Sweet stray puppy wags tail at strangers trying to get noticed

July 24th, 2020

A team landed in Sri Lanka to conduct research concerning elephants. What they got, however, was a surprise from a much more petite stranger.

With a big wide world filled with stories to uncover, it can be quite burdensome to experience all of life’s magic alone. Needless to say, we need each other for support when the going gets tough and nothing seems to be able to remedy the ailment. The same could be said about dogs especially since their survivability almost completely depends on how we care for them.

In a place called Nuwara Eliya, located in Sri Lanka, a research trip was conducted by a team. Their aim was to study and document information about elephants when suddenly they encountered a stray dog in distress. The little doggo was very friendly and approached the group looking for some love and attention.

The group knew they had to do something. They started taking the right measures and actions to get the puppy the help she deserved.

The group decided to name the pup Lek Lek. The new addition to the gang decided to follow them on the stroll around some blocks before the group finally decides it’s time to reorient Lek Lek to her proper home.

One by one team members attempted to coax nearby pedestrians and city-goers to temporarily adopt Lek Lek as they had no choice but to try and give the doggo some care before they parted ways. Oddly enough, most people were hesitant when offered the furry friend due to the gender of the dog being female.

The group even asked their driver, Thushara, to kindly monitor the dog as they went around trying desperately to find a home for their new found buddy. With no luck, the group decided to take the dog that night and allowed her to sleep in the dormitory. It could have been Lek Lek’s first full rest in a very long time.

Using their bare minimum equipment and luggage, the team was able to provide a cleverly constructed makeshift bed and were able to keep Lek Lek warm with a few blankets they had brought with them. To everyone’s surprise, the pup fit just fine! Lek Lek looked incredibly serene and at peace with her noble rescuers who made sure this pup was well fed and taken care of.

After about three years of love, care, and attention, we can see how much Lek Lek has grown! She is looking much healthier and very stable in comparison to when she was first taken in. She brings an abundance of energy around her each day and fills her caretaker’s hearts with joy.

Fast forward three years later and the results are astounding! Lek Lek is looking incredibly fit and is even playing with her new friends both human and doggo alike. After three years of being apart, her original rescuers showed up to check on the brave dog’s status.

As soon as they were reunited, the pup immediately recognized who it was and began wagging its tail uncontrollably. Lek Lek was so responsive that she even allowed the returning rescuer to give her rubs on her tummy.
