With so many sad cases of abandoned pets, it’s refreshing to see a story with a truly happy ending.
One day, a man named Goran Marinkovic who takes care of stray animals found a little surprise in the form of an abandoned puppy sleeping next to a shoe.
The pup was hungry and ill, so Goran took him in and helped him to recover, and grow into the beautiful pup he knew he could be.
When Goran found him, he was surrounded by trash and he looked very unwell.

He used the shoe he was found next to, to help shield him from the elements.
The pup was all alone with no sign of a mother, or a relative around that could help take care of him.
In an interview with Boredpanda, Goran spoke on his actions: “I save animals that are endangered, that live on the street. I take care of animals because I love them, I love animals equally everything, cats, dogs, others…”
Goran fed the malnourished pup and took him straight to the vets for a checkup.
After being treated by the vet, Goran took him home, gave him food, drink, shelter, and more importantly a lot of love.
He named the pup Smesten and adopted him himself!
Smesten is a very energetic and playful pup.
In Gorans house, he has lots of siblings he can play with, despite being much smaller than the rest of them
After six months of loving care, Smesten is practically unrecognizable
Thanks to the help from Goran, Smesten can now live a full happy life!
Thank you Goran, you are a true hero and the world needs more people like you!
