Rescued Dog Travels The World Helping Rescue Other Dogs

On the way to deliver a puppy to its new family, brothers Henry and Elias Friedman, had a change of plans that changed their lives. The family that was supposed to rescue the pup changed their minds and decided to not adopt the puppy after all, and Henry, instead of bringing the Finn the puppy back, decided to adopt him himself. At the time, Henry had left his career in advertising and was living in a converted cargo van. It was a good thing that the puppy turned out to really, really like traveling.

"It was a test drive, very literally a test drive. I was already living in a van. He turned out to be a really good travel dog," Henry told PEOPLE. "We just got really, really close."

After adopting Finn, Henry started an Instagram account for him called @KeepingFinn, where all of their adventures together are documented, including meetups with some of the account's fans. Finn, who is now 2 years old and 50 pounds heavy, is Henry's official best travel buddy. "You don't feel like a stranger everywhere you go," he said.

Having grown a huge social media following, Henry decided he wants to do more, and he decided to start a project rescuing other dogs in need like Finn. "Each month, the account features a local rescue from the area that Henry and Finn visiting on their travels, helping to raise awareness and funds for the rescue."

Henry and Finn together manage to raise about $13,000 a month and have raised over $150,000 to date. Alongside their monthly dog rescue initiative, "Henry and Finn have hosted spay and neuter clinics, offered free vaccinations, and held pet food drives as well. The duo has also helped more than 60 dogs find forever homes, even fostering pooches in the van while they wait for the perfect match."

"We bring dogs on the road with us, live the van life, bring them on big adventures and find them families," Henry explains. One of their latest achievements was joining Wings of Rescue and The Sato Project and helping them transport over 150 rescue dogs from Puerto Rico to their new adoptive families on the east coast. 

Finn is, of course, loving all of the adventures. "He's never peed in the same place more than once, he is living his best life. That makes me really happy," Henry says. So, not only is this adopted puppy happy, he's making other puppies happy as well, and we're happy for them as a consequence.

Check out some pictures of Finn and Hanry's adventures below! For more wholesome dog rescue stories, read about a puppy left tied to a bench with a note getting adopted.

Excited puppies are the best puppies, and we love them! Endless energy, curiosity out the roof, and full of a desire to experience everything life has to offer. That includes new snack options. Whether it's the less delicious broccoli or the always winning chimken, this puppy is excited from beginning to end. 

She also tries to steal the snacks from the older pupper - even the gross broccoli. The puppy simply must have it all, and the doggo is the most patient prince ever, letting the adorable puppy spend all of her energy. Except for the chicken - doggo will not give chicken to puppy. Chicken is too good to give up.

Curious User Finds Out The Pawdorable History Of Their Adopted Puppy

When we adopt a pet - young or old - and don't know their story, we can't help but wonder about it. I can say personally that I've always wondered if my little kitten's ears look funny and different because something bit her or if it's just genetic. There's no way for me to know, and the curiosity has stayed all the years that I've had her. 

Sometimes though, you get lucky and find out exactly where they're from. Like this story that went viral on imgur. This curious imgur user managed to discover his little puppy's background, and it warmed the hearts of tens of thousands because it is one of the most wholesome, heartwarming stories possible. 

From adorable pupper to "weird looking leggy goober", this is the history of Jupiter.

Puppy Abandoned And Chained To Bench With Note Gets Adopted

This adorable seven-month-old puppy was abandoned on a park bench and though the start of his story is not the greatest, the ending is as positive as it gets with the puppy getting adopted and finding its new forever home!

PEOPLE reports that Marcela Goldberg, who runs local shelter Mascotas Coyoacá in Mexico, heard about the dog and his story and drove out to find the dog tied to a bench with a note next to it. The note said the following: "It hurts a lot to leave my dog here but I made the decision of leaving him because my family used to mistreat him and it would always hurt me to see him in that condition... If you're reading this and your heart wavers, please adopt him and take good care of him. If not, please leave this note in its place. That way others can read it and adopt him. Thank you."

Read the original note and more about the puppy named Boston below!

Because obviously that's the only thing they can mean with their most adorable head tilts. Those dogs are top notch dogs, and that makes them the cutest dogs.

Fourteen Funny Dogs That Are Good Boys

Let's be honest, all dogs are good dogs. But funny dogs are extra good dogs. Why? Because on top of being a good doggo, they are doing an extra job of making you laugh. Mind you, it's not an easy job for them to do, and really, their hard work has to be appreciated and admired on an additional level. 

So, when you pet them, it's important that you not only say "who's a good boy" but add "who's an extra good boy". Make sure that you know that even when they're being funny and maybe doing something ridiculous, and even if they get their head stuck in something or eat something they're not supposed to and are not having the best day, they are loved despite and for being the silliest doggos. 

memes tweets and pictures of funny dogs who are also good dogs thumbnail includes two pictures including a dog sticking its nose through a Japanese door 'Nose - Staying at a house in Japan when suddenly' and another of a dog with a shaming sign on it 'Dog - I MADE MY DAD JUMP WHEN 1 FARTED WHILE HE WAS WATCHING A HORROR FILM!'

Heroic Man Saves His Puppy From Jaws Of An Alligator

Richard Wilbanks, a 74-year-old man from Florida had his instinct take over when his 3-month-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Gunner, was grabbed from an alligator and dragged under the water. 

The scary moment took place in Wilbanks' backyard pond in Estero, and the moment Wilbanks jumped into the pond to rescue Gunner was recorded on a surveillance camera. The dramatic footage reveals Wildbanks waist-deep in the pond as he wrestles with the gator's jaws to free his dog Gunner from them. 

Wilbanks describes the terrifying moment to CNN, "We were just out walking by the pond and it came out of the water like a missile. I never thought an alligator could be that fast. It was so quick. I just automatically jumped into the water." He also added that opening up the gator's jaw was "extremely hard" and that his hands were left "chewed up" afterward. He also added that he went to the doctor afterwards for a tetanus shot. And Gunner was of course taken to the vet after the incident where he was treated for one puncture wound in his belly.

Thanks to Wilbanks courage and rescue without hesitation, his adorable pup Gunner is doing just fine. From now on, Wilbanks will be keeping Gunner on a leash and far away from the water's edge. 

"Our pets, they're just like family to us," Wilbanks concluded.
