We’ve all heard the old adage, “a dog is a man’s best friend,” but every once in a while a story comes along that truly captures the special bond shared between humans and their canine companions.
One day in September of the year 2019, a man named Anuchit was cruising along a highway in Thailand on his motorcycle.
He saw a dog looking very despondent by the roadside. It seems as though the lonely puppy had been waiting for someone.
Saowaluck, a local resident, said she saw the dog multiple times in 2016 at that intersection.
She adopted him after taking him to the vet, where she gave him the name Leo. However, Leo was not seen for days.
Saowaluck came across him every day at the same highway intersection and provided him with sustenance and hydration. Despite her best efforts, he was not yet willing to accept her as his master.
The dog’s former owner came forward after hearing Leo’s story, which the motorcyclist shared.
Noi, an old lady, claimed that in 2015, Leo leaped out of her pickup truck.
She and her spouse had a frantic search but could not locate him.
Even after being rubbed and petted by Leo at his 2019 reunion with Noi at the corner, Noi still wouldn’t go home with him.
Saowaluck requested Noi to let her adopt the puppy twice; each time, she grew more connected to him and eventually asked to keep him.
