A beautiful puppy found in a dumpster can expect a long and happy life thanks to an animal lover’s daily routine. Rescuer Takis Proestakis finds dogs almost every day at the local dump. In fact, it was the rescue of an abandoned dog at the dump that led him to found the Takis Shelter.
On the Greek island of Crete, unwanted dogs are often left as garbage. As the trash makes its way to Takis’ shelter, he inevitably returns home with another dog. That’s what happened the day Takis discovered Samu.
Samu almost blended into his surroundings. His white fur was the same color as the mattress he hid behind. ,,We’re back.” Takis says in the rescue video as he pulls his dog Zoe out of the car. Takis hopes that Zoe will help him pull the puppy to him, and he succeeds.
Once the puppy is safely in the car, Takis can’t help but admire him. ,,Look at that cute face.” he says, noting that the puppy’s collar is still blue.
