Simba is a naturally sweet and friendly pitbull. Unluckily, because of his physical appearance, few people think he is a bit scary. However, not long ago, Simba proved to them their beliefs are wrong.
Simba simply lives in an apartment unit in Sweden, together with his foster parent named Arjanit Mehana. In that place, some individuals in the building would avoid him by staying away from him.
There is one particular neighbor, an old lady, living a floor below who was not friendly to Simba. Mehana said that Simba would try to say hello to her. But, the woman would just stare at him with agitation.
One day, Simba and Mehana were heading home from a short walk when they happened to pass by the woman’s unit as they go upstairs. Right at that very moment, Simba began to act strangely.
Simba stopped and ran and started barking in front of the woman’s door. Mehana even pushed his leash, but the dog refused to move away.
Simba did not stop, so Mehana decided to move to pick him up. Then, he suddenly heard a weak sound from the woman’s unit. The voice was asking for help.
Immediately, Mehana opened the door since it was not locked. There, he saw his neighbor lying on the floor. She had a broken hip and was on that condition for a long time. She cannot move and was in great danger.
So, Mehana right away called for a rescue team. Mehana and Simba decided to wait with the old lady until the ambulance arrived. Simba saved his neighbor’s life despite her coldness to him.
The older woman was very thankful to Simba for such a heroic deed and was in her recovery process. Also, others in their place now became kind to Simba.
On the other hand, Mehana hopes that Simba’s act would change the wrong perception of some people about dogs of different breeds. Like humans, all dogs deserve love and loyalty.
Here is a video below that shows the inspiring story.
