Dogs may seem like happy-go-lucky critters who just want playtime and cuddles. But they are also sensitive, and they can grasp the thoughtfulness of the people around them.
One dog in China shows that these canine companions are capable of appreciating kindness. This is after the pup has cried some tears of joy as a passerby has taken the time to feed it.
A heartbreaking yet hopeful encounter
A video clip of a woman’s encounter with a stray dog has been shared online, and it shows the sad life of the pup; it’s been roaming the streets of Jinzhong City in China’s Shanxi province. In the short video, the pooch can be seen begging for food. It does so by standing on its hind legs and swinging its front legs in the air.
Thankfully, the kind woman gives the pup some sausage. Upon receiving the food, the dog’s eyes start to tear up. It appears that the dog is overwhelmed by the person’s kindness.
The woman then offers the dog another piece of food. Once again, the dog’s eyes start to well up with tears.
This interaction is both heartbreaking and hopeful. It’s heartbreaking because the dog might have been born on the streets or abandoned by its family. And it’s hopeful since the woman proves that there are still humans that are kind to animals.
Hoping to find the dog again
The kind woman has tried to carry the dog, so she can take it home. However, it jumps from her hands.
The woman explains that the dog might have feared that she would grab it like the dog snatchers. This is because dog snatchers lure pups to the minivan with some treats before running away from the scene.
The unnamed woman has returned to the park, but she has noticed that the dog isn’t around. She says she might try her luck by asking the street cleaners.
Here’s to hoping that she and the teary-eyed pup will reunite again soon.
