She Hobbled As Far As She Could, Flies Gathered Thinking She Was Too Far Gone

Living on the streets is hard enough. Battling wounds while living on the streets is an impossible scenario.

This poor baby was so badly injured that when she tried to get out of the hot sun to nurse her wounds, she fell into a sewage ditch.

She lay there, being ravaged by flies. Maggots had invaded her body. Who knows how close she was to death– by infection, starvation, and dehydration.

The pup’s savior came just in time. Imagine how much her heart swelled seeing this man kneel down with delicious dog treats just for her.

The dog was too sick to eat the dog biscuits but it still made her feel special. The rescuer took a blanket to wrap her with so he can lift her from the ditch.

The rescuer wasted no time. In the blink of an eye, the badly injured dog was at the medical center. The vet poured special powder into the wound to kill the maggots.

Her wound was HUGE. They wrapped the wound so the medicine could do its thing. Within a few hours, the powder would kill all the maggots and they could remove them.

Next, it was time to administer IV fluids to treat her dehydration. She would remain on IV fluids with antibiotics and pain meds for several days.

The next day, while sedated, the pup’s wounds were cleaned out. She was such a trooper! It was touch and go for several weeks. The little warrior continued to fight hard but it was an uphill battle.

Six weeks later, the brave dog THANKFULLY made a full recovery. They gave her the most precious name: Shanti. Meet Shanti now!

Shanti was hesitant and didn’t really trust humans but one of the caregivers, Kamal, won her over. She’s so happy around him!

Now, these two are inseparable! What a wonderful, happy ending for Shanti. The dog that was at death’s door is now thriving!

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.

Source: StoryTrender/YouTube

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.
