Dogs are simply the best. The only way I can accurately describe them is that they are the living embodiment of kindness and compassion.
In fact, dogs are more than happy to help rescue other animals in need.

A six-year-old Golden Retriever named Otis is no exception. The loving pooch was out for a walk with his owner, Jenna Laigle, when he happened upon an unexpected encounter. He discovered a group of baby bunnies!
All six of them had been separated from their mother and their nest. The paternal pup gently gathered them and lovingly cared for them.
Unfortunately, Otis wasn’t able to keep them. His owner had managed to locate the warren and gently returned them to the safety of their mother. But weren’t they lucky that Otis found them when he did!
