Little Girl Tries To Teach Her Great Dane To Sit For Treats And She’s Thrilled When It Works

Kids love mimicking grown-ups. Whether it’s making dinner with play food or fake vacuuming the house, it gives them a sense of pride and helps them connect to the world around them. In this video, a sweet little girl is taking after her parents as she tries to give the dog a treat and teach him how to sit on command.

We all love watching kids interact with animals. It’s like cuteness overload! But what makes this video so adorable is the interaction between her and her Great Dane who is visibly three sizes bigger than her!

No more than two years old, this sweetheart is all giggly and excited to be giving him a treat. She waves it around and says, “Sit, sit!”And of course, with Great Danes being so smart, he listens to her command and sits like a good boy.

She’s so thrilled that she can command the dog just like her mommy and daddy do. It’s instant gratification for her. Until she wants to do it again!

Kids and dogs have a special relationship. Kids nurture and entertain their dogs while dogs protect them. Seeing this toddler teach her dog is so darn cute, it will definitely make you smile!

Dog Stared Down Driveway & Wouldn’t Budge, Her Owner Saw And Called For Help

As we know, canines have heightened senses. What they can hear and see is quite remarkable but there is this other innate sense some dogs have that make a story like this one extra special. Rob Jerry and his dog Sadie came outside early one morning. They have a specific routine both of them enjoy. But as Sadie made her way down the driveway, she abruptly stopped. Then refused to move.

Rob stared back at Sadie, wondering what was going on. Her ears and body indicated something was wrong. Rob then heard something in the distance. He wasn’t sure what it was at first, but as the sounds grew louder, Rob realized that it was someone in distress.

In fact, when Rob went to investigate the noise Sadie was alerting to, he found that his elderly neighbor had fallen. Rob’s neighbor was just lying there. He went to check his mailbox and slipped. The neighbor had badly broken his hip. In such frigid temperatures and being on his own, there was no way he would have survived long.

Sadie, the Great Dane, is no ordinary dog. She saved a man’s life by telling her human, in her own special way, that someone needed her help. Because Rob was able to get to his neighbor on time, he was rushed to the hospital where he made a full recovery. We are so grateful for dogs for so many reasons. Sadie, you’re a true hero!

Soldier Saves Baby Squirrel, They Become Best Friends And Driving Companions

A Belarusian army soldier named Pyotr Pankratau found a dying baby squirrel and saved its life. He did so by nursing it back to health using milk in a syringe. But what followed was even more amazing.

He named the squirrel Masik.

When Pyotr ended up leaving the army, he brought his squirrel buddy along.

Pyotr became a taxi driver, and he had the perfect co-pilot lined up. 😉

“I took him with me everywhere. In the army, everywhere. So he got used to this. Masik has a standard route at home, too – eating, then sleeping, from the kitchen to either under the blanket or to the wardrobe. He likes to sleep with me, close to my neck. He is very independent. There are no better animals.”

“He ran away once, but I came up to the tree and he returned. Recently, I put him on a tree, and he was totally frightened and trembled all over.”

But Pyotr doesn’t always tell his passengers that there’s a squirrel in the car. “I don’t show him to everyone. I mean, what’s the point? Why disturbing him all the time? I show him to kids. However, I watch him constantly.”

But boy does Masik enjoy playing with the children!

If you’re ever in a taxi in Minsk, keep an eye out for the squirrel! 🙂

What a shocker it’d be to get in a taxi and see this little fella. What an amazing thing they have going here!

He’s Heartbroken As No One Ever Picks Him, So He Has Shut Away & Stopped Eating

Dozer, a shelter Pit Bull, has always been the life of the shelter with his goofy grins and playful antics. But the poor dog somehow ended up being rejected for years. Gradually, Dozer’s anticipating smiles turned into depressing sobs, and soon, he stopped eating entirely.

The shelter workers were worried by Dozer’s numbing shutdown. Dozer felt so unwanted that nothing would motivate him to eat a morsel. In desperation, the workers took a photo of him with a sad message, and pleaded to animal lovers on social media to help him.

The shelter’s post quickly went viral as concerned dog lovers banded together to help Dozer find a family of his own. Within a period of 2 days, the shelter was flooded with a massive amount of calls and adoption applications!

A man named John was finally picked to be the one to adopt Dozer! John had recently lost his 13-year-old Pit Bull to a heart attack, and he wanted to be Dozer’s dad more than anything else in the world.

Today, John and Dozer always stay beside each other like constant companions. We are amazed at the power of the community to turn a heartbroken dog’s misery into blissful happiness. We thank every single person who helped Dozer find a home!
