“On my way home today I met a few of my friends and they told me that there is a small dog stranded on one of Nišava’s river islands [The Nišava is a river in Bulgaria and Serbia]. So we went there to try to help, but from our perspective there was little we could do without some gear and tools. We started calling various institutions and people but only Mr. Saša Pešić from “Dog shelter” (#savesashasdogs) came to the rescue.”
To most people, the dog probably looked more like a black garbage bag caught on the sticks of the river bed. It’s incredible these men not only realized it was a stranded dog, but also did something about it when no one else would.
Saša was able to cross the river, pick up the frightened dog, cross back over the river, hand the dog off to the guy waiting on the level above him, who then handed the dog up to the guy waiting at the roadside. In the end, the dog was so grateful to his heroes that his beautiful soul began to shine through.
This is just the kind of video that can restore your faith in humanity in a matter of minutes. There are good people out there, and they’re willing to put their lives on the line for others in need — even those with four legs :)
