While taking a hike through a small mountain, a man heard puppy noises coming from underneath a pile of leaves. Curious, he went closer to investigate. He lifted some of the branches and underneath were five small pups, probably only a couple of weeks old. It was winter then and the dogs were freezing.
The man looked around looking for their mother, but he couldn’t find her. He thought about leaving them, but his kind heart wouldn’t allow it. He knew that the dogs might not last if they stayed there.
They were already shivering, and they might freeze to death. So he got a box, put all the puppies inside, and brought them to his office.
One day, the same man noticed a stray dog sitting on the opposite side of the road. She was staring directly at their building, just staying there motionless. He took pity on the dog as she looked very frail, so he went out and tried to get her. But every time he got too near, the stray pooch would run away.
So he took a bowl, put some food in it, and left it on the side of the road. When there were no humans around, the stray went to the food and ate it. Then sometime after, he noticed that the dog became bolder. She would go nearer and nearer to the building.
And one time, she went near the puppies. Although they were inside, she would look at them from the window.
The stray, which he started calling Nabi, would come every day, and he would feed her. But always from a distance. Whenever he tries to catch her, she would run away. But she always came back and go near the pups.
The man started thinking, could Nabi be the pups’ mom?
To check, he deliberately set the box by the door and left it open. He then left and hid. He saw Nabi going to the pups and the litter excitedly spilled out of the box, and then they started breastfeeding. This proved to him that Nabi was their mother.
The next day, he set up a makeshift dog house outside and left the puppies there. Nabi followed them inside when the darkness started setting in. For the whole night, the family stayed inside the warmth of the dog house.
The next day, the man checked on them and this time, Nabi didn’t run away. He took all of them to a vet and thankfully, everyone was healthy. He decided to adopt the whole family and gave them an even bigger space to stay in.
Thanks to this kind man, the family has a good home and they don’t have to worry about going hungry or freezing ever again.
