Watch as this sensitive dog assists her human in rescuing a stranded baby dolphin.
Animals are far more sensitive than most humans realize. As TrueActivist has shared before, the awareness in many animals can be witnessed if you just take the time. For example, when a baby elephant was almost trampled to death by its mother, it mourned for 5 hours, crying streams of tears.
A positive – yet equally as moving – display of animals’ sensitivity was recently demonstrated in a story covered by The Dodo. A little dog named Leia rescued a baby dolphin by alerting her humans of its stranded position on the beach.
With a camera in hand, Leia’s human documented the entire experience, which occurred earlier this month.
“I was taking photos of the fantastic scenery when I heard my dog barking at me from further down the beach… clearly she had found something!”
When Leia’s companion came closer to what she was barking at, he realized a baby porpoise was stuck on the beach. Being a good samaritan, he then carefully and gently guided the dolphin back into the ocean – all while recording the inspirational rescue.
Once the baby dolphin was safely in the water and swimming again, he snapped a photo and nicknamed it Buddy.
“Stayed at the site for while after to make sure he didn’t come back. Spoke to the coastguard once I had signal and they reported it to the science team. Think the little guy was lucky as there was nobody around for miles,” the rescuer posted on YouTube.
Leia’s human might have guided the baby porpoise back to sea, but it was Leia who noticed the animal in distress and led her human to the stranded mammal.
