Java the Boxer was heavily pregnant when she was found in an enclosed rental property that was recently vacated.
When the property owner contacted the previous family, they feigned ignorance of the dog.
Java was starving, dehydrated, and extremely sick, so the property owner immediately reached out to a local rescue.

Java was relieved to be at the rescue, but luck was just not on her side. The rescue was over capacity and there was no room for Java, so they had to send her away.
At the vet’s, it became evident that Java’s puppies were due. But the 2-year-old dog was holding out the birth due to her over-stressed physical and mental state.
As the sickly Java desperately prayed for a miracle, a woman named Karen from “Lost Pet Found Pet” heard about her.
With the help of her connections, Karen helped Java find boarding at Nob Hill Animal Clinic in Plantation in the middle of the night!

After seeing a roof over her head and caretakers around her, Java finally felt secure. Just a few hours later, she gave birth to a litter of 9 puppies!
Later in the day, the mama and her puppies were transferred to the care of “Florida Boxer Rescue”.

Over the next few months, Java received treatment for various infections, intestinal parasites, and fleas, all due to neglect from her previous owners.
She raised her puppies with love and they were all adopted into splendid homes when they were old enough!
Java found a forever home of her own and is now living the best life with her new humans. What a happy ending for Java and her babies!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
