Dogs are called man’s best friend for a reason.
They’re one of the most loyal creatures that will do a lot for their master. These four-legged creatures often risk their own lives to protect their caretakers from danger. The bravest ones are rescue and police rescue dogs. They come face to face with dangerous situations nearly every day and they often do just as good a job as brave officers.
Achy Wijaya lives in the Indonesian city of Merauke in the province of Papua. Recently he posted on Facebook about some tragic events that took place in his own backyard. It was the middle of the night when Achy and his family heard disturbing noises coming from outside. Their dog was barking as if he were possessed, but the family didn’t see anything suspicious.
They thought he might be annoyed about seeing another dog or cat, which is probably why he was making so much noise. After some time the animal calmed down and the house members went back to their beds. It turned out that it wasn’t a false alarm at all! A group of people was trying to break into Achy’s house, and the alert dog immediately sensed them. He started barking, but his owners didn’t take him seriously.
It was too late to rescue anyone in the morning. They saw something that completely broke their hearts. The four-legged creature lay half-dead in the yard. They quickly realized that he must have been poisoned by someone in order to get him to calm down and stop barking. The thieves could scout out the entire area in peace this way.
Were they able to save the brave pet? More about this on the next page.
