Suelen Schaumloeffel, a woman who lives in Brazil, decided it was the perfect time to adopt a dog. Suelen and her husband traveled to the local shelter to see if a dog was their they liked. A puppy named Lana caught their eye.
Lana had lived alone on the streets for the majority of her eight months on earth. But despite the tough conditions of her early life, Lana was as sweet as she could be.
Lana loved her new home and enjoyed spending time with her new parents. She also had a backyard doghouse she enjoyed. The doghouse is where Lana would sleep and spend her time when her parents were away.
Suelen decided one winter night to purchase a thick blanket for Lana to combat the frigid conditions. She placed the blanket inside of Lana’s doghouse before retiring to her bedroom for the night.
Suelen’s husband went to the backyard the next morning to check on Lana. He was astounded by what he found.
There was a homeless dog asleep just outside of the couple’s yard. Lana obviously felt the dog needed some protection from the cold. Lana dragged her brand new blanket to where the dog was laying and shared it with her new friend.
Suelen says she was proud of Lana for the act of kindness. She says she made an approach to the dog to see if he was injured or had suffered harm but he quickly ran away.
Suelen says she sees the dog from time to time roaming the neighborhood. She says the dog always runs from her but he eats food and drinks water that she leaves for him.
Suelen says Lana is always excited when she sees her friend and has reminded her of the impact we all can have on the lives of others around us.
Suelen captured a photo of Lana and her friend and posted it to Facebook. The photo now has 27,000 times and thousands of comments have been left. Most of the comments commended Lana for her kindness and generosity.
What did you think of the demonstration of kindness made by Lana? Do you think we can learn a thing or two from the four-legged creature? Send this article to all your friends and family – they will surely be impressed with the act of kindness from the generous canine.
