    A Puppy Dyed Purple Got Sick, So He Was Dumped To Fend For Himself

    A purple puppy was found abandoned in the middle of nowhere and left to fend for himself. A Good Samaritan found him and called up the rescuers, and everyone was very confused as to what was going on.

    PetfinderTV

    The puppy was sick and having trouble breathing, and one of his eyes was messed up. They weren’t sure if the puppy was abused and then tossed out or what.

    PetfinderTV

    He arrived at the vet for a checkup and was given some food and plenty of care. They also treated the infected eye. The vet thinks someone dyed the puppy purple causing him to have a bad reaction and get sick. And then not wanting to care for the sick dog, the owner most likely dumped him.

    PetfinderTV

    But with proper medical treatment and love, the little pup started improving right away! He turned out to be quite the fighter with an eye focused on the future. 🙂

    PetfinderTV

    After being medically cleared, the pup went on to a foster home. There he hit it off right away with their older and much bigger dog!

    PetfinderTV

    Now with the puppy safe and sound, they can turn their efforts to finding out who abandoned him in such a cruel way while also trying to find him that perfect forever home!

    Fisherman Scoops Up Bobcat Struggling In The Middle Of The Lake

    Brett Hereford and family were fishing on a lake in Montana one day when they spotted something unusual and made the catch of a lifetime. And no, it was not a fish.

    Out in the middle of Flathead Lake was a bobcat all alone struggling to stay afloat. They knew the poor thing wouldn’t be able to make it back to land by itself, so Brett used a fishing net to scoop it up and bring it to safety.

    No one knows how the bobcat managed to find itself out there all alone, but it wouldn’t have lasted much longer if the Herefords hadn’t come along when they did.

    In a statement made on Facebook, Bob Hereford commented that they took the bobcat back to shore and released it on the land. It was a day of fishing they’ll never forget!

    Bag Thrown Out In A Field Found With 4 Puppies Inside

    Volunteers at Juliana’s Animal Sanctuary were outside feeding the chickens when a tiny black puppy wandered up to them. They immediately scooped the little one up and set out to search the property.

    The little puppy got them to check the property. That’s when they stumbled upon a bag.

    JULIANA’S ANIMAL SANCTUARY

    They opened the bag to discover three more puppies in horrible condition. They were starving and covered in fleas.

    JULIANA’S ANIMAL SANCTUARY

    The five-week-old puppies were separated from their mother and left to die. But thanks to the amazing escape of the one pup, they were found in time.

    JULIANA’S ANIMAL SANCTUARY

    The puppies were rushed to the vet where they received shots and heartworm treatment.

    JULIANA’S ANIMAL SANCTUARY

    But the puppies were healthy for the most part. As for where they came from? Juliana believes someone local tossed them out.

    JULIANA’S ANIMAL SANCTUARY

    The goal was to get them completely healthy before putting them up for adoption. In the meantime, they’d be in good hands!

    JULIANA’S ANIMAL SANCTUARY

    Juliana knew the adoption process would be difficult because of the overwhelming amount of strays in the Bogota area.

    JULIANA’S ANIMAL SANCTUARY

    So if they never found homes, they’d always have the sanctuary as a place to call their own. 🙂

    JULIANA’S ANIMAL SANCTUARY

    The dogs had a long way to go in terms of learning to trust. For the longest time, they just sat there in fear shaking.

    JULIANA’S ANIMAL SANCTUARY

    But always confident in the sanctuary’s process, Juliana was sure she’d get them to where they need to be in life. Amazing rescue and work as always!

    Man Says He’ll Drown 9 Pups If They Aren’t Taken Away, Another Mama Saves Them

    Deborah Wilson of Circle L. Ranch Animal Rescue & Sanctuary tells the story of a mama dog rescued from euthanasia who was brought in with her two healthy puppies. While they were thrilled about saving this wonderful dog from being put down, they received word of another terrible situation.

    A man with nine pit puppies was threatening to drown them if they weren’t taken away. Deborah had to go get them…

    Deborah Wilson/Facebook

    The Circle L. Ranch was able to rescue five of the nine puppies as the others were saved by another organization.

    Deborah Wilson/Facebook

    Seeing the Shepherd mother that they saved nursing her pups, Deborah got an idea…

    Deborah Wilson/Facebook

    She introduced the five puppies one by one, seeing if Mom would take to them. She allowed one to eat and seemed completely fine with it, so the others were brought in.

    Deborah Wilson/Facebook

    Now with a total of seven puppies to care for, she’s a real mom and a surrogate. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it! 🙂

    Deborah Wilson/Facebook

    Deborah is thankful that the abuse was reported immediately so that they could save these precious puppies.

    “Thanks to the kindness of rescue folks and social media, these innocent puppies were not drowned. They will be fed, cared for, spayed and neutered and eventually adopted out at the ranch,” she said.

