When Her Favorite Human Returned From A Business Trip, She Was The Happiest Dog Ever

When Her Favorite Human Returned From A Business Trip, She Was The Happiest Dog Ever

If you’re at all skeptical that our pets have feelings and memories, just watch this video. When Sarah’s dad returned after being away because of work for two months, she decided to give him the fuzziest, happiest welcome home hug. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that she missed him a little bit… Looks like this guy better check his luggage next time he goes away on business, otherwise, he might find himself a slobbery stowaway. Who wouldn’t mind getting greeted like this every time they came home from work? I know I wouldn’t! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/happy-dog/

This Abused Dog Lived A Terrible Life In A Rusty Cage. Then Everything Changed.

This Abused Dog Lived A Terrible Life In A Rusty Cage. Then Everything Changed.

Dogs are man’s best friend. They love us unconditionally, and they only ask for our attention and care in return. That’s why the responsibility to protect them is so great; by entrusting us with their very lives, their well-being is completely in our hands. As the saying goes, “With great power, comes great responsibility.” But what happens when people abuse that trust, and neglect their duty. When the very people entrusted to protect them… do the opposite?  One man figured out the answer. And it couldn’t have happened at a better time. Meet Billy the Puppy, along with his personal hero, Adam. Billy was found in a puppy mill in North Carolina by Adam and The Humane Society in late 2012. The puppy mill was beyond horrible, with animals in various stages of neglect and abuse. When Adam first saw Billy, he was trapped in a rusted shut crate and […]

But did you know what puppies looked like before they were all cuddly and awesome? Me, neither. This is absolutely fascinating.

They Found A Starving Dog Tied To A Tree Behind A House, So They Decided To Rescue Him

They Found A Starving Dog Tied To A Tree Behind A House, So They Decided To Rescue Him

A couple of Good Samaritans heard about a neglected dog tied to a tree behind an abandoned house in their neighborhood. As devout animal lovers, they knew they had to bring him some food and water…they were in for a massive shock when they saw the poor dog. Not only was his chain so short that he could hardly move, but he was also near starvation — he looked like nothing but skin and bones. Watch as Ganesh instantly becomes a totally different dog once they save him and get him back to their home. If you want to help poor Ganesh get back to full health, his kind rescuers have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to take care of his medical bills. They are also trying to find him a loving home near Miami, Florida. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/ganesh-rescue/

She Can't Believe Her Mother Bought A Hamster That Looks So Much Like A Dog

She Can’t Believe Her Mother Bought A Hamster That Looks So Much Like A Dog

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); We’ve all opened up that one birthday or Christmas gift and proceeded to stare at it in bewilderment because we had absolutely no idea what it was. For me, that was the year my mother had gone the unconventional Christmas route and created a miniature gift tree that sat underneath our traditional tree and was adorned with IOUs. At any rate, it’s the thought that counts, and it ended up being the gift that kept on giving. For this little girl, she couldn’t believe her eyes when she opened up an old diaper box and found what she thought to be a tiny hamster. Despite her thrills that her mother had brought home a new pet hamster, the little girl’s mood barely changes when Mom informs her that the rodent is, in fact, a canine. Honestly, she probably would’ve been pumped either way. We all have […]

When you think of guard dogs, you probably conjure up mental images of bulldogs and pit bulls. The main objective of being a guard dog is to scare off any intruders or unwelcome visitors.

This Dog Has Found A Clever Way To Never Need Humans For Entertainment Again

For the most part, our pets rely on us for just about everything. They look to us for food, shelter, and, perhaps most importantly, affection. With that last one comes cuddling responsibilities, belly rubs, and of course, lots of games. This dog, however, has become quite independent. When Mojo’s parents stopped throwing the ball for him one day, he decided to take matters into his own paws and got pretty creative with his surroundings…just watch! Next thing you know, he might be feeding himself and heading off to a regular nine-to-five desk job. Watch out, silly humans! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/fetch-for-himself/
