Word is among cat lovers that you don’t choose a cat, it chooses you!

Cats can be excellent judge of character and this feral toyger proved just that! Leo was a street cat that has always known what he wants. Roaming the streets of Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, all the cat wanted was to find a warm and loving home. But it isn’t easy for the cats on this Turkish city’s streets. So instead of waiting to be rescued, he took matters into his own hands. When an animal rescuer came to feed him like she usually does, the cat decided that he will not be staying on the street in Ankara no more. He climbed the hood of rescuers red FIAT car and went straight inside through the open window on the driver’s side. The cat then stayed with the rescuer until he got adopted!

Adorable Dancing Teacup Chihuahua Puppy Is Not Dancing At All2m42s

Adorable Dancing Teacup Chihuahua Puppy Is Not Dancing At All

Boogie Shoes, the cutest Teacup Chihuahua, always looks like he's dancing, hence the name, but he's actually shaking uncontrollably from a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia. The dog was turned into the shelter at 8 weeks old. The woman who dropped him off claimed to have found him in the WalMart parking lot in 110 degree heat in Palm Springs, California. While that may be true, the region is also known for back yard breeders. The shelter that the dog was dropped off at was Palm Spring Animal Shelter. Fortunately, it was a no-kill facility that works hard to rehabilitate and re-home even special needs dog. At first, it seemed this cute 8 week old pup was dancing, but the reality was much worse. He was shaking - his motor skills and coordination were uncontrolled. It was clear to the doctors their that he had an unknown neurological condition. For now, he was on foster watch. Alicia became his foster and eventually his adopter. Alicia took took the dog to the neurologist who confirmed their fears. He had cerebellar hypoplasia, a neurological condition in which the cerebellum or part of the brain did not fully develop in-utero. This condition could have been caused by genetics, a virus or malnutrition. The condition reveals itself at about six weeks of age and is permanent. While Boogie is otherwise a healthy pup, he will always have physical limitations. He can't walk on a leash, play catch or climb stairs. Even with these limitations, Alicia loves him just as he is. Please share this your family and friends as it is one that no one should miss!

Mom Brings Home Dying Pup To Love On Until Death, But Dog Refused To Die 3m39s

Mom Brings Home Dying Pup To Love On Until Death, But Dog Refused To Die

Humanity does not know its boundaries. When daddy’s job was relocated, his family and he needed to follow. The mom Marry and her three daughters Abby, Anna, and Alaina needed to find themselves something to keep them busy, so they found a meaningful way to spend their time - volunteering at a shelter with 4,000 dogs in Ankara, Turkey. With so many rampant dog diseases, one of the most deadly is distemper, which causes neurological damage that leads to seizures and loss of coordination. Knowing that there was nothing to do for the dogs suffering from distemper, this family decided to act as a hospice for dogs. They took in dogs that were close to death, so that they could die in a decent peaceful place and not the overcrowded shelters. One day they decided to bring home a litter of sick and dying pups. Then a miracle happened - Faith, the smallest pup, survived. Several of the dogs they took in died shortly after, but at least it was in peace and with a loving family. There was one little girl dog named “Faith” that defied all of the odds. She was the littlest one, always in a corner, but this little puppy was a real fighter. Faith shocked her family and instead of getting weaker, she began to regain her strength and weight. After months of nurturing, Faith became a happy, healthy, and very loved pooch. Now Faith is an irreplaceable member of their family so they will bring her with them back in America. Watching Faith with her new family, it is obvious that they are a match made from heaven. #miracle #adopt Please subscribe to our channel so you don't miss a single PAWsitive story! http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Catch up with PAWsitive socially!

