We all know that Golden Retrievers have big hearts.

Case in point: this canine, who adopted a rescue kitten as his own.

Now comes a video that depicts a one-year old dog coming across a bird who fell out a tree and landed in his family’s garden.

According to the dog’s owner, his pet refused to leave the side of this dying animal, lying in the dirt, licking its wounds and remaining vigil until the bird passed away.

Incredibly, this footage arrives just days after a video that featured a hunting dog rescuing a bird from drowning. Pretty amazing all around, huh?

Dog Remains by Side of Dying Bird

In sad/related news, this Pit Bull/Terrier mix also refused to leave the side of its owner’s corpse in Oklahoma City this week.


They aren’t called Man’s Best Friend for nothing.
