Gunnar was once a street puppy that had nothing of his own, not even a roof over his head or a soft spot to sleep. But even living in those deplorable conditions, he had the most generous heart.
Sadly, there are thousands of dogs living on the streets without a home or a human to love and care for them. This tiny puppy was one such dog. No one knows how he came to be in his situation, but he was too young to care for himself.
Thankfully, a passerby was kind enough to give him a scrap of bread. He was happy to receive the bread to fill his hungry belly but even so, bread alone cannot sustain a growing puppy for very long.
Thankfully, an animal rescue organization learned about the puppy and went in search of him. They found him living on a roadside in the dirt, still holding his slice of filthy bread, at risk of being hit by a car.
They approached the dog but rather than be fearful of the rescuers, the puppy was so happy to see them that he wagged his tiny tail and even offered them the only thing he had, his slice of bread.
The puppy who had nothing was so thankful to be found, he was willing to share his only food with the people there to help him. They were very touched. They named the puppy Gunnar and took him to the vet.
Gunnar was examined and given care. The rescuers were happy to learn that despite his odds, he was healthy so they were able to take him to the rescue facility where he would begin to live life being loved.
Once there, he was cleaned up and looked like a new puppy. His dirty fur now shined. He was happy in his new home and loved to run and play. He was a transformed puppy with much better days ahead of him.
Soon, a loving family adopted Gunnar and gave him a forever home. They even kept in contact with the rescuers and showed them videos of Gunnar as he grew up.
From street dog to loved pet, Gunnar was now living his best life. He grew up playing on the beach and digging in the sand, doing all the things that dogs love to do.
We’re so happy that Gunnar was saved and think he’s so cute. But it’s his generous heart that truly makes him so special. When he had nothing but a scrap of bread, the tiny puppy was willing to share it with the people there to save his life.
We hope you were as touched by Gunnar’s rescue story as we were. As always, please feel free to share with your friends.
