Whatever city or country you travel to, I can almost guarantee that you’ll come across a stray dog or two. The sad part of all this is that these dogs were abandoned and left to fend for themselves. Some dogs are even abandoned at a very young age.
A lot of puppies don’t survive as a stray. If they do survive, it’s mostly thanks to humans handing out food or that the surviving puppies have good scavenging skills. These dogs don’t deserve to be abandoned. They deserve to have a loving family, and they deserve to have a forever home.
Damian Macchi is a cross-country cycling enthusiast. He often goes on training near his home in Argentina to prepare to compete and also to keep his fitness at an optimum level. Damian is also an animal rights advocate.
While doing routine training in a dirt road located a few miles outside of town, Damian spotted something out of the corner of his eye. There was movement on the thick overgrowth that seemed to be following him. Damian didn’t think much of it at first because of being too focused on his training. However, Damian felt concerned, and he decided that he needed to do something.
Damian didn’t know what type of animal he was dealing with, but he decided to turn around and have a look. Thankfully, Damian turned his bike around. Damian spotted the creature again, and this time he had a clearer view.
The animal that was following Damian was a tiny puppy. Its owners seemingly abandoned the puppy. Damian figured that the puppy was used to humans as it ran straight towards him after he stopped. The puppy whimpered and seemed to ask Damian for help.
The tiny puppy was so thrilled that Damian was there, and Damian also felt sorry for the puppy. Damian’s cross-country cycling training ended and turned into a rescue mission. Damian scooped the puppy, and he rode his bike back home.
After taking the puppy to the veterinarian, Damian posted his story on social media, where it went viral. Thanks to Damian, it didn’t take long for the tiny puppy to finally have a forever home with a loving family. The puppy was named Juanita and is doing very well with her new family. Here’s a heartwarming video of how Damian rescued Juanita.
