A strong friendship has developed between an abandoned boy and a stray dog.
A faithful dog can change the world for its owner.
In recent weeks, a photo of a homeless boy sleeping on the street and hugging his dog has gone viral on the Internet. And now the boy’s identity is known. Meet Rommel, an 11-year-old boy.
He was abandoned by his mother and father after their divorce.
A month ago, he met his dog Budgie. And surprisingly, the dog was always with him. He did not leave him for a second, staying by his side under any circumstances.
Since the age of 10, wandering the streets of Quezon City, Philippines, he dreams that someone will change his and the dog’s life. He lives on the coins he collects by begging.
Rommel’s story is truly heartbreaking. But he is amused by Budgie, who likes to play with him. He protects him and follows him everywhere.
Rommel is growing day by day, and so are his dreams. All he wants is to go to school and study. He is trying to save money to fulfill his dream. He wants to be an actor when he grows up.
The power of social media changed Rommel’s life. Since the video was posted, many people have decided to help the little boy and his beloved dog.
The good news is that Rommel is now in school. Many charities are trying to find him a safe place to live.
Dogs are friends and family. A small dog can save a wounded soul.
