A poor dog’s fortune dramatically turned around thanks to a touching note tied to the collar, after his owner sadly passed away. Left homeless, yet his ᴛʀᴀɢɪᴄ story had the happiest ending, thanks to a very emotional letter.
The dog named Chester was spotted waiting outside a market in Lima, Peru, where his owner had worked before they ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ. A note tiҽd to his collar caught the attention of a kind woman named Nataly Oblitas, who stopped and read the heartbreaking message, that eventually saved Chester’s life.
“Hello, my name is Chester,” the written in Spanish, read. “Please help me. My owner ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ and I have nowhere to go, do not ignore me.”
Turns out the dog’s owner had a market stall where Chester was found. After the man’s ᴘᴀssɪɴɢ, the heartbroken dog went to the market with the hope of finding him. After several days, the other market traders noticed the loyal dog won’t leave his late human’s stall, so they wrote a note meant to help him find a new home.
Thankfully for Chester, he met his rescuer in the kindhearted Nataly. The woman also volunteers for the local shelter Huellitas Felices Perú (Happy Little Footprints Peru), so he brought the helpless dog in.
Nataly said on social media that they took in Chester after speaking to traders on other market stalls, who confirmed the dog had been alone since his owner ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ.
Unfortunately, after an examination at the vet, turned out the poor Chester wasn’t in the best medical condition. His eyesight was affected due to a rare condition called ᴇʜʀʟɪᴄʜɪᴏsɪs and he had to undergo life-saving surgery. One of his eyes had to be rҽmovҽd, but his life was saved at least.
But Nataly’s noble gesture didn’t stop here. She then shared Chester’s story online hoping to find him a forever home. The post went viral and in less than a day, a loving family adopted him.
“Just waiting for his mommy to arrive soon to take him to CANADÁ to start his new adventures, and until the time comes (he will be) in a temporary home where he is loved him very much,” Huellitas Felices wrote.
