Even though they have thick coats, dogs are not invincible to cold temperatures. Much like humans, they are also prone to sickness when exposed to blizzards or worse; they could get frostbite.

This dog was left by its owner as she went inside the post office. Thinking that she was just going in for a few minutes, she thought it was fine to leave her dog outside, tied to a post.

Perhaps the pooch realized what the man was doing and did not hesitate to be wrapped around the arms of a stranger.

The video serves as a good example to remind pet owners that animals are also prone to get sick, especially in freezing conditions. As pet owners, they should be careful and never neglect their pet’s safety and well-being.

As for the stranger, he only proved that humanity still exists and that we, as humans, are still capable of making kind gestures without thinking of getting something in return.

Meanwhile, in another story, a couple was arrested after they also left their poor dog outside in the freezing weather.

Their pet husky was left outside in chains for hours without food, water, or shelter.

Neighbors alerted the officials after they saw the poor animal suffering and wailing outside in the 13-degree weather.

It is important to know that when a human feels cold, it follows that it is the same way for pets.

When dogs suffer frostbite, the best thing to do is to immediately give them a warm bath, wrap them in warm towels, feed them something warm like soup, and bring them to your local vet.
