In Rode, India, locals were touched by the compassion of a Rhesus macaque monkey who had adopted a homeless puppy. Town locals thought it was bizarre at first, but the apparent love between the two animals was too much to deny. This just goes to show you that love knows no species.

The monkey cares for the little puppy and keeps the little one close as if he were caring for his own baby.

The details of how the two met are unclear, but the puppy, who was likely born on the streets, seems well taken care of.

It’s remarkable that a difference in species didn’t keep this monkey from becoming a responsible parent to a puppy who otherwise would not have had anyone to care for him. That just goes to show you that compassion has no limit!

I was thinking just this week how arrogant we are , to assume we are the brightest and the best thing to live on this beautiful earth.Just look around at the animals, the insects, the plant life that Nature guides thru life, and how wisely it is accomplished. Of course there isn\'t a lot of interference from these beings on their journey thru life. We seem to be unable to follow Natures ways, and we certainly do a lot of interfering ! Just saying!!

I agree. I had a pet squirrel monkey as a teen and he was another member of my colorful family. His name was Adam. He loved all of the pets we had including Jingles, our parrot, our 3 cats and 2 dogs. He was a wonderful little guy full of life and love for his family..Monkeys should not be taken out of their natural habitat because climates don\'t always agree with their health. He died young because living in Chciago in the winter was way too cold for a Monkey from South America.

Animals are so compassionate and truly & GENUINELY do the things to other animal friends. I wish BOTH these sweet creatures should live a long life protecting each others lives, in India....where many people have no respect for animals at all...

PLEASE READ!!!! I know this might sounds crazy to everyone and seems too good to be true, but i am a living testimony to others who commented about this great hackers called Cindy. I was in search of loan to enhance my business when i got scammed 4 times by fake lenders who claimed to be loan lenders, i was so doomed that i got worse in debts that i was evacuated from my home secondary to the fact that i was unable to pay my bills. My business fold up that i could not even feed my family and i had no one to run to nor was ready to help, so i ran to the pastor for shelter with my family which he wholeheartedly received us. One morning i was on the internet trying to give it a try if i could get in touch with the real loan lenders so i could get back on my feet, i came across a comment of so many people thanking the great ATM HACKERS WORLD WIDE name cindy for giving them a blank ATM card that can withdrawn the sum of $5,000.00 per day. I found this too good to be true but due to my present condition, i decided to give it a try so i sent a mail to [email protected] and two days later i got a response and was told the procedures needed before getting the card thus i agreed i still find its too good to be true, so i proceeded in giving them what they required and i was shocked when i got a call from the courier three days later that i have a parcel in their possession which belongs to me and i was wondering what it was before this hackers gave me a call and told me that they got a mail from the courier that my parcel has been delivered so i rushed down to their office and i got my parcel and on getting home, i found out that is was my blank card,. so headed for the ATM machine The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it, it is not traceable and now i have money for business and enough money for me and my family to live on .and i almost passed out when i heard the machines counting and dispensed the sum of $5,000.00 Instant and now i have $60,000,00 . I pray if am dreaming, i don\'t ever want to wake up because i know that this still sounds too good but its the truth & am a living testimony that\'s why i decided to take my time to share my testimony to any one who might be interested She is giving it out for free to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught Cindy\'s email address is [email protected]

God bless the monkey and his puppy. The monkey is so selfless we\'d better follow his example.

Let s share this with the people who experiment on Monkeys - I just wonder why more people are not involved with signing off on petitions like this one: https://www.change.org/p/dogs-need-your-help-tell-congress-to-stop-cruel-taxpayer-funded-experiments and so many others. We don\'t need to test on animals to a great degree - certainly not for cosmetics , for cigarettes and other industry oriented products, of-course we shouldn\'t be testing on animals at all. Shoving corrosive chemicals down their throats so we can have more brand names like the ones for cleaning windows. There are alternatives. Viable scientific alternatives to testing on animals. Simply lives. Don\'t buy products that are tested on animals. Companies don\'t want to tell us anymore whether they test on animals or not. But as consumers, we have a right to know.

Absolutely agree with you. Billions of species are suffering tremendously just for being different... it\'s actually pathetic to know how cruel, dismissive, selfish, arrogant and racist some can be. We call ourselves "human" but if there\'s nothing humane left in us we are the cancer of any society. Many will not be afraid to destroy, grab, control, abuse, exploit, enslave, experiment on and kill others only to fulfil their own greedy, selfish, arrogant, crippled ideas, egos and needs. They mustn\'t be ignored, supported, encouraged and allowed. Silence is worst than evil. Being silent is no longer and option if we want to make our world a better place for ALL animals ( human or not). The following is for anyone who wants to know and do better.
