    Shelter Dog Thanks Rescuer By Offering A Paw During Her Freedom Ride

    A dog named Regan found herself at the shelter after her owner died, and suddenly the world was one big scary place. She was so lonely, but thankfully it wouldn’t be long until she had a faithful companion by her side once more.

    “So this girl’s person died and she found herself homeless,” said Kim Mozena Rezac, founder of Goofy Foot Dog Rescue. “She was in our shelter for a couple days and I felt sorry for her so I brought her home. How sweet is she?????”

    On her freedom ride, Regan thanked her rescuer by extending a paw from her spot in the passenger seat. It’s as if she knew exactly what was going on.

    “I think she felt secure in touching someone familiar,” Kim Mozena Rezac told TODAY. “She was so nervous and scared in the shelter but as soon as she jumped into my car she seemed so grateful.”

    And to top it all off, Regan is already in a foster home! Her foster parents intend to adopt the four-year-old sweetie if things keep going well. In fact, her foster dad thinks of Regan as “his Valentine’s Day present” according to Kim.

    Isn’t this just the most adorable story? We’re so happy Regan has found some hands to hold as the next chapter of her life plays out. πŸ™‚

    Badly Injured Dog Hides In A Stranger’s House To Die, Has Life-Altering Moment With Rescuers

    A badly injured street dog took refuge in a stranger’s home, and Animal Aid Unlimited showed up to save the day. The dog needed urgent care, so they worked as quickly as possible. Rescuers tried to give him some snacks to make friends with him, but the dog was so trusting despite his pain.

    They rushed Jupiter back to the facilities to begin the healing. Even a wound this size could be healed with treatments, but this one would take many weeks. Staff cleaned it out, added medicine, and bandaged it up real nice.

    The team spent weeks treating and nurturing the sweet boy and even held him as he ate. Without this rescue, Jupiter probably would’ve stayed hidden until he died. Thankfully, that was not the case.

    Meet Jupiter today! He’s completely healed up and full of life, and it’s all thanks to the hard work by Animal Aid Unlimited. If you’d like to donate to the cause and help them out, you can do so here.

    Watch the incredible rescue in its entirety below. πŸ™‚

    Rescuer Never Dreamed Scary-Looking Street Dog Would End Up So Beautiful

    A little dog named Frodo was found all alone on the streets, and it’s hard to imagine what his life had been like. Extremely neglected, he was a little tough to look at. But who would’ve thought all it would take was a little bit of love to provide the dog with a complete makeover.

    Some Good Samaritans found the dog wandering the streets of Croatia and got him the help he needed in veteran animal rescuer Klaudija Sigurnjak. And for someone who has seen it all when it comes to rescues, even she was taken aback. Frodo’s eyes were swollen, and he was emaciated and riddled with mange giving him a “scary” look.

    It was hard for Klaudija to even believe it was a dog. She’d never seen anything like it and immediately set about rescuing him. Little did Frodo know his life was about to change forever.

    Klaudija offered food and became friends with him. And then she was able to get Frodo the care he needed. A veterinary vision specialist determined the dog’s infected right eye would have to be removed, but his left eye could be saved. But the pup still had many other issues.

    They were unsure whether the emaciated dog would survive, but Frodo turned out to be a fighter!

    In the following weeks and months, Frodo regained some strength and started to recover. An amazing transformation was underway.

    The dog’s inflamed skin began to heal, and his fur was all coming back!

    As Frodo’s body healed, his true spirit and sweet personality emerged. It was clear the dog had put his painful past behind him.

    The little dog could finally be a puppy and not a helpless stray trying to survive on his own. Klaudija couldn’t believe Frodo’s transformation and never dreamed he could be so beautiful.

    And Frodo’s life was about to change for the better once more. He was put up for adoption after his recovery, and that’s when a couple spotted his photo and had to have him.

    Marko Duspara and his wife fell in love with Frodo right away. The dog’s story inspired them, and they are thrilled to be able to provide him with the life he deserves.

    Just look at him now! A special thanks to everyone who had a hand in giving this dog exactly what he needed: a little bit of love.

