A sweet family dog rescued a stray kitten after finding the cat in the pouring rain. Hazel, a Yorkie, Chihuahua and poodle mix, lives in Abilene, Texas and surprised her mom, Monica Burks, by bringing home the abandoned kitten.
Hazel had been let outside for her bathroom break by Monica but didn’t come back right away. When Monica looked outdoors to see where her 3-year-old dog had gotten to, she was surprised to see Hazel returning with a new friend.
Hazel kept drawing attention to the faint meowing coming from underneath their shed. She refused to leave the spot, despite the downpour until she was able to coax the kitten from her hiding spot. Once the kitten was out from under the shed, Hazel led the cat back home.
Each time the kitten hesitated and stopped in her tracks, Hazel encouraged the frightened animal to keep following her. Monica recorded Hazel bringing the kitten to her doorstep. And when the kitten couldn’t quite jump up the step into their home, Hazel picked the kitten up in her mouth and helped her inside.
Since her rescue, the kitten has been given the name Sheba, and Monica’s brother, Michael, has adopted her!