I received a phone call from Coastal German Shepard Rescue telling me that there was a “Swimmer Pup” who was going to be euthanized unless we got to him in time. They asked me to please hurry, pick him up, and begin treatment right away. Upon seeing the little white bundle of fur, my heart just ached to get him in my arms and to safety. I held him the whole ride home. He was so still, so quiet...I was concerned that maybe he was also deaf. This little puppy had the most amazing blue eyes I had ever seen. Once we were home, I began calling the little bundle “Baby.” Baby was so still, so quiet...first thing to do was to give him a feeding of canned puppy food mixed with goat’s milk. He was a very slow eater, not a good sign. Again, he was just so still. I immediately cleaned Baby and wrapped his chest and shoulders in a soft tee shirt wrap. I made him a nice soft, warm bed surrounded by small stuffed animal toys and laid his tiny body on his side, propped up with the soft toys. He immediately looked more comfortable. I slept beside him on the couch that night in case he needed me. Once at the Vet’s office, Baby was still so quiet, I held him close. the vet came in and assessed my little bundle. He had concern written all over his face. He told me we usually euthanize puppies with Swimmers Syndrome. I said “I know.” They can’t lift up off their chest, their legs remain splayed out to the side; and they can’t lift their head off the ground. His diagnosis was that his heart was weak, his pulse was faint. He was limp and lethargic. Not a good prospect for survival. He told me I can “try” my treatments and also suggested massage. He said that maybe in 3 months he may walk; but chances are he won't . . . if he survives. I immediately thought to myself “//I will see you in 10 days” ... although I didn't say this out loud. I took Baby home and started his Acuscope Sessions right away. Low and behold! He awoke the next morning “speaking” to me...wiggling his little body even trying to lift his limbs. I just know he was asking me ..."More please...More please I feel so much better . . . I'm alive, I'm here and I'm alive! Please don't give up on me." More Acuscope Therapy Sessions were in store for that day. Yes, I began his Therapy in the morning after we came home from the Vet visit. I did a series of Acuscope Treatments to promote nerve conductivity where the nerve signals emerge from between the Vertebrae along the Spine. I attached plates to treat the back from top to bottom. Each day there is more improvement, more movement, strength and activity. It really is amazing to witness how fast a little body responds once the nerve and muscle cells are given the help they need to awaken. Casper’s journey continues. I have decided to name him Casper...for Casper the friendly ghost. He is pure white, and absolutely stunning. So beautiful. He is active now, “speaking” a lot, communicating his joy of being able to move. He was adopted shortly after this last video by a wonderful young man. We have become email friends and Instagram friends so I can follow Casper’s progress through pictures. I am also invited to visit him when I am in town. It doesn't get much better than this. Changing a pup’s life forever. Finding him his “forever home” and watching him grow and thrive and become a happy, healthy, loving companion. ***All people, locations, photos, footage and logos have been used with express written consent from all parties.***

Homeless Puppy Living Among Pigs In Thailand Gets The Chance Of A Lifetime

It is a sad truth that so many animals live day in and day out without much hope. But what do you consider a sad life that truly turns around? We think that qualifies as a miracle, don’t you? The odds were against Kanya and her siblings, who were living on the streets of Thailand. They were going through the trash for food, threatened by starvation, disease, cars and being picked up and transported to the dog meat trade. Good Samaritans found Kanya and her nine siblings, cared for them and through generous donations from K9 Aid and LIFE Animal Rescue, the Thai litter of puppies took a 17-hours-long flight to the United States, where they will no longer face such a horrible fate. Here, Kanya’s once sad life will turn into a happy one, with a new family and lots of love! She doesn’t know it yet… Even though one step closer to freedom and love, Kanya is still a bit scared, but hopeful. But soon, for Kanya, this is what true happiness looks like! With her new forever family, safe and sound, Kanya is living the good life! It doesn’t get much better than this!

Breeder was going to throw out "defective" Mastiff puppy until this happens2m52s

Breeder was going to throw out "defective" Mastiff puppy until this happens

This Neapolitan Mastiff, a purebred 4 week old puppy was about to be thrown out like trash because she was deemed "defective" but 2nd Chances Rescue raced over to save her. Full Story: Willow was born with a congenital condition called Swimmer's Syndrome. The condition means Willow was unable to stand or walk at the normal three weeks of age. Instead, her chest was flat and her legs were splayed out like a turtle "swimming." For Willow's breeder, she was considered a defect and was about to throw her out like trash but by chance he first posted a message on social media. Somehow, this message was repeatedly shared until it reached Jennifer Williams, President at 2nd Chances Rescue in Norco, California. Jenn got in the car and drove to this breeder’s home where she saw 5 healthy Neapolitan Mastiff’s running and playing - and then saw Willow who was floundering on the ground unable to keep up. These “defective” dogs are often euthanized or abandoned. Willow was in such a severe state that she could not eat or drink. Jenn immediately took Willow to Animal Acuscope Therapist, Gina Gould. Within two days, Willow took her first steps. Within months, she was running. Using a combination of binding her chest, tying her legs in the correct position, acuscope therapy and swimming, Willow has made a complete recovery. Today, eight months later, Willow is 80 lbs., rambunctious, happy and healthy. Note: A Neapolitan Mastiff puppy sells for $1,000 on the low end. From a reputable breeder, Mastiff puppies can sell as high as $3,000.

