Maggie, an Australian shepherd mix who stayed at the Barkers Pet Motel in Alberta, Canada while her owners were away, slipped out of her kennel to console two sobbing foster puppies.
Sandra Aldred, the motel’s owner, found the beautiful scene on the institution’s security camera footage in 2016 and uploaded it online.
It’s no secret that everyone adores wonderfully cute dog stories, but this one blows them all out of the water. The incident was covered on ABC News.
Let’s start in Alberta, Canada, where Maggie (an Australian shepherd mix) was abandoned off at a local dog motel by her folks while they were on vacation. Despite their best efforts, they would soon learn that Maggie had other plans for her time at the motel.
Maggie, on the other hand, was not looking for a fight. She was able to sneak away during the night on her first night at the motel without anyone noticing!
What was her motivation for doing this? She’d seen that there were two puppies at the motel with her who were scared and in need of comfort. Maggie was likely pushed into mother mode after giving birth to her children, prompting her to feel inspired to help the puppies receive the maternal care they deserved.
Sandra Aldred, the motel’s owner, double-checked the motel’s security cameras. She was taken aback when she realized Maggie wasn’t there at all! Maggie had gone up to the two puppies to comfort them, so her anxiety quickly dissipated.
Maggie acting in such a kind manner astounded those working at the Barkers Pet Motel, who even went so far as to claim it was one of the most wholesome things they had ever seen on the job!
Maggie’s goodwill ensured that she not only had a wonderful time at the dog motel, but also that she was able to spread her kindness to others in such a real way.
