Eleven-year-old Jean Fernandes is a brave boy from Brazil who has a heart for animals. When he came across a dog in 2013, he did not think twice before attempting a rescue mission, even if it put his life at risk.

The youngster noticed that the brown dog was not moving and realized something must have been the matter. His suspicions were correct as it was later confirmed the dog was injured in a hit-and-run car accident.

HE IS AN ANIMAL LOVER

The driver of the vehicle did not stop to assist the dog, and if not for Fernandes, the adorable canine might not have survived. The boy's mother, Rubia Liliana Rose, was proud of her son and shared that his actions were not surprising.

A KIND AND BRAVE BOY

Another netizen added: "Beautiful young man, kind heart, and brave. I hope the very best in life is his." Users were also stunned by Fernandes' maturity.

They indicated that he would undoubtedly grow into a great man because he displayed admirable characteristics such as bravery and kindness. As one commenter stated Fernandes was "a wonderful young man, with all his priorities right."

ANOTHER DOG IS SAVED

No matter how tough they may appear, animals are vulnerable in dangerous situations like busy roads or house fires. When an apartment started burning in Iowa, a team of firefighters, including Malcolm Cortner, managed to save the day.

They rescued the civilians and their 16-month-old Mastiff dog last year. Sadly, the vet gave the owners bad news. Their dog needed expensive treatment that they could not afford—their only option was to euthanize him.

THEY ARE HEROES

Thankfully, firefighter Cortner volunteered to adopt the dog instead. He arranged the treatment and helped the animal make a full recovery. Many users praised his actions and were glad the dog was given a second chance at life.

Cortner was thrilled to have gained a new best friend, much like animal lover Fernandes who was happy to have rescued an injured canine from a dangerous situation. Both individuals were selfless and deserved to be called heroes.
