A poor dog’s fortune dramatically turned around thanks to a touching note tied to collar, after his owner sadly passed away. Left homeless, the hapless pooch’s fate seemed sealed, yet his tragic story had the happiest ending, thanks to a very emotional letter.
The sad dog, named Chester has been spotted wandering around a market Santa Anita, Lima, Peru. A note tied to his collar caught the attention of a kind woman named Nataly Oblitas, who stopped and read the heartbreaking message, that eventually saved Chester’s life.
“Hello, my name is Chester,” the written in Spanish, read. “Please help me. My owner passed away and I have nowhere to go, do not ignore me.”
Turns out the dog’s owner had a market stall where Chester was found. After the man’s passing, the heartbroken dog went at the market with the hope of finding him. After several days, the other market traders noticed the loyal dog won’t leave his late human’s stall, so they wrote a note meant to help him finding a new home.
Thankfully for Chester, he met his rescuer in the kindhearted Nataly. The woman also volunteers for the local shelter Huellitas Felices Perú (Happy Little Footprints Peru), so he brought the helpless dog in. Unfortunately, after an examination at the vet, turned out the poor Chester wasn’t in the best medical condition. His eyesight was affected due a rare condition called ehrlichiosis and he had to undergo a life-saving surgery. One of his eyes had to be removed, but his life was saved at least.
But Nataly’s noble gesture didn’t stopped here. She then shared Chester’s story online hoping to find him a forever home. The post went viral and in less than a day, a loving family adopted him.
“Just waiting for his mommy to arrive soon to take him to CANADÁ to start his new adventures, and until the time comes (he will be) in a temporary home where he is loved him very much,” Huellitas Felices wrote.
