1. “She has a whole farm where she can sit anywhere, yet she chooses to sit on the cat time and time again.”

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.
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.
Police K9 officers are trained to be brave and to put their lives on the line in the name of duty. Sadly, K9 officer, Axe, of the St. Clair Shores Police Department in Michigan, sacrificed his own life at the hands of a gunman.
The Lakeland Manor Banquet Hall was the scene of a gunman, who was located outside the hall. Inside, 70 people came together to attend a baby shower. Someone placed a call to alert the authorities.
As they arrived on the scene, police saw who they believed to be the suspect. K9 officer Axe was released on the man. The suspect fired at the dog, and officers returned fire, hitting the perpetrator. Sadly, the dog was pronounced dead by a veterinarian. The suspect later died at a local hospital from gunshot wounds.
The loyal canine cop gave his all, starting with the department at four years of age. A nearby resident heard the sounds, thinking it might be fireworks. At this point, the case is being investigated further. The deceased man was identified as 29-year-old Theoddeus Gray of Detroit.
Life for a six-year-old Pit Bull named ‘King Zeus’ has not been easy. His past was unclear but it was evident that he suffered. His teeth were worn down and he was covered in scars.
Still, he was gentle and loving. Even hopeful that his life would take the dramatic turn he deserved and he would find a family.
While Zeus is a total love with people, he’s not great with other dogs. This was evident with a family who tried to give him a home and returned him the next day. King Zeus was returned twice to the shelter actually. He was losing hope. And so were the volunteers who adored him.
Zeus’ demeanor changed after the second time he was brought back to the shelter. He used to engage with volunteers. He used to bark happily when people passed by his kennel. But after he held out hope and was returned, he lost a part of himself. He stopped being himself. He totally stopped barking altogether. It was heartbreaking.
King Zeus was given one more chance. A nearby adoption event featured 300 animals in need of homes. His caretakers were hopeful. He’s such a good boy, surely someone would see that and he would get his happily ever after. But no, he was passed up time and time again. It didn’t help that he laid in the crate, totally removed, detached, hopeless. But who could blame him?! When all hope is lost it’s hard to hide it.
Mothers can cross any limits for their children, be it human mothers or animal mothers. And this mama Ibizan Hound named Vera proved it. She endured the unendurable for her babies and managed to touch the hearts of millions of people.
With her skeletal- skinny body and a broken leg, Vera travelled 2 miles worth of distance to get human help for her babies. She was in no way in the state of doing that, but her love for her babies was so strong that she couldn’t be stopped.
Vera limped all the way toward and back and managed to catch the attention of Lianne Powell, who followed her all along with a local vet. She had kept her pups at the back of the safety of an abandoned car. As the two humans went on to look, they were surprised to find ten beautiful puppies lying in a basket!
The vet anticipated that Vera and her pups were dumped by hunters because they were no longer of any use for them. Her leg’s break was a clean one, and it was when the hunting season had just ended.
The family was brought to the animal clinic, and all of them were safe. Vera’s leg was appropriately treated, bandaged and also re-aligned.
The caring clinic staff brought Vera’s health and strength back soon. After they all are ready, the entire family will be put up for adoption in loving homes.
