Growing up in poverty is a tough situation for any child. Though circumstances can often look bleak, it is the care and love of those around you that can help keep your spirits high. For these kids living in Santa Catarina, Brazil, a local dog has become one of their best friends.
Dogs and children go together like peanut butter and jelly. Their natural sense of playfulness, curiosity and free-spiritedness make the two a natural pair. For those that have been fortunate enough to grow up around animals, some of the best childhood memories are forged when playing with them. However, the dog in this video has come up with a really unusual way of playing with her friends.
