Holliday was rescued by Caitlyn Beebe when she was just a puppy, looking for a home from Felines and Canines in Chicago. It was on a later visit to Beebe's parents that Holliday learned there were other animals who needed rescuing, too — like distressed earthworms who'd become stranded in the hot sun after a heavy rain.
The dog clearly took note. And incredibly, she remembered just what to do about it.
"When Holliday was little and we would go for walks with my mom, my mom would pick up worms from the road and throw them in the grass. Soon, Holliday started doing it too!" Beebe told The Dodo. "Now she does it all the time and will scour the road for lost earthworms and bugs to save. She will run over so excited, pick them up as gently as she can in her mouth, and then put them in the grass."
Recently, Beebe caught Holliday's sweet, lifesaving behavior on video.
