Story 1 – Protecting the Owner
This story is from Brazil, one fine day owner took his dog out for exercise in a field and was attacked by robbers and tried to rob him they hit him on the head that’s when the dog went into action, jumping up to attack the robbers and made them flee from the sight.

Story 2 – Waiting is never-ending
Humans are sometimes heartless. Just because their dog has turned old and is now facing health issues, they just abandon the poor animal and leave him to die. But then, dogs are incredibly loyal.
It is a story of a dog from Japan; his owner abandoned him as he became old. However, this dog waited for 2 years for his owner to return! It was the rainy season, and this dog used to come again and again at the owner’s house and wait for the owner to let him in, but it didn’t happen for him, and the poor dog ended dying on the streets.

But then he recovered and emerged as a top dog in elite bomb- and drug-sniffing for West Bengal police. Given picture is an actual photo of a dog during a drill at bomb squad campus, West Bengal.

It is a story of Leo, who saved the life of a 10-year old girl when a much larger dog attacked her. Leo threw himself in the fight and tried his best to keep the girl from a giant dog that was biting the kid. Sadly Leo died of injuries he sustained during the conflict.
