9.A Retrieval Dog Saves 27 People from Drowning.

Swansea Jack was a cut above the rest of the retrievers in terms of swimming ability. During the 1930s, Jack, a black retriever, lived with his owner near the River Tawe in Wales. This tenacious pup earned the title “hero” after rescuing a drowning boy in the river and pulling him to shore by the scruff of his neck.

One heroic feat is more than most dogs achieve in their lifetimes, but for Jack, this was only the beginning. This fearless swimmer saved at least 27 people from the dangerous river over the course of a decade! Jack’s efforts were recognized with a silver collar from the local council, a Silver Cup from the mayor of London, and two bronze medals from the National Canine Defense League.

Jack is commemorated with a statue at St. Helen’s Rugby Ground, and he was named “Dog of the Century” by the Newfound Friends of Bristol in 2000.

Dasher, a wonderful German Shepherd, lives in Mildura, Australia. Dasher earned the title of hero as a seven-month-old puppy. During a storm, the dog spent more than 14 hours in a forest protecting his owners’ child.

Dasher was the only one who noticed when two-year-old Dante Berry walked out of the family. The child ran around aimlessly, but luckily, his faithful companion followed close behind him. They eventually got lost in the forest about 1.8 miles (3 kilometers) from home. It took a long time for Dante’s parents to realize their child had gone missing. They called the cops and began searching for Dante everywhere, but a terrible storm struck that night. It slowed traffic on the roads, and the search was postponed until the weather improved.

Dante and Dasher were discovered in the forest the next morning, 15 hours after the child had gone missing. The fortunate child was free of any blemishes. Dasher shielded Dante from predators and helped him weather the storm.

This photograph was taken at the moment when mother and child reunited. The woman stated that she was not surprised by the dog’s behavior because he had always been their steadfast protector.

Rademenes is the name of the black cat in the photo. He arrived at a Polish animal shelter in 2014 with a severe upper respiratory tract disease that caused him excruciating pain. His owners had brought him in to be euthanized, but the doctors thought to save him.

To everyone’s surprise, the cheerful cat recovered quickly. Furthermore, after overcoming the disease, the cat began to care for other animals at the rehabilitation center, earning the nickname “nurse.” Rademenes hugs the other fluffy patients, warming them up as they rest and recover, and licks their ears on occasion.

The cat-nurse is now nearly a full-time employee of the shelter. It is said that animals under Rademenes’ care recover much faster. Isn’t it amazing what can be accomplished by extending a little kindness?

 1.Romeo, the Amiable Wolf

10 Surprising Animal Stories That Will Touch Your Heart

Nick Jans is a photographer and author who has spent many years observing wildlife and is well-versed in nature’s ways. When a lone black wolf appeared near his porch in Juneau, Alaska, one winter evening and his dog went out to meet it, he had no idea what would happen next. The two animals did not attack each other, but instead began to play.

The wolf quickly became a regular and was given the name Romeo. Other locals began to bring their own dogs to play with the wolf as well. Romeo eventually began to interact with humans, playing fetch, accompanying skiers, or simply lying down in the sun with them.

This unprecedented relationship lasted six years and served as the inspiration for Nick Jans’ novel A Wolf Called Romeo. Romeo, sadly, died too soon: he was shot by poachers from another state. But his memory lives on in the town. There’s even a special plaque dedicated to the friendly wolf.
