Last year, when firefighter Mike Thawley of the Sacramento Fire Department noticed a dog suffering alone on the side of the road, he swooped her up and brought her back safely to the fire station. Her skin was clearly in bad shape, likely a result of neglect.

The kindhearted firefighters dried her off before placing her in good hands at the Front Street Animal Shelter. Though the rescue story is amazing in itself, the acts of kindness didn't stop there. Thawley went back to check on his new friend the next day, now known as Chunkie. You can tell in the video that the small gesture made this adorable dog's day.
