It is almost unbelievable that anybody would abandon an animal on the side of the road or anywhere, for that matter. Sadly, it does happen, but there are always good samaritans willing to help in situations like these on the bright side.
This man goes up the same hill every day for work, but he found something unbelievable one day.
The video starts with the man telling us how his country is poor, and not many people live there. Every day he goes up the hill to work and goes home around noon. This day he came across something so sad he never thought he would see.
To his dismay, there was a puppy in a crate, with sacks wrapped around her body so she couldn’t move. She was crying the whole time and continued to cry when she saw him, much like she was pleading for help. At first, the man was unsure what to do, but he knew he had to help.
When he approached the crate, the puppy wasn’t afraid; she wanted his help badly. Once the man started petting the puppy, she stopped crying as if she knew help had finally arrived. He gently tore the sack off her, and she was finally able to move freely.
After freeing the puppy from the sack, he fed her some meat, which she couldn’t get enough of.
After getting free from the filthy sack, the man decided to give her some meat, which she ate in about two seconds. Who knows the last time this dog was able to eat or was fed. Watching her eat the food is a happy moment and sad, knowing she probably hadn’t eaten in a while.
Who knows what would have happened if the man didn’t come across this puppy on his way home from work? It is a scary thought to have. Luckily, this puppy was rescued and hopefully is living a great life after this horrific incident.
This puppy’s story is heartbreaking, and sadly it isn’t the only one out there.
According to statistics, only one out of every 10 dogs will find a permanent home, which is extremely sad to think about; who would’ve known that to be so low. It is also impossible to determine just how many strays are out there; for cats, the estimate is around seventy million alone.
Many strays are lost pets that weren’t kept properly indoors or provided with identification, and the way this puppy was found goes to show it was probably their owner who left them there. At the beginning of the video, he did say he lived in a poor country, so maybe the owners couldn’t afford the sweet pup anymore.
Although these statistics are scary and sad, there are plenty of little things we can do.
If you find a lost pet, we can do plenty of things to help that animal. The first thing recommended is to capture it and contain it with care, which means trying and keeping it in your care; if the stray allows you to, always approach it gently because it can be scared of humans.
If you cannot rescue it, call the authorities, so they are on the lookout for the poor animal. However, if you can get it, check for any form of identification, including getting it scanned for a microchip. These are just a few of the many things we can do to help strays.
There are also many foundations we can donate to help strays in any way they need help. This man’s kindness saved this dog’s life; let’s all try to be like this and make the world a better place.
