This Dog Was Found Starving To Death On A Remote Island. But Six Months On She’s A Different Animal

  • After the rush of David Foster’s daily life, it was a relief to be on holiday – in the Amazon, no less. That’s why what he saw next struck him as so strange. Was that an emaciated dog on a nearby beach in the middle of nowhere? And then the bag of bones ran towards him.

    Foster, from Northern Ireland in the U.K., isn’t a man prone to sitting still. His daily job, which involves equipment for the medical industry, requires a lot of traveling. But he also has a fulfilling personal side project focused on his real love – dogs.

    In December 2017, Foster told website iHeartDogs how he first decided to combine his work and his passion. “All this traveling is boring. So I would go to local animal shelters wherever I may be, and give a few toys or balls for their animals.”

    With the help of his friends and relations, these acts of animal kindness took on their own momentum. Whenever Foster went away on business, people donated toys for him to give to the shelters. In time, he had social media followers sending gifts to take, too.

    The upshot was that Foster had enough regular donations to form a charity called Play for Strays. And after many months of hard work combined with shelter visits, the animal-lover decided to take a well-earned break. His holiday of choice was a relaxing cruise up the Amazon in Brazil.

    I think that what that poor dog went through is shameless & cruel. I’m so glad that this guy was so willing to do anything, within reason, to not only get treated but he was willing to do his utmost best to get her back to the UK so that she could go live with him there.

    Another case where the right person was at the right place at the right time and people say Miracles don't happen.

    So this video does show a few photo's of her she's the black dog i believe I've seen the real story awhile ago, but what's the purpose of this video showing all these different people and dog's that has nothing to do with the real story?? Or is it just to get views on some one else's page?

    Why do you show all these stills that are unrelated to the story. You got rid of a human to do the voiceover and now you don't have anyone to show a consistent video. Why would anyone watch this sloppy, pointless mess?
