Although Negrita was still quite weak, her sweet and gentle personality shone through more and more each day as she gained back her strength. She followed Foster around the boat constantly, and was always wagging her tail at him. After about four days of caring for her, Foster had made up his mind: He was going to bring Negrita home to the UK.
At home, Foster operates PlayforStrays, a charity that brings donated toys to abandoned shelter pets across the world. He had recently traveled to Natureza em Forma, a shelter in São Paulo, Brazil, to deliver toys — and had a feeling they might be able to now help him.
