If your best friend is a dog, you already know how kind and loving they can be. But Lana, an adorable puppy who lives in Brazil, has taken this a step further, and this may be due to the hardships she faced before being rescued.
Early on, Lana was homeless until she and her siblings were rescued, Happiest reports. Then she was adopted by Suelen Schaumloeffel and life is pretty comfy right now.
Did Lana Know This Dog Was Cold?
Perhaps this beautiful dog remembers those dark days because she did something quite remarkable. She extended a helping paw to a dog living on the street in front of her home. It’s hard to imagine Brazil being chilly, but some parts of the country do get very cold.
Suelen padded the jet black pup’s doghouse with a soft, thick blanket to protect her against the cold night.
The next morning, Suelen’s fiance stepped outside to leave for work. When he did, he found something quite surprising, The Dodo notes.
The cute pooch dragged her blanket out of her doghouse to share it with her homeless friend.
Schaumloeffel said she didn’t know if the dog was a stray because it would run away whenever she tried to approach so she could check to see if it had an ID tag. She added the dog was hanging around the house the day before. Lana and the pooch turned into fast puppy-dog friends, however.
“I thought ‘how beautiful what she did for her friend,'” Schaumloeffel told The Dodo. “My best four-legged friend reminded me of something so important: generosity.”
Since then Schaumloeffel and her fiance have been trying to rescue the pooch, but he timidly darts away when they try to catch him. If he’s lost, they hope to find his owners or adopt him if he’s truly a stray. In the meantime, they continue leaving food and water out for him. After all, Suelen said, Lana would do that if she could.
“She is the nicest little dog I’ve ever met,” she said. “We forget sometimes the difference we can make in someone’s life but she has reminded me of this.”
