A journalist in Brazil recently shared a photo on Facebook that has gained much adoration touched everyone’s heart.

The picture, taken by her fiancé shows their adopted puppy Lana sharing her warm, cozy blanket with a stray dog on a particularly chilly morning, reports the NDTV.

Eight-month-old Lana was adopted by Schaumloeffel and her fiance last year. About two weeks ago, Schaumloeffel writes on Facebook that she took a heavy blanket to cover Lana in her doghouse so she would be warm enough overnight.

The next morning, on July 4, her fiancé saw an unusual sight: Lana curled up on her blanket on one side of the fence and a stray dog fast asleep on the blanket on the other side of the fence. He could not help but stop and take a picture of the sweet moment.

Suelen Schaumloeffel posted a detailed note with the picture.

‘And when the animals give you an example of generosity?

From the inside of the fence lives the Lana, a happy, affectionate and very nice little dog. This week Lana won a new deck to face the cold and also made a friend in the street (the guy outside the fence). Last night, before bed, we tucked the cover of the Lana in the little house so she could curl up and sleep. Seeing the friend without a home and cold, Lana did not hesitate to share the deck. He led the way to the fence and offered his friend a piece. Each on one side of the fence, but both warm.’

‘She is the nicest little dog I’ve ever met,’ Ms Schaumloeffel tells The Dodo. ‘We forget sometimes the difference we can make in someone’s life. She reminded me of this.’

She adds the couple has started leaving food and water out for the stray dog and are hoping to help him find a permanent home soon.

‘I thought, ‘How beautiful what she did for her friend,’’ Schaumloeffel tells The Dodo. ‘My best four-legged friend reminded me of something so important: generosity!’
