Dog From The Amazon Adopted By Irishman
The dog was alone on a tropical island and in rough shape. She was starved, full of ticks, had a sliced ear, and vultures were following her around. It’s unlikely she would have survived much longer. Her health was terrible and the island she was on would disappear with the seasonal rise of the Amazon River. It was hours away by boat to the nearest human settlement and the island offered little to sustain her.
She was rescued by an Irish tourist named David Foster who was on a tour that stopped at that island for lunch. When the dog came running to the people on the boat, they didn’t immediately recognize her as a dog because she was so emaciated. Her eager approach suggests that she was desperately happy to see people, perhaps recognizing that a stroke of luck had come her way.