Kitten With Twisted Arms and Legs Refuses to Give Up

Pretzel and her two siblings were dumped at the shelter within hours of their birth - still covered in amniotic fluid, umbilical cords still attached but Kitten Rescue of Los Angeles, CA refused to let them die. ✿ Please subscribe to our channel so you don't miss a single PAWsitive story! ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Full Story: "It looked like someone shook up kittens parts in a can." says Laura, Pretzel's foster at Kitten Rescue based in Los Angeles, CA. Pretzel and her two siblings were born and immediately dumped at a local LA shelter. Upon seeing them, it was it was apparent one of the reasons why. They were born with serious genetic abnormalities that made just living a challenge. On the outside, their arms and legs were twisted awkwardly in making walking, in the future, impossible. The problems on the inside were not immediately discernible until the first night when one of the kittens died. Within months, Curly Sue also died of a massive heart attack. Pretzel was the lone survivor. Her will to live was strong. Her personality was no different than any other cat. She didn't care that her legs were useless and she had to crawl to reach laps. What mattered was that she got there. Today, Pretzel is living in the perfect home with a perfect Mom. Pretzel is Michelle's first cat, but she loves Pretzel so unconditionally that she wouldn't have it any other way. ✿ Follow PAWsitive on our socials: Subscribe ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Facebook ➔ http://bit.ly/PawsitiveFacebook Twitter ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveTwitter G+ ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveGooglePlus ✿ Special thanks to Kitten Rescue Website ➔ http://www.kittenrescue.org Donate ➔ http://www.kittenrescue.org/index.php/donate/ Facebook ➔ https://www.facebook.com/kittenrescue Twitter ➔ https://twitter.com/kittenrescue ✿ Crew Director: Hai-Lam Phan Producer: Dawn Poomee http://www.memetics.tv/ ✿ Music provided by Premium Beats 12_full_united-we-can_0132.wav 201_full_colors-of-the-world_0172.wav Creative Commons Attribution music by Chris Zabriskie The song was not modified in any way.

A baby goat was found near a busy street. You won't want to miss how this story ends.

From wandering the streets to being in the lap of goat luxury. #babyanimals #cute #goats Harley, the baby goat (AKA kid,) was found near a busy road and taken to animal control. When she was not claimed, the Good Samaritan who found her asked Hooves & Paws Animal Rescue, located in Little Rock, California, if they could take her. Harley is now happily living among her new family and friends at Hooves and Paws. Michele, the co-founder of the rescue, did try to reach the original owners but they did not respond. Likely, Harley was destined for the goat meat trade as denoted by the ear tag. Why she was wandering the streets remains unclear. According to Michele, she feels the owner likely dumped her because Harley is a runt and not worth the feed. Fortunately for Harley. ✿ Special thanks Hooves and Paws Animal Rescue in Little Rock, CA Website ➔ http://www.hoovesandpaws.org/ Donate ➔ http://www.hoovesandpaws.org/donate.html Facebook ➔ https://www.facebook.com/hoovespawssh... ✿ Follow PAWsitive on our socials: Subscribe ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Facebook ➔ http://bit.ly/PawsitiveFacebook Twitter ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveTwitter G+ ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveGooglePlus Website ➔ https://pawsitivestories.wordpress.com/ ✿ Crew Director: Hai-Lam Phan Producer: Dawn Poomee ✿ Music Creative Commons Attribution music by Josh Woodward "Bonjour Mon Amie" (Instrumental Version) by Josh Woodward You can download the song here: https://www.joshwoodward.com/song/Bon...

