Ahhh..those fun, happy and smart animals, who wouldn’t love them? And after this reports, where you can see some human characteristics in dogs, and the things they’ve done that some people wouldn’t do, you’ll love them even more. We already wrote about some amazing things that dogs can do, like an selfless and heroic act of an retriever who protected his owners grandson from a wild cougar or a faithful dog who kept a 3-year-old girl warm in freezing temperatures when she was lost overnight. Before you continue to read, we just have to make one disclaimer; these few stories are quite shocking and very emotional.
A surveillance camera on a Santiago, Chile, motorway captured images of a dog dodging speeding cars to pull the lifeless body of another dog, which had been hit a vehicle, away from traffic and onto the median strip.
The scene was broadcast by Chilean television stations and then posted on websites such as YouTube. Hundreds of thousands of people had viewed versions of the rescue.
Authorities say images of the rescue prompted some people to call and offer to adopt the dog, but neither highway workers nor a television crew were able to find it.
Another story comes from New York, US. Just before 6:30 a.m. a 9-year-old female yellow lab chow mix ran onto the Major Deegan Expressway and was hit by a car at exit 3. That’s when another dog, her son, ran to the rescue, right there on the busy highway. The dog wouldn’t let anyone near, barking at traffic and police officers, More..even as they tried to help.
Last two videos are from unknown origin, so if someone knows what happened, please comment and leave us a clue.
