Homeless Dog Leads People to 10 Sick Puppies and Mom

Emilio Cogliani

A homeless dog is now a hero — literally, as he has been renamed with this fitting moniker after using his bark persistently to lead individuals walking by to an exhausted mother and her 10 newborn, sick puppies.

Maria Tarashevsce, an animal rescuer, witnessed the heroic actions. “When I got there in the evening, Hero was barking really loudly,” she said. “And it wasn’t just a regular bark. He just wouldn’t stop and it sounded like he was in distress of some sort.”


Tarashevsce was with a dog behaviorist, John Miller, who said they needed to follow Hero.

That’s because their website offerings quantifiable information with regards to how much meat the average person consumes over a lifetime of eating animals. According to the site, on average a person eats some 7,000 animals over the course of a lifetime.

The site break it down further: that’s about 11 cows, 27 pigs, 30 sheep, 80 turkeys, 2,400 chickens, and 4,500 fish.

Conversely, the website allows you to input the number of months or years you’ve been a vegetarian to calculate how many animals you’ve ‘saved,’ while also reporting on the sheer pounds of meat you didn’t eat as well as the pounds of CO2 not released…
