To this day, Moon the Shih Tzu has taken a total of 74 kittens under his wing in an Australian veterinary clinic.
It seems that this special pup has a certain talent to reassure and put in trust the small felines ill or waiting to be adopted.
Moon this 5-year-old Shih Tzu has also become known as the best babysitter for kittens.
Moon is the dog of Kate Hayes, a veterinary nurse at Warwick Veterinary Hospital, near Perth, Australia. He spends most of his time in this establishment where he became the adoptive father of young animals in distress, especially cats.
Moon a loving Shih Tzu
It all began 4 years ago when his owner welcomed a three-legged cat named Phoenix. After her surgery, she had recovered in Kate’s home. What was her surprise when she realized that the cat and her dog were quickly attached to each other. Phoenix, who was rather nervous and suspicious, changed her attitude completely when she was with Moon. She was much more gentle and serene.

As Kate Hayes tells Animal Channe, when Moon hears kittens meowing, his ears stand up and he always goes looking for them, and then starts fondling them with his muzzle. His owner adds that the Shih Tzu “is more attached to sick kittens, it’s like he understands that something was wrong with them and he becomes very protective.”
Moon has developed a very special link with kitten called Stumbelina; this little female suffers from cerebellar hypoplasia, a neurological disease that makes her movement and balances difficult. He followed her everywhere and when she collapsed, he helped her to get back on her feet.
All the kittens he “adopted” were transformed and supported by his presence and his kindness, as was Phoenix. Most were adopted.
But the dog Moon has also helped two dogs, including Moe, a three-legged American Bulldog. He also found the support he needed from this great Shih Tzu, as can be seen in the picture below.

The story of this service dog born without eyes is overwhelming and unique! An example and an inspiration to us all …
Joanne George, the owner of the Golden Retriever service dog, saved Smiley.
Suffering from Dwarfism, born without eyes, and supposedly sentenced to death at the age of two, he survived thanks to her. Almost 10 years after all these adventures, he continues to help those in need! “People are so inspired by what it represents”, explains Joanne. “I realized that this dog was destinated for therapy, I had to share it.”
Shortly after this realization, the dog got the certificate to become a service dog and joined the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program. He spends several hours each day visiting patients in retirement homes, he also goes to hospitals to see sick children.
For the past 7 years, Smiley has taught people to not to stop at disability, illness, past. “Dogs can come back from nowhere, they can forget their past,” Joanne says, “we as humans, we focus on our past.”
One of Smiley’s visits was particularly noteworthy.
Teddy, an elderly man, whom Smiley often sees in a nursing home, does not speak and he was unable to communicate. “One day, Smiley put his paws on Teddy, and he started to smile and make noise”, says Joanne. “All the nurses came back into the room and said they had never seen him smile, or even have such a reaction.”
From now on, whenever Smiley comes to this retirement home, Teddy is the first person who comes to see.
“I believe that’s when I noticed how inspiring it can be for people,” says Joanne George.
But at 12, Joanne explains that unfortunately, it is closer to the end than the beginning. “He came to my first date”. “He is the ring-holder at my wedding, he was there when I was pregnant he changed my life.”, she adds
Smiley has also changed the lives of hundreds of men, women, and children.
Today, his fur is perhaps a little more graying, his steps a little less vivid, but his tail will never stop moving in all directions!
