We know that a dog’s curiosity can get them into trouble sometimes. But for one dog, it not only saved lives but saw him become a rather unique foster dad.

Valia, a volunteer for Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS) in Greece, was out walking with her rescue dog Aragon.

Passionate about rescuing abandoned animals, each day Valia searches the mountains for pets that have been left there to die. She had gone with Aragon for a walk in the mountains planning to film a video about the number of animals abandoned there. Just within one month alone, 25 kittens were rescued from the mountains.

Rescue mission

But she didn’t expect that her filming trip would turn into yet another rescue mission.

Out on their walk, Aragon started pulling his owner in a different direction. He’d spotted a box abandoned on the mountain and was determined to take his owners to it.

Once they reached the box, Valia opened it and discovered a litter of tiny kittens inside.

Left to die

"This time, the kittens were lucky,” Valia told Bored Panda. “Aragon started pulling us towards their direction – basically he was the rescuer.”

The little kittens had been simply left to die in the box.

Valia immediately took the kittens to the shelter where they were checked over and cared for.

But Aragon’s work wasn’t over.

Foster Dad

The kind-hearted pooch has stepped into the role of foster Dad for the little kitties.

 “He has been an excellent foster dad since day one,” Valia said. “Aragon is curious about the kittens and since the first moment he saw them, he had a constant need to keep them all together and to clean them,” she added.

While the shelter got the kittens ready to be adopted, Aragon showered his little feline friends with love and affection.

Well done Aragon!
