Injured Stray Dog Wanders Into Vet Clinic To Ask People For Help

 "When he came in, he put the injured paw forward, as if to say hello and to show that he was hurting"

Earlier in the week , an unexpected visitor made his way through the door of Dayse Ferreira's veterinary clinic in Brazil.



It was a sick and injured stray dog who came in search of help.


And that's exactly what he got.



Ferreira had just finished up with another client when she noticed the dog wander in — limping from a hurt paw. She and her colleagues were amazed to ascertain that he'd taken the initiative to hunt out their assistance all on his own. And he appeared to trust them immediately.


"When he came in, he put the injured paw forward, as if to mention hello and to point out that he was hurting," Ferreira told The Dodo. "We were surprised because he knew where to invite help."


Ferreira didn't wait to welcome the poor dog in.


Here's that moment on video:



After giving the dog a fast examination, Ferreira found that his paw wasn't too seriously injured. But it had been an honest thing he'd visited the clinic for an additional reason.


She'd discovered that the pup also had alittle tumor and was covered in fleas. Fortunately, both were treatable.


The dog was given a cleansing bath, and Ferreira put him on medication. But quite that, by seeking out help, the lonely dog found something even more.


He found hope.




Word has since spread about the vet clinic's surprise new patient, and adoption offers have come pouring certain when the time is true . His days as a lonely, unloved dog are officially over. And he seems to understand it.


"He doesn't even look sick. He just is so excited to be around people that care about him," Ferreira said.



Now, the formerly homeless dog's future has never looked brighter — because of both his own initiative find the right place to invite help, and to the people there who didn't hesitate to supply it.


"The most admirable thing is that he came on his own. His intelligence is gorgeous ," Ferreira said. "I'm sure he will find a home which will welcome him and receive him with all the love he deserves."
