Thought i'd like to share this amazing story here.
Jonas was a mongrel, and will be remembered forever in the Higino's oral history. In December 2017 Pedro Higino Marques da Silva went for a ride with Jonas, and doing so he decided to see a river with Jonas. He sitted on the rocks, but not with his dog, when he was about to return he slipped and fell back to the sea, and, screaming, Jonas noticed. This was when Jonas went to rescue Pedro, by biting his shoulder and diving back to the rocks.
Pedro came home with Jonas, crying, and told his father, Salvador Marques da Silva, the incident. The two cried and hugged Jonas, specially Pedro. Jonas is now remembered as a hero in the Higino's family.
Jonas died on August 18, 2018 of consequences of an infection. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/192348440?
