Rescued Dog Saves 6 Abandoned Kittens (Photos)

Banzé (or “Scamp”) was once a homeless dog—so when he heard the plaintive mews of an abandoned litter of kittens, he did not hesitate to save them, as he had once been saved.

The kittens were trapped inside a box atop a trash heap, in a neighborhood near Săo Paulo’s Jardim Aeroporto. He gently tore the box apart, and then carried the kittens—one by one—back to his human’s home. (source)

Very sweet story but does no-one question what the dog's owner was doing while he was walking the streets and climbing around trash heaps? Does not sound like a responsible owner to me.

Animals constantly prove they are more loving than most humans and is it we still think we're at the top of the pole?
