An estimated 730,000 stray dogs live on the streets of Thailand. Many of the dogs were abandoned by their owners when they couldn’t afford to keep them. Tragically, many are mistreated and are in a bad health. The video below is called “The First Hug,” and it features Sorasart Wisetsin, who had made it his mission to show the street dogs of Thailand love and compassion.
He also is working to raise awareness about being a responsible pet owner. Gluta is one of the two dog’s Wisetsin has rescued from the streets. As the name of the video suggests, one of the things Wisetsin does when he greets a street dog is to give them a hug. You know how powerful a hug it – now watch and see how these lonely dogs feel about getting a hug! Grab a tissue the grateful dog at 1:59 will have you in tears!
