When this dog lover went for his usual walk with his Dalmatian near the mangroves in Puerto Rico, he never guessed that they wouldn’t leave alone.
They were walking along a well-worn dirt path when his dog suddenly darted into the trees. Unsure over what caught his dog’s attention, the dog’s owner followed closely behind, unsure of what they’d find.
The man heard some sounds so he zoomed in with his camera and was shocked by what he saw. A tiny puppy was tucked into the tree trunks and crying out for help. The Dalmatian had clearly heard the puppy’s cries and zoomed to the rescue.
The man wanted to help the puppy so he decided to see if he could catch it. The scared puppy wasn’t having it and not going to make his rescue easy. When the man tried to pet him, the puppy even bit him!
Undeterred and committed to the pup’s rescue, he quickly devised a plan. He got a rug from his car, caught the puppy with it, and placed him in a cardboard box. The young pup was not going to be left to die in the woods on this kind man’s watch.
Once the puppy was secure, he tried to give him food and water. At first, the puppy was unwilling to eat but by taking it slow, he began to gain his trust and even began to touch the feisty little pup.
Thankfully, the puppy took a liking to his new Dalmatian friend, who loved having the pup around. Soon they were playing together and the little pup was getting a glimpse of what family life was like.
