Amazing Dog Travels 2 Miles Every Day to Get Food for Her Pack

Every day for the past three years Lilica, an amazingly loyal and sweet dog, travels four miles round trip to get food to feed her family. Lilica lives in a junkyard in Brazil with another dog, cat, some chickens and a mule, along with Neile Vania Antonio, the woman who took Lilica in as a homeless puppy.

Every night at 9:30 p.m. Lilica ventures to the home of Professor Lucia Helena de Souza, a woman who also takes care of dozens of other stray dogs and cats. Lucia prepares food for Lilica and her family and puts it in a bag; after eating a little bit, Lilica carries the rest home to the junkyard so that her family members have some food to eat too.

"I realized that she ate and then stared at what was in the bag," said Lucia. After considering that perhaps Lilica wanted to take the rest with her, they "tied it up and took the bag and gave it to Lilica."

"People don't do that," said Lucia. "Some people hide and do not want to share what they have with others. She did not, Lilica is an exceptional animal."

 Dogs just amaze us.
