At 8 months old, Lana (a rescue puppy) is still very much a puppy. But she knows better than most just how important it is to be kind. Lana lives in Brazil, where she was rescued from the streets with her siblings late last year. Not long after, she was adopted by Suelen Schaumloeffel and her fiancé, settling in to her happy new life as a cherished pet.
The weather has been rather chilly in their region recently. So this week Schaumloeffel bought a thicker blanket to ensure Lana stayed warm and cozy in her doghouse out front.
“I thought, ‘How beautiful what she did for her friend,'” Schaumloeffel tells The Dodo. “My best four-legged friend reminded me of something so important: generosity!”
Since then, Schaumloeffel and her fiancé have seen the dog around intermittently. But he still runs away whenever they try to get close.
“She is the nicest little dog I’ve ever met,” Schaumloeffel says. “We forget sometimes the difference we can make in someone’s life. She reminded me of this.”
