Dogs are just wonderful creatures.
Their love and loyalty often benefit not only people but also other animals.
Kerrie Burns and Pam Weber were walking along the Saker River when suddenly their dog, Kenai, started barking at the bushes.
He noticed a bald eagle hiding there.
The dog was taught not to chase other animals, and that is why, when he saw that the owners also noticed the bird, he stopped barking.
The couple thought something was wrong with the eagle.
They decided to approach the bird, and at that moment she wanted to jump on them.
Since it was already getting dark, and it was not safe there, the couple decided to go home and return in the morning.
When they returned the next day, the eagle was still sitting in the bushes.
Then they decided to ask for help. The eagle was caught and taken to an animal rehabilitation organization.
The eagle had frozen feathers and a shoulder injury.
Later, signs of lead poisoning were also found.
The veterinarian said that lead treatment requires a lot of time – from several months to a year or more.
However, the prognosis for the bird is favorable.
And if not for Kenai, the eagle would not have survived without treatment.
Yet another proof of how amazing dogs can be.
