Kiara Alamo was eating dinner at a restaurant in Luquillo, Puerto Rico, when she noticed an unusual patron sitting near her table.
A skinny white dog was huddled in the corner of the establishment watching people come and go — his head was bent down in pain, and his eyes seemed to plead for help. Alamo couldn’t ignore the dog’s piercing stare.
“The face of that dog ... he was so sad and afraid of people,” Alamo told The Dodo. “[I could see in] his eyes that he needed so much love — I couldn’t leave him in that restaurant.”
