Beautiful and inspiring dog stories are not just from the United States or Europe. You can also read amazing stories about dogs from other parts of the world, like in the Philippines.
Rosa, a local dog breed in Cebu, Philippines, has captured the heart of a Spanish guy who stayed for several months there.
Rosa can be seen wandering on the streets near Southwestern University. Since her breed is the usual one, no one pays so much attention to her.
A foreigner noticed Rosa. She was skinny and probably lonely too. The foreigner also noticed that there is something wrong with Rosa. He saw that she has some bleeding on her vagina.
One day, the foreigner tried to give Rosa some leftovers. Since Rosa is not used to human attention, she ran away. However, after she sensed that the foreigner wouldn’t do any harm, she eventually approached him and ate the food.
Rosa must be so hungry that she choked on eating a bone. Good thing she vomited the bone that blocked her airways.
The foreigner then decided to feed Rosa every day. This time, Rosa didn’t run away.
The foreigner got so attached to Rosa that he even thought of rescuing her from the streets. What stops him from doing so is that his stay in Cebu is just temporary.
He thought of finding someone who can help Rosa with her health condition.
He met Dan, a Swiss citizen who heads the MARO (Mayari Animal Rescue Association). Every day, Dan would be seen riding a motorcycle carrying a suitcase with medicines and food for animals). He also rescues animals in the worst conditions and brings them back to his home.
Sadly, Dan’s space at home is not enough to rescue all the animals on the streets. Dan cannot rescue Rosa in the meantime. He can only promise daily medication and food for Rosa while waiting for a space in his home to take care of her.
Since then, Rosa got better. However, she still needs medical care. The foreigner found out that Rosa has a pyometra, a life-threatening condition, which needs to be treated immediately.
After the surgery, Dan was able to find a space for Rosa in his residence. Unfortunately, due to Rosa’s age, she might not get immediately adopted.
The foreigner is now back to Spain, but he never fails to communicate with Dan and to get some updates about Rosa.
