A homeless man put the needs a little chihuahua ahead of his own in Salt Lake City. As a result of his kindness and selflessness, he also received some much-needed help himself.
One Salt Lake City resident, Angel Janes noticed a man sitting near a freeway exit on her way home. He was holding a sign asking for money or work, but she noticed something unusual –He was cradling a little dog in a blue blanket on his lap.
Janes stopped to offer a cigarette and after talking to Ron she found out he had rescued the little dog after seeing a woman dump him on the busy road from her car.
Ron didn’t want the little guy to be homeless like he was. He knew he needed help.
“HE WAS NOT GOING TO LET THIS DOG GET RAN OVER OR HURT, HIS FIRST INSTINCT WAS TO GO OUT OF HIS WAY TO SAVE THIS POOR PUPPY. RON BELIEVES THAT EVERY LIFE MATTERS AND MADE IT HIS GOAL TO GO OUT OF HIS WAY TO SAVE THIS PUPPY AND FIND HIM A HOME. WHAT IS EXTRAORDINARY ABOUT THIS SITUATION IS THAT RON DOESN’T HAVE A HOME HIMSELF, YET HIS GOAL WAS TO FIND THIS ABANDONED PUPPY A HOME,” SAID ONE WITNESS ON FACEBOOK.
While Ron was enjoying the company of the little Chihuahua, he knew he deserved a shot at finding a home too. Angel posted about the situation on her Facebook page, and soon a friend joined her, sharing the story to a group for vegans called Salt Lake Vegan. In just minutes, a woman named Lisa and her child were on their way to rescue the puppy.
Now at the scene, the group was overcome with emotion and crying as they thanked Ron for saving the little dog. Lisa decided to offer Ron money for saving the dog, but he wasn’t interested. He just wanted the dog to have a happy life. Open Next Page Below To See More
