Woman Adopts Abused Dog With Dead Pups In Womb, Has To Give Her Back & Broke Down

Sadly, there are people in this world that do not treat their pets like family. One dog, named Luna, was abandoned by her owner deep in the mountains.

Thankfully, someone did find her before she died from the elements or lack of food and water.

But saving Luna wasn’t as simple as taking her off that mountain and finding her a new home. Luna had a story to tell.

Once Viktor Larkhill and his team rescued Luna, they realized she was struggling. Luna’s legs were so badly broken that her bones were sticking out.

They rushed her to the vet where they also discovered that she was blind and pregnant. To make matters worse, all 8 puppies had died in the womb.

Luna needed emergency surgery on her legs. The surgery was difficult but Luna did really well. Once she was stable after her leg surgery, the vet operated on her eyes.

Luna regained her sight! The brave dog continued to improve but then something happened.

A year after her surgery, Luna’s new family (YES, she was adopted!) noticed that she was struggling with her legs again.

They took her to the vet and he was sad to report that she needed additional surgery due to complications.

Luna was struggling and needed extensive medical care. Her new family couldn’t provide that.

They lived far away from a vet clinic and her medical bills were about to skyrocket. They couldn’t manage and it broke their hearts.

Viktor offered to take Luna in until she’s well enough to go back home. Luna’s mom had to say goodbye and to say it was tearful is an understatement.

Her mom gave her a big hug and tried to explain to her that she will always be their dog and they would be reunited someday soon.

Luna is still undergoing care but is making progress. Can we send her our prayers? We can’t wait until Luna is back with her family, living a full 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.
