Rescued Dog Shares His Blanket With Homeless Dog on Cold Night
Suelen Schaumloeffel of Brazil was pleasantly surprised to find that her recently-adopted puppy had a heart of gold. On a chilly Tuesday morning, she and her fiancé were heading out to work when they spotted a picture-perfect act of kindness by their eight-month-old rescue dog, Lana. She was lying on her warm blanket while a stray dog was lying on the other half of the blanket on the other side of their home’s gate.
Although it has already been a couple of months since Lana was rescued together with the rest of her litter, apparently her memory of how hard life on the streets of Brazil still remained fresh.
Schaumloeffel said that it has been cold the past days and since they let their rescued dog sleep in an outdoor dog house, they bought a thick blanket to keep her warm.
The night before their heartwarming discovery, Schaumloeffel made sure to tuck Lana in bed, not knowing that Lana would soon sneak out of her warm doghouse, drag her blanket out and share it with a stray dog just outside the gate.
Schaumloeffel shared: “I thought, How beautiful that she did that for her friend. My best four-legged friend reminded me of something so important: generosity!”
It was certainly a beautiful moment for the dog owner, who further said: “She is the nicest little dog I’ve ever met. We forget sometimes the difference we can make in someone’s life. She reminded me of this.” She further adds: “Lana teaches about love and gratitude every day.”
Since touching image was posted on Facebook, more than 25,000 users have shared it. It has also garnered over 6,000 positive comments about how inspiring animals can be.
Today, Schaumloeffel says she’s has been trying to feed the stray dog but the poor creature immediately runs away whenever she approaches. Still, she continues to leave food for him just outside of the gate and is in the process of finding him a forever home.
