Home Sweet Home

Most street dogs here live a really rough life. The lucky ones are fed by kind people, but often have to resort to finding shelter where they can during cold and inclement weather. I've followed this little guy's life over the past year. As a puppy, he was cared for by the construction workers from the apartment complex in the background, sleeping wherever he could find a place. Now the workers have gone, and it seems someone else has made an elaborate home for him. He's got a waterproof house with a terrace, two doors, comfy blanketing inside, and a roof decorated with a dog motif! A dog's life indeed!

What a sweet face he has. I'd love to bring him home.

Somebody loves him!

It must have been quite a shock for him when the workers moved on! I'm so glad that somebody has such a kind heart! Great capture Bibi!

There are kind and considerate hearts everywhere, thank goodness. It's heartening to see evidence of it.

I would say "poor pup" but he's probably in better shape than many dogs out there on his own.

He seems to have a collar. His house is really cute.

The kindness of strangers never ceases to amaze me. He is adorable. I'm hooked now on this little Serb.

I hate the thought that there are animals out there with no food or shelter from the cold.

There are too many stray and unloved animals in the world. I wish our fellow humans would extend more compassion and take care of these dogs, cats, horses...any of them...as they should be taken care of. My DH and I are in Mexico for three months as we usually do each winter. Jim volunteers at an animal shelter three times a week and both of us work on an annual fundraiser for the shelter so that animals can be neutered, fed and have medical attention. Makes our time here more meaningful! Wish someone would adopt this fella.