At the Vets For 9 Months with Broken Elbows4m05s

At the Vets For 9 Months with Broken Elbows

🐶 Bella is made of true grit. Two broken elbows can't keep this Pug down! Her story will inspire you. 💕 #pawsitivestories #dogs #pugs ✿ Please subscribe to our channel so you don't miss a single PAWsitive story! ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Full Story: According to Gwenn of Pug Nation, Bella looks like she's part penguin, part seal and part Pug but in truth she's all dog and just wants hugs and kisses. Bella didn't always look this way. She was likely born from breeding. Bella did have a family but they had difficulty caring for her. When she first broke her elbow her family took her to the veterinarian who was able to fix it. He told the family to keep her confined, keeping the pressure/weight off that limb. For whatever the reason, they didn't follow these instructions and she re-broke the elbow. At some point, Bella's other elbow became broken and the veterinarian decided to keep her at the hospital to keep her confined so she could heal properly. Upon further assessment, the veterinarians realized the elbows were irreparably damaged. The only solution was a double amputation. The rehabilitation, the care, the cost were all unknowns for this family. They would not give their consent nor would they relinquish Bella to the hospital. For 9 long months, Bella resided at the hospital. It is unclear what her condition was like during those 9 months but the veterinarians themselves were at an impasse. Without the consent of the family, the veterinarians could not perform additional medical procedures. Finally, a volunteer at Pug Nation took notice of Bella and inquired. The inquiry lead to the revelation of her story and immediate action. The veterinarians were able to convince the family to relinquish her to the hospital and then the hospital to the animal rescue. Bella is now 6 years old. Pug Nation was able to find a loving foster/adopter for Bella almost immediately. Wendy considers Bella's welfare her top priority. Amazingly, after everything Bella has been through, she is incredibly sweet and has no idea that she is special needs: she barks at passing cars, begs for treats, asks for cuddles and loves going on walks - albeit she only walks with two legs instead of four. She does not let two broken elbows set her back. She is fast - whether she is waddling like a seal or running on two legs. Since filming this story in September, Bella has had her double amputation surgery and is now free from pain. She is doing well. She is still with Wendy who loves her unconditionally. Stay tuned for a follow up story of Bella in her new wheelchair. ✿ Follow PAWsitive on our socials: Subscribe ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Facebook ➔ http://bit.ly/PawsitiveFacebook Twitter ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveTwitter G+ ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveGooglePlus ✿ Special thanks to Pug Nation Website ➔ http://pugnationla.org/ Donate ➔ http://pugnationla.org/donate/ Facebook ➔ https://www.facebook.com/Pug-Nation-Rescue-of-Los-Angeles-148049835236253/?ref=br_tf Twitter ➔ https://twitter.com/PugNationRescue ✿ Crew Director: Hai-Lam Phan Producer: Dawn Poomee http://www.memetics.tv/ ✿ Music "Beauty Found" by Indigo Music, Premium Beat "John Stockton Slow Drag" by Chris Zabriskie Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License The song was not modified in any way.

Homeless man gives up injured dog to the shelter who makes an incredible recovery

He told Sheba, "I love you. This is the best thing that I can do for you right now." Then he kissed her and left. #pawsitive @EastBaySPCA ✿ Please subscribe to our channel so you don't miss a single PAWsitive story! ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Full Story: A somewhat disheveled man rode his bike to the East Bay SPCA located in Oakland, California. Running beside him on a leash was Sheba, a black Labrador/Shepherd mix. She was limping on her left front leg. While she may have been in pain, she was so good-natured that she did not show it. The man knew his dog better. He told the employees at East Bay what had happened - she had got into a dog fight. It wasn't intentional - it was an accident and now she was hurt and it was getting worse. Sheba's leg was bandaged but it was damp, her leg was swollen and it was starting to smell. Signs of a serious infection. He told them he could not afford the medical care for her. East Bay offered to take her in and help her but that would mean giving her up. He knelt down in front of her and said, "This is the best that I can do for you right now." He pet her, then he left. Sheba was immediately assessed and underneath the bandage were multiple fractures in the radius and ulna. To repair the injury would mean a long and potentially painful recovery. The doctors decided to amputate her leg. According to Gwen Gadd DVM, a staff veterinarian, Sheba was on the road to recovery with nothing to hold her back. Dr. Gadd was right. Gracie is now in a loving home with Cecily and her husband. Sheba, now Gracie, doesn't even realize she has three legs. She is fast.

