Reporter Kim Craig of 7 Action News in Detroit and her friend Sandra were on their way to help a man get ready for a job interview when they came across a dog lying near the street with his owner. The dog, named Bosco, had spent his entire life on a chain, and was being walked to his owner’s new home when he collapsed from heatstroke. But this reporter and her friend saved his life, and now he’s on the road to beginning a new one. Sunday afternoon, a friend and I were eager to meet up with a man on Detroit’s east side to help him get ready for a job interview this week. But on the way, we spotted a dog lying near the road next to his owner. We thought he’d been hit by a car. My friend, Sandra Abrahamian, and I have assisted animal rescue groups before and we thought there might

Man Worried About Wife’s Pit Bull When Baby Is Born

Given the horror stories that are routinely covered by the media, it’s easy to understand how people with no personal experiences with pit bulls could think they are all ticking time bombs. Greg Heynen was one of them.  Until he saw the amazing thing that his wife’s dog Zack did after his daughter was born… This is Greg’s story: My wife and I owned two dogs that we had owned before we met and brought into the marriage. Her dog was a pit bull/Labrador cross named Zack, and he hated me. When our daughter was born, I said to the wife, ‘If he so much as nips at the baby, he’s gone.’ We brought our daughter home in a car seat, and both dogs sniffed and licked her, tails wagging. I had to pull Zack away from her because he wouldn’t stop licking her. Zack immediately became my daughter’s p

Back in February, we told you about Vladimir Davydov, the elderly Siberian man who refused to give up the search for his German shepherd, whom he believed was stolen. It is with great sorrow that we bring you the update that Davydov has died, allegedly of a broken heart from never having found Yan. Now his friends are raising funds to honor them. His life was like a country song:  first he lost his wife, then while filing paperwork after being fired from his job as a night watchman because of a leg injury, his beloved Yan was taken. “Suddenly I heard my boy whining,” he said.  “By the time I reached the gate on my crutch, he was no longer there.  I saw only a blue car disappearing.  I asked God, ‘Let them give me back my dog.’” The 77-year-old man was devastated, but resolved to

This Video Proves We Can Learn A Whole Lot From Our Furry Companions! Can’t get enough dog videos? We can’t, either! This beautiful, well-produced video reminds us of our favorite things about dogs, and shows why they make the best friends. As soft piano music floats out of our speakers, we see gorgeous clips of dogs in slow motion illustrating a kind of video poem as written by your dog. It begins, “I may not speak, but I sure know how to listen.” The adorable dog is lying with his chin on his paws, and he perks up his ears at just the right time. We are then treated to a montage of dogs running, playing, and one riding in a car with his head out the window. You know, the best things in life. With the tasteful music and high production values, this is more like a short art film tha
