Tamara Johnston, founder of Thai Street Paws Rescue, is used to seeing stray dogs every day. But one pup she came across looked much worse than the rest.
She stopped at a local shop for a drink when she noticed a two-month-old puppy on the road. The poor little pup was emaciated, yet his stomach was bloated. He was also covered in fleas and ticks, and was very nervous.
Locals told Johnston that his mom wasn’t in the area and that his sister had recently been hit and killed by a car. The puppy was now all alone and hung around the area, trying to find any food scraps he could to survive.
Without hesitation, Johnston carried the dog to her car and brought him to the vet. The pup, now named Basil, snuggled up against her during the car ride. He finally knew he was safe.
“I honestly believe it was a huge relief for him,” Johnston told The Dodo. “It was almost like he knew someone was going to help him. He didn’t move — he just snuggled into my arms and fell asleep. He knew he was safe.”
The vet gave him fluids and medications to help give his little weak body some energy. He will get vaccinated and neutered and will remain under Johnston’s care until he is ready for adoption.
Basil is now safe and he knows it. He is not the weak, terrified puppy he once was. Now he is healthy and confident, thanks to Johnston!

A sweet video of a little girl cuddling with her Pit bull and best friend has gone viral after it was revealed the dog is comforting her after an earthquake.
Adalynn’s father, Kyle Leary, shared that his daughter was having trouble sleeping after an earthquake hit Alaska in November 2018. Their home was badly shaken by the quake, leaving splits in their garage ceiling along with other repairs. The quake and the many aftershocks also scared their daughter.
That’s where her 100-pound “best friend and bodyguard for life” named Fury comes in.
Leary wrote on Facebook:
“We live in Alaska and recently got hit hard by a 7.0 earthquake and we’ve had over 5,000 aftershocks. Since then Ady has been having severe anxiety and trouble sleeping. The only way she’ll sleep is if Fury is in there with her to protect and ease her anxiety.”
“Normally he sleeps on the floor next to her bed but that night she called him up to cuddle him cause we had another aftershock.”
The baby cam caught the tender moment of Ady inviting Fury to cuddle with her. She makes sure that Fury is comfortable too and tucks him under the sheets so they both can get a good night sleep.
Leary also wanted people to know that Fury is the sweetest companion to his daughter, writing: “If you raise them with love, they only show love.”