10 Good Samaritans Refuse to Let 300 Homeless Dogs Starve and Freeze to Death

These 10 animal rescuers may have saved hundreds of street dogs but they also inspired villagers, businesses and the municipality to make a difference too. That's what I call true heroes! #adoptdontshop #rescue ✿ Please subscribe to our channel so you don't miss a single PAWsitive story! ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveSubscribe Full Story: In Ankara, Turkey adoption rates are low. People prefer to buy dogs instead of adopting them. (Çiğdemin Patileri is a Facebook page that posts about street animals in the Çiğdem neighborhood.) The make shift rescue, created by a group of people with a shared passion for animals is only 10 people. But these 10 people take care of 300 dogs and cats on a daily basis. They are feeding them, providing medical attention, sterilization, trying to find homes, even going to schools to educate students about animal rescue and welfare. They are working to make a difference in the community. They are fighting to be heard. And they have been heard. Their work has received attention as local businesses and the municipality have donated their time and efforts in creating shelters for dogs and cats. Locals are taking to helping with feeding the strays too but the group is committed to making sure every last dog in Turkey finds a home. Burcu, one of the rescuers, believes their greatest need is for a clear infrastructure when it comes to strays that just end up on the streets or in the overcrowded shelters.

Good Samaritan Walks 3 Miles to Save Dog Tied To Pole4m17s

Good Samaritan Walks 3 Miles to Save Dog Tied To Pole

Joey was tied to a pole then abandoned. An unlikely rescuer would do whatever it took to save his life. Full Story: PAWsitive Channel and Forte Animal Rescue team up to bring to light this incredible story of selflessness. Lisa Snyder had fallen on hard times when she discovered Joey, a sweet Pointer mix that was tied to a tree and abandoned in Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, CA. Lisa was living in her inoperable van with her three cats. She barely had enough to survive herself, when she came across Joey. But being an animal lover and a person of faith, she knew she had to help. Lisa called the authorities, the shelter, anyone she could think of to pick up the dog but it was late and no one could make it out. The shelter suggested she drop off the dog. Lisa set off on a three-mile walk to the animal shelter. Her various medical conditions made the walk painful and forced her walk to slow. In the rush, she had forgotten her jacket and her walking stick. What should have taken an hour took all night in the rain and cold. By morning, she had made it safely to the shelter where Joey was turned in. From there, Forte Animal Rescue stepped in and provided the medical and adoption resources to re-home Joey, who is now happy, healthy and living out the rest of his doggy days with his 4 year old best friend. The community of San Pedro heard about Lisa’s selflessness and gave her a gift of their own: a $3500 thank you.

Dog Left in Backyard to Die Rescued Just In Time2m59s

Dog Left in Backyard to Die Rescued Just In Time

Smokey's story is about a dog that was left in a backyard to slowly die from starvation and one woman who showed true heroism by dropping everything to save him. Full Story: PAWsitive Channel and Forte Animal Rescue team up to bring this inspirational story of heroism. Darlene was getting a manicure from her usual nail technician – a woman she liked and had been visiting for years. The woman told her about her son's unwanted puppy, a dog he refused to provide food, water and shelter. Darlene assumed the technician was feeding the dog when in fact Smokey was slowly being starved to death. The manicurist finally confessed that she wanted to “put the dog down" but didn't want to pay the $200 fee to do so. Darlene, an animal lover not an animal rescuer, requested a photo of the Smokey. What she saw was an emaciated, sad dog. “Something out of a concentration camp." Darlene dropped everything and went to the technician’s home where she found Smokey, who was barely able to walk and unable to even eat the food she offered. She dropped some unkind remarks to the son who couldn't care less. When Smokey was brought to the animal hospital, he was immediately put on an IV drip where he was given round the clock fluids and proper food. His blood work showed food deprivation that spanned weeks, possibly months. His digestive system was in shock. Within a month, Smokey had gained 20 lbs, going from 40 lbs to 60lbs. Forte Animal Rescue a 501 (c)(3) based in Marina del Rey, California stepped in to help Darlene with the hospital care and bills as well as to re-home Smokey. His vet bills amounted to thousands of dollars of which Darlene and the rescue took care of. Today, not even a year later, Smokey is recovered and lives in Los Angeles with a wonderful family. He is fed. He is loved. He is home.

