There’s one fact that remains true no matter what — we don’t deserve dogs. Now, some of us know that this is true, and we work tirelessly to thank all the dogs for their unconditional love. We found some superheroes that took their doggy devotion to another level, and we can’t wait to tell you about them.
We love dogs!
Anyone who owns dogs knows our canine friends are all about love and devotion. Heck, dogs have even saved our lives — even if it means risking their own in the process.
Dogs are like the better parts of ourselves, so it’s wonderful when people step up for our canine companions. We found ten people who did just that.
The dog dad who spent a night in the emergency clinic with his friend
After all, we know that if that human was sick, that dog wouldn’t leave his side.
The kind vet who sits and eats with a scared shelter dog
This veterinarian knew just how to make this dog feel a bit better — by sitting down in his kennel and sharing a meal with him. What a lovely thing to do.
This dog dad, who took his friend for a huge trip during his pup’s final days
Poh was a beautiful dog, and we sure are glad his dad was able to do this with him.
The news reporter in Peru who rescued a dog caught in a flood in the middle of a live broadcast
At first, this poor, scared little dog seems to be trying to avoid reporter Aaron Rodriguez, but the reporter finally caught up with him and took the pooch to dry ground. Rodriguez almost accidentally became entirely submerged in the process. That’s real altruism!
Then there are the kind owners of this laundry who weren’t about to let anyone take this dog to a shelter
The laundry owners could have taken the lazy way out, but they decided not to. Kudos to them for doing this!
And this dog groomer who visits a New York shelter every week to give dogs free haircuts
The cute dog in the photo found a home! Chances are this man knows that a well-groomed dog is likelier to be adopted. He’s helped save this dog’s life, and who knows how many others he’s helped? What a wonderful way to make a difference!
These neighbors who took action during a flood
For anyone who’s ever owned pets, knowing there are neighbors like this is a comforting thing. We should all be so lucky.
This dog was in a perilous situation. Then these rescuers found her
She’d fallen into a deep well, so rescuers from Animal Aid Unlimited, in India rappelled down the wall of the well to rescue her. The dog’s grateful expression towards the end of the video pretty much says it all.
And the high school cross country team that likes to take shelter dogs on a run
When these athletes take the dogs out for exercise, it gives them a chance to relieve the stress of being confined. We’re betting that this as much fun for the high schoolers as it is for the dogs.
The delivery driver who really stepped up
This story is nothing short of remarkable. This dog might have met a sad end on a busy road! Thanks to the driver’s quick thinking, though, the happy pooch and his delighted owner are together once again.
Dogs are our loyal friends, and many people would agree that humans got the better end of this deal. After all, they are a child’s best friend, they keep us safe, and they add a touch of goofiness when necessary.
So. any time a human makes a dog’s life better, it’s a beautiful thing.
