This is the story of a brave mommy dog who was saved in the wake of one of the deadliest natural disasters in Brazilian history. It was a bright afternoon when the dam overseeing the iron ore, named Samarco suddenly burst onto a city full of thriving people, animals and homes and drowning everything else in a sea of mud, on its way.
When the dam failed, it created a mudslide that was deadly and ruthless. It killed 17 people, displaced almost all vegetation and any trace of human existence underneath its natural course of withering.
And, when the avalanche was done … there was nothing left! Not even a speck of the city’s centuries old spicy histories, crazy statues, buildings and even libraries were wiped clean, in merely a few hours.
Animal Rights Defense Institute – Idda Ouro Preto (IDDA) took the responsibility of animal rescues and kept the masses updated about their heroic rescues on their Facebook page. And when the volunteers shared the story of a mommy dog who was miraculously pulled out from a swamp of mud by a valiant firefighter, it shook the world wild with pride!
This brave rescuer pulled big Mommy straight out of the muddy tornado …
And, scooped her up like this …
And steadied her on his shoulders and walked her … to a new life full of hope, love and butt wiggles! We salute these heroes for looking out for these defenseless and helpless dogs and on their Facebook Page, they updated everyone with the good news
This is incredible! I bet everyone’s who’s reading this today have nothing but a BIG thank you for the rescuers for their bravery and compassion Don’t forget to share this post with your friends too!
