1. Through the good and bad, a dog will never leave their soldier’s side.
You might be surprised to learn that it’s not just humans that can get drunk. Many different animals can get a little tipsy after enjoying some bad fruit or flower nectar. Below you’ll discover some of the most common creatures to get drunk and the side effects that come with it.
A loyal dog in Greece recently melted the hearts of millions around the world after it was reported that it has spent the last 18 months at a roadside shrine where his owner tragically lost his life in a traffic accident.
Nicknamed the “Greek Hachiko” as a reference to the Japanese dog that famously waited for its owner, Hidesaburō Ueno, at Shibuya Station in Tokyo every day – even after his death in 1925, turning up as usual until his own death almost 10 years later, the unnamed white dog has reportedly been living at a roadside shrine near the Greek town of Nafpaktos for the last year and a half. Despite several the efforts of several locals to adopt the dog, he keeps escaping and always returns to the place where his owner lost his life in a car crash.
Cala was a guard dog at a mechanic’s shop near San Jose, Costa Rica. The mechanic never took her to the vet when she got sick, nor did he feed her on a daily basis. She was malnourished to the point where she couldn’t stand on her own feet and when she sat down, the short chain around her neck kept her from putting her head on the floor.
A heartbreaking story surfaced about a man in Indiana that brought his two senior dogs, Cosmo a lab-mix and Sam a pointer, to the vet to be euthanized. Both dogs were happy and healthy. The dogs had lived with the man for 10 years, but he was now abandoning them. The reason he gave was he was moving in with his girlfriend and she was allergic to the dogs. So instead of going to a shelter to surrender the dogs, he thought “convenience euthanasia” was the answer.
A man recently dropped his dog off at the Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Conroe, Texas — but the reason he did so left the internet aghast.
The man claimed his dog was too affectionate and that she “always wants to be by my side.”
To be fair, there were a couple of other reasons for bringing her back; the man said the dog chewed up part of his couch, a baseboard, and a cushion. But taking Jubilee back to the shelter was honestly the nicest thing he could’ve done for her. The dog had some anxiety issues that needed to be worked on, and he obviously wasn’t the person who’d be able to help her with that.
A 75-year-old man visits a local animal shelter every day so he can enjoy “brushing cats” while often falling asleep on the job and napping with the felines.
Terry Lauerman decided one day to introduce himself to a local Green Bay-area animal sanctuary, telling the folks at Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary Inc. that he likes to brush cats.
According to Elizabeth Feldhausen, the founder of Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary, “He just walked in and started brushing,” noting that he never asked to be a volunteer. “So eventually we told him he was an official volunteer and had him fill out our volunteer form.”
The shelter, which opened in 2016, rescues cats with disabilities that would be at risk of euthanasia at other facilities.
When Janine Guido, founder of Speranza Animal Rescue, saw Watson, she could tell the dog was not only exhausted, but that he was ready to die.
Watson had been found by a good samaritan who found him wandering around in a local park. The pit bull was emaciated, covered in sores and had a large cancerous tumor on his hind leg. It was clear that this dog had been suffering, and had been left uncared for, for a long time and sadly, the cancer had spread and no treatment was going to cure him.
Guido had a feeling that Watson did not have much time left, so she made the decision to stay with him when he returned to the shelter from the emergency vet.
“He looked exhausted — like he was ready to give up the fight.”
A puppy who had part of his face blown off after abusers allegedly placed a firecracker in his mouth, has now undergone reconstructive surgery on his jaw.
The one-year-old pup, known as Braveheart, was found in Sonora, Mexico, by an animal rescue team that contacted the Saving Huey Foundation to adopt him following his surgery. The damage caused by the firecracker was so extensive that he now has a prosthetic jaw. Needless to say, he was extremely lucky to survive the attack.
Horrific images of an emaciated elephant who is forced to entertain people despite her frail body have emerged.
70-year-old elephant Tikiiri is one of 60 elephants who is made to work for 10 consecutive nights at the Perahera Festival in Sri Lanka.
The photos from the Save Elephant Foundation in Chiang Mai reveal how Tikiiri’s gaunt body, with all her ribs on show, is carefully hidden under a garish costume.
