Living in a busy city can take a toll on anyone’s mind. Getting stuck in traffic and having to wait in long lines every time you want to buy something can be really annoying. This is why taking a holiday break and visiting some exotic places is always a great idea. At least this is what David Foster believed he would do when he took a boat cruise on the Amazon River. Little did he knew, he would be coming back with a new best friend that he found during one of his trips.
There’s something relaxing about being on a boat surrounded by blue water. This is why David Foster decided that he wants to head on to the Amazon River and explore virgin islands. However, he was about to experience the adventure of a lifetime, he just didn’t know it yet.
The coolest part about going on boat cruises is getting to explore virgin islands. No one lives on them and you can sit back, relax and enjoy the warm weather. Another great thing about these islands is that you can encounter wildlife.
Everyone who has ever visited the Amazon River on a boat cruise will tell you that the most exciting part about it is exploring the unknown. On the other hand, this also means that you never know what you might stumble upon… something which David Foster learned firsthand.
An Amazing Experience
This man was in for an amazing experience during his exploration of the Virgin Islands. His decision truly restored everyone’s faith in humanity. What started as a trip to see the beautiful untouched islands, ended up with rescuing an animal!
Amazon River Cruise
David Foster was having the time of his life on the Amazon River cruise. He was taking pictures left and right because he was amazed by the beautiful sights that this place has to offer, just like in the next photo!
As David Foster was being left in awe by the beauty of the Amazon River cruise, he spotted something strange moving in the distance. What could it be? Was it an animal or just something the wind moved?
David reached a beach and started taking some photographs of the place. He was trying to capture the beauty of the island and of the Amazon River spreading all over the horizon. But as he tried to snap another photo, he saw something moving…
The man saw a strange animal running on the island. No one can blame David Foster for thinking that it was a beast at first, because you are never going to guess what type of animal was running around on a virgin island!
The creature had black fur and four legs, but what could it be? It looked too large to be any kind of wild cat or wild animal.
You will not believe what this creature really is! David was shocked to see it so close…
What Is That?
Taking a closer look, David realized that he was looking at a creature that was running on the beach. It was quite far away, but he could notice it getting closer and closer. What kind of animals lived on this island?
To David’s surprise, the strange animal was a black dog. The sad thing about this is that the dog was really skinny. The island didn’t offer too much food and the dog was starving. What do you think the man did about it?
David Foster was overwhelmed with sadness when he saw the skinny dog and he instantly knew what he needed to do. He was determined to help the dog and he called him up on the boat. Isn’t this amazing?
He realized it was a female dog and she was quite friendly. He said in an interview with the Dodo that “she came running towards me. And that’s when I noticed how bad off she was.”
That moment would be the beginning of an amazing recovery and friendship!
David decided right then he’ll never leave the dog alone again. Just look at how comfortable the animal seems to be in his arms. Dogs can sense when a person has a good heart. You won’t believe what happened next…
The boat where David Foster was on didn’t have any food, but the man had some biscuits in his backpack and he started feeding them to the dog. The pooch was afraid to take them at first, but she soon started trusting the man and began eating.
After drinking clean water and eating some delicious biscuits, the dog had a huge smile on her face. It’s like she knew that David Foster was going to rescue her from being stranded on a deserted island. The next picture is even more amazing!
A New Life
David not only gave his new friend a new chance at life, but be also adopted her. He named her Negrita and in return, she followed him everywhere around the boat with her tail wagging like crazy. But her journey was just beginning…
Just look at that big smile! David knew that he and the dog are going to have some great time together after he saw her smiling face. Although, the dog wasn’t the only one smiling all throughout these pictures…
Happy To Help
The people who worked on the boat were happy to see that David Foster was doing his best to help the little doggy and this brought a smile to their faces as well. Nonetheless, the story gets even better from here on.
The Journey Begins
David Foster saved the black dog and he started taking care of her poor health right away. However, the story is just beginning and you have even more incredible pictures to see. Wait until you see her shining with glee in her new home!
The dog spent a couple of days with David and she was already feeling better. Eating healthy food filled the dog with energy and the man knew that he could go and explore even more islands, but now, he had a partner.
The dog was healthier than ever and she accompanied David Foster everywhere he went. This is quite amazing since most dogs are afraid to go on boats, but not this one! David Foster says that he couldn’t have asked for a better travel companion.
David Foster wanted to make sure that his new best friend was healthy and he spent some money on a special shampoo that helped the dog get rid of all his flee problems. The next picture will bring a smile to your face!
Happiest Ride Home
The trip was coming to an end and David Foster decided that he was going to adopt this happy dog. This picture shows us what the happiest ride home looks like! You won’t believe how the dog’s entire appearance changes when he arrives at David’s home.
A Trip To The Vet
The first thing that David Foster did when he got home was to take his new best friend to the vet. The vet told David Foster that the dog is in perfect health and that the only thing he needs to do is to eat more.
A Changed Dog
This is how the dog looks after living for a couple of months with David. Isn’t it unbelievable how much a little bit of love and some good food can make a dog’s life so much better?
