At only a little over 8-months-old, Lana is what you would still class as a puppy. Even though she is young, she still very much understands the importance of being kind.
Lana lived on the streets of Brazil before she and her siblings were rescued. She was soon adopted by Suelen Schaumloeffel and now lives in a happy home. But she hasn’t forgotten her background and how hard it was living on the street. Which is why it was no surprise to Suelen when she witnessed Lana showing immense kindness to another dog in need.
One chilly night, Suelen tucked Lana into her dog house, wrapping her up in a cozy thick blanket. Little did she know, that after she tucked Lana in, she would give up her comfort to help a new friend.
When Schaumloeffel’s fiancé stepped out to head to work the next day, he discovered that Lana had dragged the blanket outside to share it with a stray dog who lives on the streets.
Schaumloeffel says she’d actually seen that other dog for the first time near their house a few days before. She wasn’t able to determine if he was a stray as when she had approached to check for a tag he’d run away.
“I thought, ‘How beautiful what she did for her friend,'” Schaumloeffel told The Dodo. “My best four-legged friend reminded me of something so important: generosity!”
Since this special day, Suelen and her fiancé have watched this special friendship unfold in front of their eyes. They have tried to approach the stray dog a few times but it always darts off. They hope that if he’s lost they can help him get home, or if he’s a stray, make him a part of their family. In the meantime, they’ve been leaving out food and water for him. After all, this is what Lana would do if she could.
She is the nicest little dog I’ve ever met. We forget sometimes the difference we can make in someone’s life but she has reminded me of this.
Lana walked out of her cozy dog house to share her blanket with a stray dog out in the cold night air. Her selfless actions are just too pure for this world – what a truly beautiful dog!
