Just because someone is unlucky doesn’t imply they aren’t full of love.
Look no farther than this homeless man named Choco and his two adorable puppies, Shaggy and Nena.
A park-goer in the Colombian city of Bucaramanga observed a nice scene unfolding on some steps nearby the other day. Amidst the cool night air, Choco and his pets took a seat together.
This wasn’t going to be any old night for these three close friends, as it became apparent almost immediately. It was a memorable evening
As the bystander looked on, Choco placed a party hat atop each of the pups’ heads. Soon, he revealed a cake and candles. And then he began to sing.
It was Shaggy’s birthday, and Choco was throwing him the sweetest little party:
After ending the video, the person filming approached Choco to learn his name and story, and to offer help to him and his dogs. But after the clip was posted online, many more people would follow suit.
Turns out, Choco has spent the last several years living on the streets after escaping an abusive home. All the while, he’s seen to it that Shaggy and Nena never go without.
And now strangers are doing the same for him.
Choco and his dogs have received a lot of aid from kind-hearted strangers after the tragedy.
And the park where he frequents has become a gathering spot for other animal lovers, who’ve come to donate food and supplies — and to have Choco pose for pictures with their own pups.
Nena and Choco may soon be back on their feet owing to the support they’ve received.
In the meantime, seeing the love shared between them, it’s clear they already have something more priceless than gold.
