Earlier this week, Micha Porat found 13-year-old Osita wandering alone in South Beach, reports CBS Miami.

“The dog was in the middle of the street, looking scared and confused,” he said. “The cars were driving by and I was wondering what would a dog be doing in the middle of the street?”

His fatherly instinct kicked in.

Porat pulled over on the side of the road and with the help of other good Samaritans, was able to carry Osita to safety and back home with him, in hopes of finding her owner.

Rihanna and Drake reunite at birthday party

  Rihanna and Drake reunite at birthday party Exes Rihanna and Drake had a surprise reunion at a birthday party in Los Angeles over the weekend (08-09Apr17). On Sunday (09Apr17), Rihanna attended a kid's birthday party with her friend Melissa Forde and discovered Drake was also a guest. It is unclear whose party they attended, but the exes reportedly did not interact with each other. Videos of the stars at the bash were posted online, but the social media user's account has since been made private. The Umbrella hitmaker and Drake have dated on and off for several years and they reunited last year (16) as Drake declared his love for her at the MTV Video Music Awards. They were caught locking lips on stage not long after the awards ceremony when Rihanna joined her boyfriend onstage during his Summer Sixteen Tour in September (16). However, by December (16) the relationship had once again fizzled out and Drake reportedly moved on to Jennifer Lopez after he attended two of the superstar's residency gigs in Las Vegas and hosted an intimate party she attended. They were coy about the nature of their relationship, which is said to have cooled off in early February (17), but Jennifer subsequently claimed they had simply been working together. Meanwhile, in October (16), Rihanna opened up about her failed relationships with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, who assaulted her in 2009, rumoured beau Leonardo DiCaprio and Drake, insisting she isn't to blame for the break-ups. "None of my exes are married or in happy relationships so it's safe to say I wasn't da (sic) problem lol (laugh out loud)," a text posted on her Instagram account read.
