Woman Sobbed Over Dog That Passed Alone In Box, Turned To Leave & He Panted

A poor dog was found alone and suffering after being abused and neglected his entire life. His owner put him in a cardboard box during a storm and left him in a field to die.

His owner didn’t have a shred of decency. By the time someone spotted the box and ran over, the dog was struggling to breathe.

He lay there with his mouth slightly open and he barely moved at all. It was only a matter of time before he took his last breaths.

Someone finally spotted the dog and ran over. She was distraught, desperate to help the dying dog. She took out her phone and called for help.

A local rescue group rushed to the field. They were in total disbelief. This dog was holding on by a thread! They put him in the car and headed straight to have him examined.

They named the dog Valente. Valente was bruised and starved. His body was so weak that he couldn’t stand on his own.

In fact, Valente was so malnourished that he could no longer lift his head to eat. The rescuers and clinic workers took care of Valente around the clock until he was stabilized.

He had a long way to go. His body was so thin and broken down.

After several days of IV fluids and nutrition, Valente perked up. He was still too weak to get up on his own but he was smiling and that was an excellent sign!

For the first time, he truly felt accepted. The next step was to start physical therapy. His legs were in bad shape and in order for him to walk again, therapy was a must.

Valente especially liked hydrotherapy. He felt safe in his therapist’s arms as he swam in the water. His legs didn’t hurt either. With time and dedication, Valente continued to get better and better.

Wait until you see how far he’s come! At the end of the video, you will have a huge smile on your face. Thank you to everyone who dedicated their time, and their love, to Valente!

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.
