Feeble Dog Chained Up For 5 Years Wept As Rescuer Held Her Face In Her Hands

A YouTube subscriber that follows Love Furry Friends online reached out about a dog in her neighborhood. The poor pup had been living on a chain outside for five years.

She was emaciated and lost all her fur from advanced mange. Her owner didn’t feed her or give her any affection.

The neighbor would come by and give the dog all she could afford… which was stale bread. The sweet dog ate it up whole, through the fence, without even chewing.

To say she was starving was a vast understatement. The Good Samaritan took a video of the poor pup and sent it along with her message. The rescue group promised to help the dog and showed up the next day.

The rescuers were adamant! They were going to take this dog with them so they could save her life! They did all they could to convince the dog’s owner to surrender her.

It took hours, going back and forth as to why the dog needed care and they would report her to the authorities if she didn’t surrender her.

The owner finally agreed. As soon as they approached the sweet dog, she seemed to understand why they were there.

The sweet girl looked up as if to thank them. They gave her some pats on the head and told her that everything was going to be okay now.

They took her off the chain, finally after five years, and put her in their vehicle. It was time for a thorough vet check! It was time for a new life and a new name. They chose to name her Lada.

The vet confirmed that she had a terrible type of skin infection caused by fleas. Because she wasn’t treated for fleas for five years, Lada was really suffering.

Thankfully she was finally in the right hands! As Lada stood on the examination table, and a rescuer gave her some affection, she wagged her tail for the first time. It was a magical moment for sure!

Lada must stay at the vet clinic for a month. She needs around the clock care until her weight stabilizes. During that time, Lada learns what it means to be loved.

Her new friends visit her daily and are so happy to see that her fur is growing back and she’s putting on weight. At five years old, she has never known love before but now her future looks bright!

Soon Lada will be healthy enough to find her forever home. We are so happy that this girl is finally free from the cruel chain and her heartless owner.

We are so happy for Lada, aren’t you?

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.
