A modest gesture can sometimes change the course of a tiny creature’s life when it is in desperate need of assistance. This little puppy’s days had been nothing but difficult, but his fortunes changed when a kindhearted man came upon him.
Even while this heartbreaking story has a happy ending thanks to a hero, there are countless other instances like this, with small creatures abandoned on the side of the road as if they were useless. Perhaps it is time for humanity to recognize that all beings have feelings and deserve to be cared for.
Fortunately, people like Goran Marinkovic still care about the world we live in, especially those creatures that can’t fend for themselves, such as stray animals. One day, while traveling the roads of Serbia in search of stray animals, he stumbled across a sight that broke his heart. A little puppy that had found refuge in a shoe was sitting there, starving and surrounded by trash.
Goran understood the defenseless puppy had been abandoned because there was no evidence of his mother or other dogs. So he stepped up, rescued him, and forever changed his life!
“I save endangered animals that live on the street,” the generous man explained in an interview with Bored Panda. “I take care of animals because I adore them; I adore all animals, cats, dogs, and others.”
Goran initially fed and watered the sick puppy, whose condition appeared to be deteriorating, before taking him to the clinic. After obtaining medical treatment, the adorable little guy made his way to Goran’s house, which became his forever home when the man who saved him decided to adopt him.
Here, the dog named Smesten received not just food and proper care, but also the love and comfort he craved. Smesten looks so different now, a few months after he was discovered abandoned!