Rescuers See What Is Wrapped Around Dog's Neck And Are Shocked

[WARNING: This video is graphic and not suitable for young children.] Paris was found wandering the streets of Karditsa, Greece with a wire wrapped tightly around his neck - so tight in fact that it created an open wound, boring a hole into his trachea and prohibiting him from eating. Paris was rescued by Ermioni a rescuer from the Greek Animal Rescue (GAR), who finally got him the help he needed. #AdoptParis Paris stills needs a home. If you are interested in adopting Paris please contact Ermioni directly on her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ermioni.gian... Full Story: Paris was only a puppy when someone put a wire around his neck. According to Ermioni, there have been instances in her town where strays or unwanted dogs are mistreated or abused. Paris was one of those dogs. When Ermioni found Paris, he was terrified of people. Paris was rushed to the vets where the wire was removed from his neck but an infection set in requiring a longer recovery. For two months, Ermioni and her GAR team of rescuers cared for Paris. When he finally received his surgery, he felt less pain and started to eat...and eat. The dog that was little more than “skin and bones” gained 20 kilos in a matter of months. There will be long lasting psychological effects of abuse he has had to endure, but with the gentle hands of Ermioni and the Greek Animal Rescue, he is recovering - one day at a time. Paris still needs a home. We are hoping with this video, we can appeal to someone somewhere in the world who will see Paris for who he truly is - a good boy that just wants someone to love him.

Woman Living 2,000 Miles Away Saves Injured Terrier Hit By Car

Laura took one look at Sophie's picture and knew she had to save her. But how? She lived in Nashville, Tennessee, and Sophie was in Downey, California over 2,000 miles away! Join Sophie's Village and help her pay off the last $275 on her bill. Together we can do anything! Call Santa Margarita Animal Care Center and tell them you'd like to donate to "Sophie's Village" (949) 858-3181 Full Story: There are incredible people living among us. People who are truly selfless and have a passion for animals. Laura is one such person. Laura who lives in Nashville, Tennessee was reading a story online about a small terrier that was hit by a car in Downey, California and left to die in the gutter when a Good Samaritan picked her up and took her to the animal shelter. Sophie was in bad shape. She had multiple pelvis fractures - she was in pain and unable to walk. Knowing that her time was limited and euthanasia was quickly becoming a reality at the understaffed and underfunded animal shelter, Laura started a mission to save her. For days Laura called, emailed, faxed over 50 animal rescues in California pleading for assistance. Not one rescue responded. Why would they when the medical care for Sophie alone would cost thousands? Many rescues themselves are consistently overwhelmed and underfunded. But one rescue saw Laura's cry for help and did call back - Abandoned Terrier Rescue Association. Janet located in California went to pick up Sophie and rushed her to the Santa Margarita Animal Care Center in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. Sophie immediately went into surgery to repair her crushed pelvis. Within weeks post-op, Sophie is not only walking - she's running. And Janet, the woman who pulled Sophie from the shelter, fostered her, ended up being her mom too. The battered and bruised terrier that was run over, left in the gutter alone now has a new family to love her and an entire village supporting her too!

Piglet becomes best friends with kitten

Master Julian has no idea that he is a pig. In fact, he thinks he's a cat! So of course he grew up with his best friend, Chairmen Meow, not realizing he looks any different than his feline friend. Full Story: According to Catherine Besch, co-founder of Vietnam Animal Aid and Rescue, Julian is an ordinary farm pig. Yes, she loves him dearly but she promises all pigs are like Julian - intelligent, affectionate and a bit naughty. Cat saw Julian and his siblings on a motorbike heading to town to be raised and within 6 months slaughtered. When she saw the piglets, she knew she could only take 1 and she made the agonizing decision and picked Julian. Master Julian lives like a king. As a piglet, he slept with his human but his BFF was Chairman Meow a stubby tailed, orange and white tabby. The piglet and the kitten grew up together. One becoming proportionately larger than the other -- but size didn't matter for these two who are still best friends 1.5 years later. Today, Master Julian is 250 lbs and sleeps on the floor. His purpose in life is to educate the Vietnamese that animals have a name, a face and in this case can also be a friend. ✿ Follow PAWsitive on our socials: Facebook ➔ http://bit.ly/PawsitiveFacebook Twitter ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveTwitter G+ ➔ http://bit.ly/PAWsitiveGooglePlus ✿ Special thanks to Vietnam Animal Aid and Rescue Website ➔ vietnampetsandvets.com Donate ➔ https://www.gofundme.com/hoianvet Facebook ➔ https://www.facebook.com/vietnamanimalaidandrescue Twitter ➔ https://twitter.com/vnanimalaid Instagram ➔ https://www.instagram.com/vietnamanimalaid/ ✿ Crew Director: Hai-Lam Phan Producer: Dawn Poomee http://www.memetics.tv/ ✿ Music provided by Creative Commons Attribution music by Josh Woodward The song was not modified in any way.
