Thanks to a rescuer’s daily routine, a gorgeous dog found thrown away at a landfill has a long, happy life ahead of him.
Takis Proestakis, an animal rescuer, finds dogs virtually every day in the local garbage. In fact, Takis Shelter was founded as a result of his rescue of an abandoned dog in a garbage dump.
Unwanted dogs are frequently dumped like garbage at the garbage dump on the Greek island of Crete. Takis unavoidably drives home with another dog while the landfill is en route to Takis Shelter. That’s exactly what happened on this particular day, when Takis noticed Samu.
Samu almost blended in, his white fur matching the color of the mattress he was hiding under.
In the rescue footage (see below), Takis says, “Here we are again,” as he lets his dog, Zoe, out of his car. Takis thinks that Zoe will assist him in luring the puppy to him, and he is successful.
Takis can’t help but adore the dog once he’s safely in his car. “Look at this wonderful face,” he continues, noticing that the puppy is still wearing a blue collar.
Takis returns Samu to his refuge, which is located on a mountainside among an olive grove. The shelter is home to 300 dogs at any given moment.
Samu was initially shy, but the puppy soon relaxed in the presence of the other animals and began to play with the other dogs at the shelter.
Samu quickly attracts the attention of a foreign visitor who fosters dogs for Takis in her house in Finland. Samu arrives in Finland shortly after and befriends two other canines rescued from the Takis Shelter. He’s on his way to having the best life ever!
Wait till the conclusion of the video to see Samu’s heartwarming update!
