The video of a dog begging for water in the streets of Lima, the capital of Peru, is currently breaking the hearts of countless animal lovers around the world.
The street dog is filmed holding his water bowl in his mouth. Water is currently scarce in the South American country due to a drought. The dog is even so desperate that he carries a dirty bucket with him to beg for water and quench his thirst.
In the course of the video, you can see how an animal lover fills the bucket with water. But shortly thereafter, a bystander becomes aware of the dog and his bucket and tries to take the precious water away from him again. But the pelt-nose does not let that make with itself.
According to reports in the Daily Mail, the water company Sedapal was forced to suspend the supply of water in the Peruvian capital Lima because the water was conterminated with dirt. A devastating flood polluted all the waters, forcing the company to take this step.
But that’s when the misfortune really began. The newspaper further writes that more than a million people were forced to leave their homes. Meanwhile, the video and pictures of the helpless little dog went viral and caused shock around the world.
One user wrote underneath: “Just look at the face he makes when he’s being petted, it seems like he’s thinking “don’t even think about messing with me with this trick, I’m not going to give you my bucket”.”
Another added, “He also makes it seem like he’s looking for his master to show him “look I have water, where are you?”.”
Another comment goes, “I pray for this little guy that someone with a big heart and a home will adopt him soon.
One user concurs: “We pray that a family will take this dog in and take good care of him forever.”
Just heartbreaking to see the poor dog wandering the streets, looking for water.
