Passers-By Form Human Chain To Rescue Dog From A Reservoir

7 years ago

We can all agree that dogs are truly man’s best friend and there is nothing new about that. This lucky dog was saved from drowning in the water reservoir thanks to the kind act of kindness of Almaty residents who joined forces to save a dog. This amazing footage occurred on May 30, 2016, in Almaty, Kazakhstan when residents teamed up and carried out an inspiring operation to rescue a dog that has fallen into the water reservoir.

One man wades through the water to retrieve the dog and then five other people clutch hands together and pull the man and dog up the steep wall into safety. Dogs often do simple things that put a big smile on our faces. Dogs deserve this kind of good treatment and kind deeds. This amazing video is truly inspiring because of the great team work. Undoubtedly this video should be used as the perfect example that humans should get along with animals and be kind and loving. Even if it is short, this video is a clear proof that some people still have kind hearts and appreciate the existence of these loving animals.

Not all dogs are lucky like this one. There are some regions in the world, particularly Yulin, China, where dogs are being served as a meal or even killed and tortured just for the sake of tradition and obsolete beliefs. We should all strive to become a better person and do random acts of kindness whenever possible.

When on the topic of saving man's best friends, take a look at the following video of a cute poodle rescued just hours before ruthanasia!

It is a terrible thing to think about, which is probably why most choose to look the other way, but there are so many animals at shelters that, if they do not find forever homes, have to be euthanized. It is the cruel truth of the world, which is why veterinarians and activists implore pet owners to neuter and spay their pets so that there would be less unfortunate homeless animals on the streets.

Still, Eldad Hagar and his tireless rescue team at Hope For Paws do everything they can to save strays from this fate. When they heard about a dog named Edie who was just an hour away from being put down, they knew they had to move — and quick. But they didn’t get there quickly enough, because what they found was nothing short than a horror story.

They found the Maltese poodle mix in a high-kill shelter just an hour before she was scheduled for euthanasia. The reason - Edie was absolutely terrified of human contact. The team speculates that the white matted pooch might have been terribly molested in her past, making her fear even the sight of a human being.

That did not deter Eldad from his intentions to calm down the scared puppy and show her that there are kind spirits in this world that can love her the way she deserves. It didn’t take long for Edie to trust Eldad, so she lay on her back and let him scratch her tummy while wagging her tail, which is a true victory.

One grooming session later and the dirty fur came down to reveal a beautiful puppy underneath, just begging for some TLC.

Everything can be scary at the shelter when you weigh mere 10 pounds. Hope For Paws begs you not to overlook these animals when you are at a shelter, looking for a furry companion because all they need is a little hug!
