In a moving video that has captured the attention of animal lovers everywhere, a little creature was discovered seeking refuge in a kind stranger's car. The Imgur user, whose garage became an unexpected safe haven, shared the incredible story of how this abandoned dog's life took a remarkable turn.

The video begins with the narrator expressing their surprise at finding the dog wandering past their garage and eventually seeking solace in their car. Overwhelmed by compassion, they decided to provide temporary shelter for the scared and exhausted canine. The following day, they made the compassionate decision to take the dog to the vet.

To their relief, the vet determined that the dog was not suffering from mange, but rather a severe skin allergy caused by fleas. With this newfound knowledge, the caring individual wasted no time in giving the dog a much-needed bath and ensuring that it was not contagious. Feeling confident in their decision, they welcomed the furry friend into their home.

As days turned into weeks, a beautiful transformation unfolded before their eyes. The dog, once defeated and withdrawn, began to regain its spirit. At the two-week mark, the narrator noticed something truly moving – the dog started playing, a sign that it felt safe and loved in its new environment. This small act of joy brought a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment to the narrator's heart.

The video's comments section overflowed with positivity and support. One user simply stated, "Instant good boy, just add love," encapsulating the sentiment shared by many. Another person expressed their disdain for whoever abandoned the dog, hoping they would face consequences for their actions. However, the prevailing theme was one of gratitude for the kind-hearted individuals who rescue and care for animals in need. Comments such as, "There's a special place in Heaven for people who rescue dogs," and "There are good people in the world. Dogs just need to find them. Fortunately, this one did," echoed the collective appreciation for acts of compassion.

Amidst the uplifting comments, a touch of humor emerged when someone playfully suggested keeping the dog away from someone named Kristi Norm. Another user shared their own personal experience of finding a lost dog, reminiscing about the connection they felt and the lessons they learned about responsible pet ownership.

While the video showcased the newfound joy in the dog's life, it also highlighted the unfortunate reality of pet abandonment. One comment shed light on the distressing trend of senior dogs being abandoned in crop fields, leading to overcrowded shelters and foster homes. The importance of microchipping pets was emphasized to prevent future cases of lost pets.

The video ended too soon for some viewers, who expressed their desire to see more of the dog's happy and playful moments. The mention of a cat's disapproval added a lighthearted touch to the overall narrative.

This moving video reminds us of the power of compassion and how a simple act of kindness can transform a life. It serves as a testament to the resilience of animals and the invaluable bond they form with their human companions. Let this moving story inspire us to be more aware of the needs of our furry friends and to extend a helping hand whenever possible.

That's a dog that someone abandoned. I hope whoever did that is branded with hot irons on the inside of their sphincter in hell for every treat he gets.


There's a special place in Heaven for people who rescue dogs.


Instant good boy, just add love.


There are good people in the world. Dogs just need to find them. Fortunately this one did.


This is a lovely story.


Keep it away from Kristi Norm


Best dog I ever had we found that way. Or she found us if you prefer. My family and I were leaving a BBQ restaurant in FL when this fat dirty pitbull dragging a chain leash came up to us and just hopped in our car and gave us a look like "so where are we going?" We couldn't get her out so we took her home, best decision ever. Miss you Peanutbutter.


Some kindly cat let him into the distribution system.


once found a lost dog and he spent the night with us until we found the owner the next day. drove him over to his house and he got out of the car when we got there, he saw the owner and jumped right back in our car. I was young and hadn't had my own dog for very long so I didnt handle the situation the way i would today. After having dogs for almost 40 years now I look back and I would've tried to buy the dog off the person.


People are such monsters. Where I live, there seems to be a epidemic of people abandoning their senior dogs in the crop fields. All the shelters and foster homes are at capacity with senior dogs.
