Heroic Dog Picks Up Trash and Recycles It

Jan 21, 2016

Meet Paris. She's a 9-year-old Boxer living in Bodmin, England, with her owner, Fran Hodges. Whenever she goes out for walks, Paris always picks up recyclable materials — mostly plastic bottles and aluminum cans — and carries them to the nearest bin.

Hodges insists she's never trained Paris to do this. She says her dog has been doing it since she was a puppy and it's just a part of her. Last month, Hodges set up a Facebook page to document Paris's recycling missions. Look, here's Paris being really cute and really environmentally conscious:

As Hodges says, "She just won't walk past a piece of litter without attempting to pick it up and take it with her for the rest of the journey."
