rescued abandoned puppy

A police officer in Novo Horizonte, Brasil saw his neighbours dog digging through the trash. When he got closer he saw that the dog was rescuing an abandoned puppy.


The dog was digging through a pile of garbage bags when the police officer spotted her. He walked over to her to see what she was doing, he thought the dog had found a deceased kitten. She had a tiny puppy gently clutched between her teeth and was attempting to carry it to safety.

The puppy was alive and well but a slightly stinky from the trash. The officer went to remove the puppy from it’s rescuer but once the puppy was taken away from her, she started whining and didn’t want to be away from the small abandoned puppy.

The officer called a local animal rescuer, Marco Antonio Rodrigues, for help. He let his neighbours dog sit with the puppy until the rescuer arrived to take it.

“She played the most important role by saving the puppy,”

The puppies rescuer was an amazing help but sadly as the puppy is so young she needed to feed and the rescue dog was not able to provide any milk so Marco Antonio Rodrigues reached out to everyone on Facebook asking if anyone had a dog that was nursing puppies.

A dog was found and gladly let the little puppy feed. Lupi became the puppies foster mother and is caring for him until he will be old enough to be adopted. The puppies markings inspired a cute name for him, Chaplin. Chaplin has a black mustache across his upper lip.

“One dog found the puppy in the trash and another is being his mom, what a beautiful thing!”

This story has a very happy resolution and we can’t wait to here how his story continues.
