In what might be the most heartwarming story you’ll read all week, a gorgeous little rescue puppy called Lara has been helping dogs less fortunate than herself.
Lara was rescued herself from the streets of Brazil by owner Suelen Shaumloeffel, and she clearly hasn’t forgotten what life is like trying to get by without a home. After seeing a homeless dog sleeping outside of her house, she decided to drag her nice, warm blanket outside to share it with him. Does that not just warm the cockles of your heart?
Apparently it’s been a little bit nippy recently, so Lara’s owner got her a thicker blanket than normal. Despite the cooler weather, Lara was more than happy to share the goods. After spotting what her new puppy had been doing, Suelen has now been leaving food and water for the stray dog:
I thought, “How beautiful that she did that for her friend”.
My best four-legged friend reminded me of something so important: generosity!
She is the nicest little dog I’ve ever met. We forget sometimes the difference we can make in someone’s life. She reminded me of this.
I’m not crying guys, I just have something in my eyes.
For more reasons why dogs are the best thing ever, here’s buddy the rescue dog playing fetch with himself.
