Some people are angels disguised in humans, as what they do for those in need restores our faith in humanity and gives us hope that eventually things are going to get better. Tamara Johnson, the founder of Thai Street Paws Rescue is one of them. This fierce lady is an animal advocate and makes sure every stray dog she stumbles upon gets their happy ending.
This time, she shares the story about a two-month-old puppy she later named Basil who was found wandering the streets all by himself. The sweet baby had a bloated stomach and was all puzzled. The locals told Tamara how the pup’s mother was nowhere to be seen and his sister was hit by a car and died.
His health condition was pretty concerning and Tamara couldn’t just leave him there as he was very likely to suffer his sister’s faith if left all alone. He was way too tiny, and way too fragile to be able to fend for himself.
Without having any second thoughts, Tamara embraced the puppy and they headed to her vehicle. That’s when the sweetest thing ever happened. Basil snuggled up against his rescuer and his action melted our hearts.
“I honestly believe it was a huge relief for him,” Johnston told The Dodo. “It was almost like he knew someone was going to help him. He didn’t move — he just snuggled into my arms and fell asleep. He knew he was safe.”
Basil got the so much-needed medical assistance and is turning into one healthy and happy dog. Hopefully, Tamara would be able to find a forever home for him, and until that happens, he’s going to stay by her side.
Take a look at Basil’s life journey in the video below. We hope his story will inspire you to be the Tamara of a dog’s life.
