Remarkable Canine Heroism: A Brave Dog’s Courageous Act Beneath an Approaching Train to Console Its Injured Companion

“Incredible Canine Loyalty: A Railroad Saga of Unyielding Friendship”

In the tranquil village of Tseglivka, Ukraine, an extraordinary story unfolds – a story that epitomizes genuine friendship and steadfast loyalty among our four-legged companions.

It all started on the railroad tracks when Lucy, a female dog, found herself in a perilous predicament. Injured and unable to move, she lay vulnerable to the imminent danger of approaching trains. Local residents, moved by compassion, attempted to rescue her, but Lucy’s devoted companion, Panda, stood guard, barking fiercely to keep them at bay.

Denis Malafeyev, a compassionate soul, stumbled upon this heart-wrenching scene. He documented their precarious situation in a video that left viewers on the edge of their seats. With trains hurtling dangerously close, Denis knew that any rescue attempt would be a race against time.

As the thundering sound of an approaching train grew louder, something extraordinary occurred. Panda, sensing the impending danger, moved closer to Lucy and nestled beside her. With their heads lowered and their bodies huddled together, they braced themselves for the inevitable. The train thundered overhead, just inches from their heads, but miraculously, both dogs emerged unscathed.

This remarkable display of canine devotion continued for two consecutive days. Panda faithfully remained by Lucy’s side, offering warmth and solace. It’s a testament to loyalty and friendship that leaves us all in awe, prompting us to contemplate the depths of love and compassion that can exist between animals.

When the two dogs were eventually rescued from the perilous tracks, they were taken to a veterinarian for care. Lucy, though battered and bruised, had no broken bones. With the unwavering support of their dedicated family, the dogs embarked on their journey to recovery. Even on the way home, Panda continued to snuggle with Lucy – a powerful testament to the bond they shared.

As time passed, Lucy and Panda healed, both physically and emotionally. Lucy’s injuries were treated, and Panda slowly began to trust humans again. Their story touched the hearts of many, and soon a kind-hearted individual stepped forward to offer them a loving foster home.

This tale of unshakable friendship and loyalty serves as a poignant reminder of the remarkable capacity for compassion and sacrifice found in the animal kingdom. Lucy and Panda, two courageous souls who faced danger together, stand as shining examples of the power of friendship and the extraordinary lengths to which our beloved animal companions will go to protect and comfort one another.

Waggy races! Dozens of disabled stray dogs use wheelchairs to take their daily walk at sanctuary in Thailand

The 27 dogs from a shelter in Chonburi, Thailand, appeared to be beaming from ear to ear as enjoyed a stroll with their wheel aides

With tails wagging to a chorus of barks and yelps, dozens of disabled dogs attached to wheels that support their disabled hind legs looked ecstatic as they took their daily walk at a sanctuary in Thailand.  

Mostly victims of accidents, the 27 dogs are being nursed back to health at a shelter in Thailand’s province of Chonburi southeast of the capital, Bangkok. 

They beamed from ear to ear as they took to the rocky track with their wheels for their dose of exercise for the day. 

‘It’s almost like they have no idea that they have a disability and once you put them in the wheelchair for the first time, it’s like there’s no learning curve,’ said shelter official Christopher Chidichimo. 

Thanks to mobility devices, the disabled dogs were able to get some much needed outside exercise in Chonburi, Thailand

During their exercise outing at the shelter, the disabled dogs were even joined by some strays who decided to join in with all the fun

Shelter official Christopher Chidichimo said ‘It’s almost like they have no idea that they have a disability’ once the dogs are placed in the wheelchairs for the first time

The shelter, run by a foundation called The Man That Rescues Dogs, was set up by a Swede who moved to Chonburi in 2002 and was so dismayed by the poor condition of strays that he started caring for them after work. 

But its future is now in doubt, after the coronavirus pandemic led to a 40 per cent drop in donations and slashed the number of foreign visitors. 

‘The donations are very important and the volunteers and visitors are equally important, because they come and spread our message,’ said Chidichimo, who is a sponsorship coordinator at the shelter. 

The shelter spends more than $1,300 (£946.42) each day to care for more than 600 dogs and feed 350 more that live on the streets.

The shelter takes care of a range of dogs from different backgrounds and even offers physiotherapy sessions

Its volunteers also look after paralysed and disabled dogs, including physiotherapy sessions, but scarce funds have forced it to suspend a monthly campaign to spay and neuter strays. 

Thailand, estimated to have more than 800,000 stray cats and dogs in 2017, could see their number reach 2 million by 2027 and 5 million in 20 years unless it takes some steps to control numbers, livestock authorities says. 

For now, the disabled dogs in Chonburi enjoy their daily rambles. ‘They are eager for us to strap them up,’ said dog handler Phanuphong Borphuak, referring to the canine mobility aids.

‘They run very fast, we humans can’t keep up with them.’
