Goran Marinkovic, of Kraljevo, Serbia, was on his morning rounds when he came upon a tragic scene while walking to rescue the abandoned and starving animals. An abandoned puppy was discovered next to an old shoe that appeared to be used as a coat by the guy.
With no mother in sight, the young survivor was surrounded by rubbish and plastic bags; both were mercilessly abandoned to their fate. The puppy had been using the shoe as a shelter and was exhausted and weak.
According to Goran, who spoke to Metro UK:
“I turned around by mistake and noticed this small puppy. He was at the end of his patience. I quickly gave him a dinner, which he accepted because I usually carry dog food with me. Words can’t express how big the puppy was or how hungry he was. It was about the same size as a shoe.
As a refuge, Puppy utilized an old shoe.
The man took the dog to a veterinarian clinic, where they informed him that she was in good health following several tests. Smesten was her name, and he assisted her in her recovery.
Goran became even more in love with the young girl as she let forth her cheeky and lively nature.
After a few months, the lovely dog eventually won a woman’s heart, and she adopted her without hesitation.
“After several months, Smesten was adopted by a woman who really wanted her, and she now lives like a queen.”
Coco, the dog, no longer resembles the ill young girl Goran discovered next to a shoe in a rubbish bin. She has matured into a cheerful, fluffy puppy that is always looking forward to new adventures with her family.
Goran, for one, continues to save as many abandoned animals on Serbian streets as he can. Generally, the guy works alone, but he does occasionally receive assistance from friends and ordinary people to aid with veterinarian and feeding bills.
Last but not least, Goran assures:
“I provide food to the street animals that do not receive food from humans and do not have owners.”
