After Mexico City, Mexico experienced a whopping 7.1-magnitude earthquake on Tuesday, members of the military and others have been working together to rescue as many people as they can. Tragically, 200 people have been killed so far, but many others are being rescued by heroes who seek out survivors in the rubble.
When it's time to go to sleep, Captain the dog has an assortment of comfy beds to choose from. But, when bedtime rolls around, Captian chooses to sleep in a cardboard box. According to the Detroit Dog Rescue, where Captain was taken in last November, the cardboard box "is the only way he'll sleep because it's the only way he's ever slept to feel safe."
A man in Texas was caught on video abandoning a dog on the side of the road at a known dumping site before driving off.
The man, identified as George Spears, pulled his car over to the side of the road, got out and opened his back door before grabbing a rope to pull the dog out of the car. When the dog gets out of the car, he ditches the rope, gets back in his car and then quickly drives off.
Loyal and brave K-9 Officer Hunter served a decade with his human partner Michael D'Aresta at the Middletown Police Department in Connecticut.
Hunter's time on the force came to a sudden stop when he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer.
"K9 Hunter has been ill for that past several days and when tests were conducted they revealed that K9 Hunter has a very aggressive form of Liver cancer. They unfortunately recommended that he be euthanized," the Middletown Police Department wrote in a Facebook post.
The diagnosis was heartbreaking for everyone on the force, particularly Hunter's partner Michael D'Aresta, who had formed such a special bond with his canine friend and was faced with the heartbreaking decision to put Hunter to sleep.
D'Aresta carried the dog in his arms as he received one last salute from his fellow officers. D'Aresta and the rest of the police department wanted the pup to know just how much they love and care for him on his last day on earth.
Rest in peace Officer Hunter.
