Earlier this month, João was walking home from school in Brazil when he happened upon a life that needed saving. There, stranded on the path in front of him, was a lonely white puppy whose predicament João simply could not ignore.
"I was upset, because was he was alone and very cute, and seemed to be hungry," João told Globo News. "I took him to the pharmacy that I pass by every day."
Outside the pharmacy, a bowl of food and water is left out for stray dogs. So, figuring that would be the safest place, João loaded the pup in his pack and carried him there. Unbeknownst to him, a security camera was recording João's touching act of love.
