Watch: Dog thinks all lives matter and gently saves earthworms from the sun

Earthworms saved

Holliday the rescue Border Collie mix that has started to rescue stranded bugs and earthworms while out on her walks. She gently picks them up and moves them.


A video of Holliday the rescue border collie rescuing earthworms went viral and left people with questions. They wanted to know why Holli saves the worms? How she knows they need saving and how she knows the grass is the best haven?

The answer for the questions is simple, because dogs are awesome! Holli’s mom shared her story and thoughts about why she thinks Holli is such a sweetheart.

“This is my dog, Holliday, a border collie/German shepherd mix. I rescued her from Felines & Canines in Chicago when she was a puppy. Holliday is picking up and saving live earth worms from the hot road. She gently picks them up in her mouth and then carries them over to the grass.”

“On walks, she will run around the neighborhood and look for stray earth worms and bugs to save. She will spot the worms far in advance, and run over as fast as she can to save them. Sometimes, she even tries to save the dried, dead ones.”

“She was never taught this behavior, although when she was a puppy, my mom would take the earth worms from the road and throw them in the grass. The only way I can think that Holliday learned this behavior, is from watching my mom when we come home for the weekends. Holliday has been doing this for about a year and a half now.”