    What an amazing mama dog to take in the others as her own. Thanks to her, there’s a happy ending for all! 🙂

    Grandpa Takes Dog To Furniture Store To Make Sure She Approves Of New Chair

    Once upon a time, Aleecia Dahl’s grandpa didn’t even want a dog. But that all changed when Coco entered his life. Now they’re inseparable best friends, and what Grandpa did when he needed to get a new chair proves just that! 😀

    Aleecia Dahl

    When Grandpa and Coco aren’t out on the town together, they’re at home relaxing in their favorite chair. But that chair eventually broke down and needed to be retired. When shopping for a new one, Grandpa had to make sure the dog liked it too!

    The footrest on the lounge chair would have to be big enough to accommodate his furry pal, and there was only one way to be sure of that…

    Aleecia Dahl

    So he took Coco along to the furniture store to try them out! Together, they were able to easily identify a new favorite chair. Here’s to many more days of two best friends hanging out and lounging around! 🙂

    Baron, Australia’s Biggest Dog, Thinks He’s A Lap Dog

    Baron the English Mastiff is Australia’s biggest dog but doesn’t quite realize just how big he is. Despite his size, he’s very gentle and insists on being a lap dog! 😀

    Baron stands at 6’6″ and weighs in at 250 pounds. He eats $200 worth of food each week.

    Despite his size, he insists on being a lap dog! Owner Mark York doesn’t mind… too much. 😉

    Facebook/Baron the olde English Mastiff

    Baron would work on becoming a therapy dog for schools and hospitals.

    Facebook/Baron the olde English Mastiff

    The craziest thing? He wasn’t done growing here. At the time, he was only two years old and would continue growing until he’s about four!

    Dog Seen Covered In Snow In An Open Truck Bed Driving Down The Road

    While driving down a road in Denver on a snowy day, someone snapped a photo that has taken social media by storm and amassed a lot of criticism, and rightfully so in our eyes. In the back of a truck bed was a dog covered in snow with the tailgate down.

    Authorities say it’s legal to have a dog in the back of a truck even with an unsecured tailgate, but this situation could be considered animal cruelty.

    “The law is not cut and dry on this but the driver could be cited with a violation of animal cruelty if there was enough evidence,” the Colorado State Patrol said in a statement. The wind chill, dog breed, and the dog’s appearance would all be taken into account.

    While a Malamute can withstand extreme cold better than average dogs, the temperature at the time of the incident showed 16-degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill of 0-degrees putting the dog at risk of frostbite. And in the back of a truck going nearly 50 mph, it most certainly felt even colder than that.

    It’s unclear how long the dog was in the back of the truck, and State Patrol says it’s ultimately a judgement call by troopers or officers to determine whether or not it is animal cruelty.

    Thief Breaks Into Animal Rescue And Steals $750 Worth Of Dog And Cat Food

    On a Sunday morning, the staff at Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire showed up to a very sad sight. The shelter had been broken into, and all of the pet food was gone. They estimate 65 bags (about $750 worth) of donated cat food and dog food was stolen.

    The thief was caught on camera, and they shared the surveillance video hoping he would be identified.

    The donated pet food is distributed by the shelter to food pantries and people struggling to make ends meet. How someone could steal from the needy is just beyond comprehension.

    Only one small bag of cat food remained.

    But the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire posted a press release on Facebook, and that’s when things started to take a turn for the better.

    Before their story could even hit the local news, cars were lining up in the parking lot with donations!

    “The community response was amazing,” Monica Zulauf (president and CEO) told The Dodo. “It was a steady stream of everything — from toddlers carrying little bags of cat treats to families who had picked up full bags of pet food.”

    Situations like this show the power of social media and the loving side of humanity. For every thief, there are so many more people willing to give unselfishly. It’s amazing to know that the people and pets who need the food will get it.

    And the shelter said the food donations kept on rolling in!

    There are always other ways to donate or help out, not only to the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire, but at your local shelters as well. 🙂

    “You look confused. We’ll try this again after nap time.” 😛

    And don’t forget the most important step: repeat, repeat, repeat! 😀

    Boy Who Gets Bullied At School Comes Home One Day To A Puppy

    A little boy named Jensen Stuart has had trouble getting bullied at school. So to do something special for him, his grandparents decided to surprise him one day with a puppy! Jensen comes through the door, and grandpa directs him over to the box on the floor.

    When the boy opens the box and stares into the pup’s eyes, he can’t believe it. For a moment at least, all is well in the world.

    “I am Jensen, your bestest friend now,” he says to the pup in an introduction. When asked what he wants to name the dog, the boy exclaims “Buddy the Elf!” 😀

    We hope Jensen’s life can get to a place where it’s full of nothing but this kind of love and joy.

    Pittie Puppy Found At A Construction Site Would Blossom Into A Social Butterfly

    This Pittie puppy was found abandoned at a construction site weighing less than 2 pounds, and he wasn’t doing too well. Love Leo Rescue took him in to give him the care he needed, and it soon became very obvious he was a big people person (errr, dog)! 😉

    Carl was so sweet and friendly and started getting better over the next few days against all odds. And then one day, he found himself well enough to go on to his foster home! He made friends with all of his foster siblings as adoption requests poured in.

    As quite the social butterfly who loves all the attention he can get, he found the perfect forever mom! He gets to go to work with her and make new friends almost daily. The now five-month-old pit bull is a great ambassador for the breed and dogs like himself! 🙂
