He was also given medication for pain. The staff made sure he received lots of rest, food, and love!

In just a few days, he looked so much better. The little pup was healing inside and out.  The staff made sure he received lots of rest, food, and love!

Soon the puppy is well enough to be placed in a medical foster home. A local group will look for a forever home for this deserving boy!

Thankfully, there are people already showing interest in this brave guy. He will certainly go to a loving home with a family who will spoil him as he deserves to be.

This story does begin tragically. However, it is also triumphant! The brother, now in heaven, is looking down on his sibling for the rest of his life.

He must be so happy to see that his loving brother will have an amazing life.

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.
