It can be easy to forget that we share the planet with seemingly countless creatures of all sorts of species. Of course we pay attention to our lovable big dogs and little cats, but that seems to be the extent of it — we think of these animals as pets or zoo creatures. Instead, animals can be smart, compassionate, loving, and dangerous all at the same time. We decided to look up some animals that chose to be heroic for reasons we can’t fully understand. Listed below are 12 miraculous times that an animal decided to become the hero in order to save the day.
Therapy Dogs of Newtown.
The tragic deaths that occurred on December 14th, 2012 in Newtown will echo forever in the hearts of those that survived the event. PTSD is not just an affliction that is reserved for soldiers or warriors, it is also something for survivors to struggle with. Now there are over 70 dogs, of all ages, that work exclusively in Newton as therapeutic animals for the children and parents involved. Studies show how great it is for both the dog and the patient to exchange affection and we can’t argue with the results. A little love shared between a dog and a person who is struggling can be all that either one needs to feel a little better. If you have a dog that you think would work great in this line of employ, consider going to dog training schools for dog behavior training. You might just have an animal that can save a life.
