If there’s just one thing that can unite the world, it’s cute animals. Just look at this precious little doggo:
JUST LOOK AT HER.
Sadly, cute puppies don’t just spawn from sugars and rainbows. This particular pup was found in a drain, too weak to even walk properly.
Spoiler alert: the doggo is fine and now leads a happy doggo life. You can stop being worried because this is her now:
Rosie, the black mongrel, had a recovery so inspirational that The Dodo, a popular social media channel for uplifting animal stories picked up and interviewed the owners @ohseewhyy and @meiyonnaise.
The post on TheDodo quickly blew up and got an astonishing 1.8 million views:
If you’re unable to watch the video for whatever reason, here’s what happened.
The Story Of Rosie, From Abandoned Pup to Healthy Doggo
On 2 April 2019, Oh Chin Ying found the six-week-old pup abandoned in a drain in Pasir Ris. Seeing that a heavy downpour was impending and the pup was too weak to even get up, he brought her to the nearest vet.
The emaciated Rosie was given her first meal in days, but the vet also diagnosed her with a bunch of diseases and gave a 40% chance of survival to even make it into the next day.
“Don’t be surprised if you wake up tomorrow and she’s gone.”
With love and care, Rosie survived the two days after getting picked up and slowly recuperated enough to take her first steps on her own.
And as a seven-week-old pup, she was able to display her personality:
So the movie cliches that love can conquer anything is true after all.
A full year later, Rosie is all grown up as a healthy doggo.
Oh, how did the owners know Rosie was six-weeks-old? They just guessed and anyhowly say that’s her age. Here’s Rosie celebrating her fake first birthday:
A montage of Rosie’s road to recovery can also be found on the owner’s Facebook page.
The happy doggo colours every single day she spends with her owners, and they remain eternally grateful to the friends and family who pitched in the money for Rosie’s treatment.
What a beautiful story.
I’m not crying. You’re crying.
Reminder: Not Every Doggo Has A Home
Unfortunately, the ugly side of an uplifting story like this is that there are many doggos like Rosie who did not get rescued.
Rosie’s owners remind us that “There are still thousands of stray dogs living without any food to eat, a roof over their heads, or a human to love them.”
They urge people who were moved by Rosie’s story to lend a hand to their local dog shelters (such as @asdsingapore), and to volunteer, donate, and adopt stray dogs.