    Blind Senior Pit Bull Is Cut Free Signaling The Beginning Of The Life He’s Always Wanted

    Hope For Paws received a call about a blind senior pit bull who wandered into a junkyard. An employee provided him with some food and water and begged for a rescue before her boss called animal control. When they arrived, they couldn’t believe the shape the poor thing was in.

    Lisa Arturo and JoAnn Wiltz tried feeding and befriending him, and they noticed the years of neglect on the dog. Duncan’s nails were very long, he was super dirty and had bad teeth. They tried pulling him out from his hiding place, but a raggedy rope kept him in place. They cut it off signaling his new life of freedom and love.

    After everything this dog had been through in life, he wasn’t about to fight the rescuers. He cooperated with everything they did and allowed them to pick him up and place him in the vehicle. He was taken back for medical help and a bath, and that’s where they noticed his laundry list of issues; he was blind, suffering from dehydration, had periodontal disease, corneal ulcers, two mass cell tumors, and a skin infection.

    A bath revealed Duncan’s natural color, and medical help went a long way to fix his problems. He still needs time to heal and plenty of rest, but this boy is enjoying life in his foster home! No one knows how much time he has left, but Duncan deserves to have the forever home he’s always wanted.

    Don’t Tell This Puppy ‘No’ Unless You Want To See An Unbearably Cute Temper Tantrum

    Napoleon the tiny mixed-breed puppy throws the most adorable temper tantrum when his foster mom doesn’t let him sit on her lap. How does she not give in? I’m melting over here!

    With the video receiving so many views, Southern Indiana Animal Rescue addressed some questions about Napoleon:

    “Napoleon has noooooo idea how famous he is becoming after his video receiving 157K views and counting!!! For one, he can’t read, and two, we haven’t told him. His head is already big enough. πŸ˜›

    Since we have received so many questions regarding this handsome little guy we thought we would tell you a few fun facts about him…

    1. We have no idea what breed he is. He came to the rescue with no litter mates and no mama or daddy. We think he may be mixed with corgi and may end up in the 20-25 pound range as an adult.

    2. He has a medical condition called megaesophagus. He is currently on 2 different motility medications. This may be temporary or it may not. Only time will tell. His food must be watered down into a gruel-like mush and he must eat with his bowl elevated. Once we get an idea of how big he is we hope to get a Bailey Chair for him.

    3. His veterinarian also believes that he may have dwarfism based on his stubby appearance. Since there isn’t really a test to diagnose this condition, we just have to wait and see how he grows and if any other medical issues arise.

    4. Due to Napoleon’s medical condition we aren’t accepting applications at this time. Our main focus is to make sure his condition can be manageable and that he is healthy. Right now we have to be extremely careful that he doesn’t accidentally eat any type of dry dog food, get a hold of any treats and we also have to make sure that there is no chance that he could get a hold of any human food that may fall to the floor. His foster mom is constantly keeping a watchful eye on him. One wrong move could cause him choke very badly.

    …so for now we hope you enjoy his video and we will try to keep everyone updated when we can.”

    Lonely Street Dog Tried Following People Home, But They’d Kick Him

    Scribble was found wandering the streets of Manenberg in South Africa where the homeless dog population is out of control. Not wanting to be like the others, this sweet little guy would try following people home. It was the only way he knew to try to get their attention, and he wanted a home more than anything.

    As adorable as it may seem to turn around and see a cute dog wanting to come home with you, apparently some people didn’t like it. When Scribble was rescued by Sidewalk Specials and taken in for a checkup, Vet Point determined his limp was from people kicking him.

    Things were finally about to look up for Scribble. Hill’s Nutrition and the Expresso Morning Show wanted to meet him and bring him on TV! The big lights were a little scary for him, but he enjoyed meeting all of the people. πŸ™‚

    And the best part of Scribble’s story? A family in Johannesburg saw him and just had to have him! So the dog boarded a plane and made his way to his forever home. Thanks to the Expresso Morning Show and Hill’s Pet Nutrition for giving him his 15 minutes of fame and Sidewalk Specials for their amazing work in helping this good boy find the life he’s always deserved.
