Starving Dog who Collapsed in Stranger’s Garage Shown Love He Never Got


Meet Ruger. He wandered into a Greenville, Tennessee woman’s garage in late November and collapsed. The severely emaciated dog was on his last legs and would not have survived the night if the kind-hearted woman hadn’t acted quickly and contacted Bright Hope Animal Rescue for help.

Jason and Amanda Hopson, who run the rescue, immediately drove out and took Ruger home. Over the next few hours it was touch-and-go. They even thought he had died at one point.

“He was cold, he was almost hard, just petting a skeleton with hair on it,” Jason Hopson told WBIR News at the time.

In the middle of the night, they rushed him to the Animal Medical Center of Greeneville and tests revealed he was beginning to bloat. Emergency surgery would need to be performed, but doctors gave him just a 20% chance of surviving given his condition.

Is Peanut Butter Good for Dogs?

Is Peanut Butter Good for Dogs?

Peanut butter can be a great treat for dogs as long as it follows these safe nutritional guidelines.

Yes, dogs can have peanut butter. In fact, it can be a great incentive for dogs who are learning commands. You can give it as a bath time distraction or a “just-because-I-love-you” treat.

Peanut butter is an unprocessed food; it’s essentially roasted peanuts ground into a thick paste. It’s a great source of protein, vitamins B6, B3 and E, and minerals such as manganese and copper. It also contains antioxidants and resveratrol.

But, it’s nutrient dense. It’s high in calories with unbalanced omegas. It should only be given occasionally and not as a meal replacement.

Why do dogs like peanut butter?

There’s no real answer to why dogs like peanut butter. Dogs thrive on protein-rich foods and peanut butter is one that’s easy – and fun – to eat. Dogs are just like us and like salty, sweet and fatty food. Minimally processed peanut butter has natural sodium, sugars and fats.

Dogs also eat with their noses. So, perhaps it just smells too yummy to pass up. Maybe, it’s just fun to eat and not at all like kibble. In any case, you need to be careful when treating your dog to peanut butter. It’s safe for dogs to consume but you must read the label.

Faithful Dog Dies Next To His Owner’s Grave After Living There For 11 Years


A loyal dog’s faithful vigil by his owner’s grave has come to an end after 11 years. The dog named Capitan touched the hearts of millions around the world when his story came out several years ago.

The dog began living at the cemeteryafter his owner, Miguel Guzman passed away in 2006 and would sleep at the man’s graveside every night. Touchingly, Capitan died peacefully at his human’s graveside at age 15. He passed away due to kidney failure.

Capitan’s remarkable story of loyalty began on March 24, 2006, when Miguel died. As soon as Capit├ín realized Miguel was no longer at home, he left to search for him and miraculously managed to find Miguel’s grave in the nearby Municipal Cemetery of Villa Carlos Paz in Cordoba, Argentina.

Since that time, the dog stayed by his deceased owner’s side. Every day at 6pm, Capitan would lay by Miguel’s headstone.

Miguel had brought Capit├ín, a German Shepherd mix, home as a surprise for his son Dami├ín in 2005. His wife Veronica told La Voz that when Capit├ín disappeared just after her husband’s death, she and her son searched for him, but were unable to find him. They thought he may have died or been adopted by another family.

Sick Baby Elephant Rejected By His Herd Loses Interest In Life, But Then He Meets A Dog


The odds were stacked against Ellie the baby elephant surviving after he was rescued by Karen Trendler and the staff at Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage in South Africa. He had been rejected by his herd and was critically ill.

The calf had a large umbilical abscess and septicemia. As his caregivers worked around the clock to nurse him, they realized they had another challenge…he was intolerant to milk. The team battled around the clock to keep this special baby alive.

Ellie pulled through, but elephants are social animals and need friends. Ellie would need more than just his sickness healed if he was going to survive. That’s when the rescue group introduced Ellie to Duma, a German Shepherd and something miraculous happened.

Thanks to Duma, Ellie has started to get an interest in life again!
