Two Homeless Dogs Living In A Junkyard Get Rescued And Immediately Shown Love.

Two Homeless Dogs Living In A Junkyard Get Rescued And Immediately Shown Love.

VIDEOS
Hope For Paws received a call about two homeless dogs living in a junkyard in a rough part of Los Angeles. When Eldad Hagar and Lisa Arturo arrived at the scene, they found the pair right away. However, the female was more fearful, so they needed to rescue her first. The tight space she crawled into made it very difficult for them to reach her, but eventually they were able to gently pull her to safety. That's when her brother showed himself to check if she was OK, completely ignoring the treats even though he was starving. Checking in on his sister was priority number one.(source: Eldad Hagar) What a beautiful pair of dogs, who ever gives these siblings a forever home will be a very lucky person.

At the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center, animals of all kinds roam the woods. But perhaps none are more fearsome or dreaded than the sanctuary's namesake. The beautiful wolves roaming the sanctuary can physically dominate anyone and demand respect like no other.Except, of course, if your name is Danielle. When this woman enters the woods, the wolf Kekoa becomes the opposite of wild and aggressive. See how the pair interacts -- you won't believe your eyes!

This Cat Really, Really Doesn’t Want His Owner To Work Anymore

Entertainment
I've probably spent the last 20 minutes or so procrastinating by browsing the internet, watching funny cat videos, and talking to my coworkers in the office chat. If you have to work on a computer all day (and let's be real, most of us do), you know how tempting it can be to lose yourself in the web's many distractions. But some distractions are way cuter than Facebook and Twitter. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); The struggle is so real if you work from home or your office allows pets, because fur babies love monopolizing our attention. Take this cat, for example. The impatient feline really isn't pleased that Dad works all the time, so he goes to great lengths to distract him at every turn. This employee clearly has to deal with s...

I learned how to play the piano when I was little, but I never had such a devoted sidekick to sing along with my tunes. Occasionally, I was graced by a violin, but the sweet sounds that are created when these two cuties come together is unmatched. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); As the little girl in the video below hits the keys on her trusty piano, her beautiful boxer seems to want to add his own input to the song.

If you've ever seen a video of an adorable goat kid, you've probably seen it jumping...right? It's just in their nature! That's what they do. They hop around merrily and they look like they're having a blast while doing it.Well, after seeing this video, I'm realizing that their super-cute jumping may be more nurture than nature. Watch this woman teach a goat how to jump in her kitchen. It's beyond adorable. Further proof that baby goats are the most adorable creatures ever: Gotta love dem baby goats!! The most important lesson goats teach us is this: nothing is cuter than baby goats, so don't even try.Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/goat-hopping-kitchen/
The Dog Is In No Mood To Play Fetch, But Watch What The Little Boy Does — So Cute!

The Dog Is In No Mood To Play Fetch, But Watch What The Little Boy Does — So Cute!

Entertainment
Most dogs are happy to play fetch all day, every day, but sometimes, even the most energetic pups just want to relax. In this funny clip, a pampered pooch sits on the couch as his favorite little human tries to make him play. After throwing the ball across the room and doing his very best to persuade his four-legged friend, it becomes clear to the boy that the pup just wants to chill out for a while. Instead of being bossy, however, the understanding little guy goes a different (and way more adorable) route. It's nice for little kids to get a lesson in patience every now and then, and if you asked this little man, he'd probably tell you that his best buddy is his favorite teacher.

10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

Entertainment
When it comes to the animal kingdom, the undisputed champion is the sloth (in my personal opinion, anyway). But what about when it comes to insects more specifically? I would like to nominate the praying mantis for the title of "Most Badass Bug."They might not seem like much at first glance, but they're scrappy and they fight creatures much bigger and stronger than they are (and often win). Just have a look at some of these photos and videos. I think they'll make you understand my logic. When a praying mantis sets its sights on you, you don't stand a chance...especially if they catch you off guard, like this poor lizard.Reddit / GallowBoobThey don't discriminate on the basis of cuteness either. In some areas of the country, hummingbirds are on the praying mantis'...

If you travel just about two hours outside of Tokyo to Nara, Japan, you might think you've stepped into a Disney movie. If you think about how India feels about cows, you'll have an idea of how this town feels about deer. They are approximate 1,200 deer roaming their streets. It's as adorable as it sounds. Among the temples, shrines (including one of the world's largest shrines to Buddha) and ancient ruins, these adorable antlered animals are protected as national treasures and safely stray all around the area.Local folklore claims they were brought to the city 1,300 years ago by a deity named Takemikazuchi.

It’s A Good Idea To Make Sure Your Food Is Dead Before You Try To Eat It

Entertainment
Despite their bad reputation in some circles, frog legs can be pretty delicious. That being said, it takes a skilled chef to prepare them just right. Oh, and you also need to be prepared for the legs to move a little bit. You see, at the time of death, a frog's legs are still biologically functional. If the muscles are stimulated -- with electricity, for example -- they can move. You can get the same effect by adding simple table salt to the legs while they're still raw. That's because table salt contains the same kind of sodium ions that are used in batteries. The sodium ions enter the negatively charged muscle cells. That causes a pretty bizarre reaction, as you can see in the video below. (via Brain Stuff Show)The muscles will go on moving like that until they've used up all of t...

Growing up, I'm sure most of us had that one creepy neighbor. You know, the one who just seemed off in some way -- maybe not in a "kill you in cold blood for no reason" kind of way, but still bizarre.Looking back now, you can probably boil that down to being a kid and not knowing much about the world. For Redditor SomeKindOfHypnotist, however, his assessment of the creepy guy next door was actually tame compared to what was really going on. SomeKindOfHypnotist says that the house he grew up in was right next to that of an older gentleman, affectionately known as Creeky.

The Australian shepherd has two noses and because of that abnormality, he was about to meet an unfortunate and early end. But luckily, a hero stepped in. Todd Ray decided to adopt Toby because he would much rather give the pup a happy life than see him put down simply because he looked different. Ray says that Toby is a happy dog that everyone loves once they get past his irregularity. Who could resist that (albeit unusual) face??? And Ray isn't a stranger to animals like Toby -- he holds the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of animals with two heads. ...
