The dog's name is Rescue, and he has certainly helped to rescue both Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes. The two were newlyweds in April 2013 when they both lost their left legs below the knee during the Boston Marathon bombing. While holed up at the hospital recovering for months, Jessica met Rescue, a dog that had medical conditions of his own. The two became fast friends, and the couple has even written a best-selling children's book about Jessica's relationship with Boston. Kudos to all three of you for being so strong and inspiring!

Sometimes Animals Just Need A Good Trim

Sometimes Animals Just Need A Good Trim

All animals need sometimes is a little human love and assistance, especially for those without homes. Stray Rescue of St. Louis came upon a very freezing and scared dog sticking to the ice under a car. After pulling him to safety, the pooch now named Pilgrim was taken to get some of his matted fur cut off (5.6 pounds to be exact!). He also headed into surgery to fix a broken pelvis and bone fractures. Over in Turkey, stylist Aytac Nalbant tends to a cute kitty. The cat named Odin was once a stray living on the streets in the freezing cold when he got taken in by Nalbant's salon as an unofficial mascot. We love how patiently he sits in the chair during the styling! Looking good, little dude. View Now
Man Discovers Dog In The Road, Rescues Injured Owner

Man Discovers Dog In The Road, Rescues Injured Owner

In a truly amazing story, Martin Hall Jr. saved not just one life but three, including two dogs! When driving his tow truck in Coulterville, California, he came across a dog dragging its leash in the middle of a dirt road. Getting out of his truck, Martin walked toward the dog, trying to coax it to come closer with a sandwich, in this video shared on Facebook by Michele F. Elam. Unable to approach the dog, Hall Jr. kept shooting his video, hoping it post later on social media in the hopes that the owner would see it. He reluctantly decided to leave the animal there, but turned back around, and it's a good thing he did. Hall Jr. heard someone yelling for help, and it turned out to be the dog's owner being kept company by another dog. The owner had fallen earlier while walking the dogs and was unable to stand. Hall Jr. quickly alerted the man's wife and also called 911. It was truly a miracle that Hall Jr. had traveled down the road, being unfamiliar with the area. Thank you for your kindness and good deed! View Now

If You Came Here To Kill Me Clap Your Hands — Pranksters Join RTM

12-year-old Daniel was home alone when he heard a noise upstairs, so he did what any smart teenager would do — took out his phone to record, just in case he was about to square up with a ghost. He approached the stairs and sang "If you came here to kill me, clap your hands" and to his surprise, something upstairs clapped. Next thing he knew he was taking off down the street, running quite literally for his life. We're sure you'll be relieved to hear this was all a setup for a funny video, and his mom was the one upstairs clapping. View Now
