Probably, this is Сalled “Lucky”…

177 Probably, this is Сalled “Lucky”...
Fresa, 5, stands inside the dog shelter “Santuario Milagros Caninos” on the outskirts of Mexico City August 29, 2014. Fresa underwent reconstructive surgery after her previous owners hacked off half of her snout with a sharp object, possibly a machete, according to surgeon Jesus Paredes. After neighbours found Fresa wandering on the streets, they handed her over to a shelter where Paredes performed a three-hour intervention to enable her to breathe again through her nostrils, to remove her protruding jaw and reconstruct the lips with flaps of skin and mucous.

Photo Series Captures the Quiet Dignity of Search and Rescue Dogs that Served During 9/11

We all know that hundreds of firefighters, police officers and ambulance crews helped out on 9/11 to rescue those trapped in the World Trade Center, but rarely do we hear about the heroic rescue dogs of that fateful day. With the help of FEMA, photographer Charlotte Dumas tracked down 15 dogs who worked to find survivors in the rubble of the twin towers, and fittingly named her photo series Retrieved.

‘These animals were all at the same place at the same time, one decade ago, for the same reason: to work. That experience unites them, and was the incentive for me to pursue this subject and to photograph the dogs’, says Dumas of her work.

A Mongoose vs Four Lions

148 A Mongoose vs Four Lions
A mongoose emerges from its hole as lions wait nearby on September 10, 2011 in Maasai Mara, Kenya. Four lions were left with their tails between their legs when a mongoose bravely took on the predators. Despite being under two feet tall, the aggressive mongoose growled at the felines and even bit one on the nose. The shocking fight, which was photographed in 2011 but has just been released, began in the Masaai Mara National Park, Kenya, when photographer Jerome Guillaumot came across four young lions surrounding the terrified marsh mongoose. The lions chased the mongoose into a hole in the ground but the small animal reemerged to fight the predators once again before running for cover. (Photo by Jerome Guillaumot/Barcroft Media)

Rescue Dogs Wedding

1202 Rescue Dogs Wedding

When wedding photographer Katie Yeaton saw that one of her dogs had white fur and the other had black-and-white fur, she did what only a wedding photographer could do: she threw them a backyard wedding complete with professional photography to remember the day.

“I realized they’d be perfect as a bride and groom and took just one photo and posted it to Facebook”, Yeaton, 30, of Norwalk, Conn., told ABC News. “So many people loved it that I decided to do a whole wedding”. The photos of Yeaton’s backyard affair for her pups, rescue dogs Lucy and Teddy, were so well received that she is now fielding even more requests for festive canine photography in addition to her usual wedding beat. “My main goal is that I just hope it makes people smile”, she said.

Monkey Selfie

These are the chimp-ly marvellous images captured by a cheeky monkey after turning the tables on a photographer who left his camera unmanned. The inquisitive scamp playfully went to investigate the equipment before becoming fascinated with his own reflection in the lens. And it wasnt long before the crested black macaque hijacked the camera and started snapping away sending award-winning photographer David Slater bananas. David, from Coleford, Gloucestershire, was on a trip to a small national park north of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi when he met the incredibly friendly bunch.
