ince they have such strong instincts, Rottweilers, one of the smartest dog breeds, are almost as attentive as people when it comes to assisting and saving lives. The world was horrified by the tale of the Rottweiler that saved 37 lives! A calamity struck Venezuela in 1999, taking many lives and leaving behind significant material devastation. Numerous individuals lost everything, including their homes, animals, and even loved ones. This catastrophe also had an impact on Mauricio Perez, the pilot of the Vargas. In addition to two cats and five puppies, he possessed two Rottweilers.
The state of Vargas was affected by a severe storm and heavy rain on the nights of December 15 and 16. The only people who were aware of what was about to happen were two dogs who were acting quite oddly. No one could explain why canines acted in such an odd way, but it didn’t take them long to realize why. Perez and his family hurriedly stepped out onto the terrace to rescue themselves as the storm swiftly arrived and caused everything to become flooded. Everyone was in panic and waiting impatiently for assistance as the rain did not stop. The rescue team didn’t show up until the next morning.Orion the dog was unable to board the rescue boat since no one wanted to assist the animals. Not so much due to the physical harm, but more due to the family’s dread of never seeing their dog again, they were transported to safety with tears in their eyes.
When this courageous dog decided to leap into the water after being left alone, everyone was baffled since they had no idea what the dog was doing. But after a little while, everyone in the room was stunned. The dog swam to the girl, who was clinging to a tree trunk with all of her strength, and yelled for aid. She battled for her life with all of her strength because she was afraid. She was brought to safety by the dog, which seized her arm. The brave deed of Orion prevented the unfortunate girl’s death! When you thought Orion had finished, he dove back in to rescue the life of another 14-year-old girl!
Orion kept repeatedly jumping into the sea with no one able to stop him. Everybody who required assistance was someone he wanted to save. He put in a never-ending effort to save the lives of people in peril together with the rescue crews.
Later, the family requested information on their dog from the rescue organization. Nobody knew anything about him. The bereaved family was devastated and dismayed, bracing themselves for the worse.
But two days later, Mr. Perez caught some peculiar news on television: the dog’s valiant deed had made headlines. He was unaware that it was his dog, Orion. This amazing animal saved no less than 37 lives. Perez’s heart erupted with pride and delight when he realized who it was. Like never before in his life, he sobbed. The canine received a hero’s medal.
Orion has been a great hero ever since that day, appearing as a guest on TV shows, and everyone wants to meet him. Sadly, in 2008, his heroic heart stopped beating. He is remembered as a hero today to serve as a lesson for us to always lend a helping hand!
