When a beloved pet goes missing, it’s always a sad and frightening experience for the owners. However, in the case of the Krier family, it turned out to be a hilarious and extraordinary experience.
Kyle Krier said he let the family dog, Bo, out of the home to go to the bathroom but the dog never came back home. Their family’s property in Kansas is surrounded by open fields, so they assumed that Bo went out just to explore around. He didn’t come home that night, and that made them worried.
Sometimes, Christmas comes early. At a California animal shelter , one pit bull puppy got the second chance at life he so desperately needed.

Monte, a 2-year-old terrier mix, was at HALO Animal Rescue in Phoenix with hundreds of other dogs.

While 23-year-old Amarildo Silva was working at a local supermarket, he was trying to figure out how to use his creativity and artistic ambitions to make something useful out of discarded materials.

A high school in Virginia has done something truly awesome. Alpha, a 4-year-old service dog who attends school every day with his human, Andrew “A.J.” Schalk, had his own photo in Stafford High School’s yearbook.
Alpha’s job is to detect when AJ’s blood sugar is getting too low or too high and to instantly alert him, because he is diabetic
89-year-old Maisie Green from the UK has knitted over 450 blankets to help dogs at the shelter stay warm during the cold nights they spend in kennels.
A couple of years ago, a dog shelter in England called Dogs Trust started an initiative asking people to knit dog coats.
