One of the brightest dog breeds, Rottweilers, are almost as attentive as people when it comes to helping and saving lives because they have such great instincts. The story of the Rottweiler that saved 37 lives terrified the entire globe! In 1999, Venezuela was hit by a catastrophe that claimed many lives and caused extensive material destruction. Many people suffered total loss, including their homes, pets, and even loved ones. The Vargas’s pilot, Mauricio Perez, was also affected by this calamity. He had two Rottweilers, two cats, five puppies.
On December 15 and 16, a violent storm and copious rain lashed the state of Vargas. Only two dogs, who were behaving very strangely, were aware of what was about to happen. Nobody knew why dogs behaved in such a weird way, but it didn’t take long for them to figure it out. As the storm quickly approached and everything started to flood, Perez and his family hastily stepped out onto the terrace to save themselves. As the rain continued, everyone was in a panic and nervously waiting for help. It wasn’t until the following morning when the rescue crew arrived.
Orion the dog was unable to board the rescue boat since no one wanted to assist the animals. Not so much due to the physical harm, but more due to the family’s dread of never seeing their dog again, they were transported to safety with tears in their eyes.
Everyone was puzzled since they had no idea what the brave dog was doing when, after being left alone, he decided to plunge into the water. However, everyone in the room was stunned after a short while. The dog swam over to the girl, who was desperately hanging to a tree trunk, and yelled for help. She fought with all her might for her life because she was terrified. The dog grabbed her arm and pulled her to safety. The sad girl’s death was averted thanks to Orion’s gallant action! Orion jumped back in to save the life of another 14-year-old girl just as you thought he was done.
Orion kept repeatedly jumping into the sea with no one able to stop him. Everybody who required assistance was someone he wanted to save. He put in a never-ending effort to save the lives of people in peril together with the rescue crews.
Later, the family requested information on their dog from the rescue organization. Nobody knew anything about him. The bereaved family was devastated and dismayed, bracing themselves for the worse.
However, Mr. Perez saw some strange news on television two days later: the dog’s brave act had made headlines. He didn’t know it was Orion, his dog. Not fewer than 37 lives were saved by this remarkable animal. When Perez recognized who it was, his heart exploded with pride and joy. He wailed, crying for the first time in his life. The dog was awarded a medal of valor.
Ever since that day, Orion has been a fantastic hero, making guest appearances on TV shows, and everyone wants to meet him. Sadly, his brave heart ceased pumping in 2008. He is honored as a hero today to teach us the importance of always being helpful!
