Two years ago in Bangalore, a man named Vijay took a shine to one of India’s numerous needy, homeless dogs. Vijay named the dog Johny and started feeding and caring for him. Johny quickly became a popular member of the neighborhood.

Little did Vijay know that his good deed was destined to lead to another.

When a thief snatched jewelry from a woman who was walking down Johny’s street, it was Johny to the rescue! Johny chased the man down, caught him by the pants, and refused to the let the man go until police arrived and arrested the bandit.

With the perp in custody and the jewelry returned to its rightful owner, Johny has been promoted from favorite neighborhood dog to local hero, which just goes to show how a simple act of kindness keeps on giving.

    If people were as loyal patient and grateful as dogs the world would be a much better place than it is now.

  • Bluebell says:

    It’s amazing how loyal and protective dogs can be especially given the amount of abuse they often receive in return. I’m not sure my wee dog would do the same as she’s not terribly bright.. lol
