You’ve probably heard plenty of stories about how loving dogs can be but you’ve probably never heard anything like this before.
What Lilica does is incredibly special and brought tears to my eyes. Lilica was abandoned as a young puppy in São Carlos but found by Neile Vania Antonio. Together, they live in a junkyard with the rest of their diverse family that includes another dog, a cat, a mule, and several chickens.
Lilica lives in a junkyard with another dog, a cat, a mule, and chickens.
Every night, Lilica does something that will leave you speechless. Every night, Lilica travels two miles along a busy highway to visit Lucia Helena de Souza, who takes care of numerous stray animals. You see, Lucia and Lilica have a special arrangement: Lucia prepares food in a bag for Lilica and meets her at 9:30 pm. Lilica will eat some of the food before making the two-mile journey back with the rest of the meal back to her junkyard home to feed the rest of her family.
Every night, she travels several miles along a busy highway to get food for her family.
Lucia explained, “I realized that she ate and then stared at what was in the bag.” A neighbour then suggested that perhaps Lilica kept staring at the food because she wanted to take the rest of it with her. “Then we tied up the bag and gave it to Lilica. From then on, that’s what how we did it.” This arrangement has been going on for over three years! Lucia believes that Lilica is a very special dog. “People don’t do that. Some people hide what they have and don’t want to share with others. She didn’t. Lilica is an exceptional animal.”
What a heart-melting story about a selfless dog that is truly devoted to her family. Lilica, we can learn a lot from you. You are truly incredible! The video below is in Portuguese but it is subtitled in English. If you enjoyed this story, please share it with your family and friends!
