A Malnourished Pup In A Desperate Need Of Help Couldn’t Stop Hugging His New Rescuer

Stray canines live in hope that someone will finally smile at them, lend them a helping hand, and take them to a safe place.

It saddens me to know that many people ignore these homeless pups as if they were invisible and unworthy of help and love. 

Despite the long time they spend waiting, these stray canines never lose hope of being rescued.

They keep waiting for good humans who would show them kindness and compassion that they were deprived of for so long.

Nico is one of the stray dogs who knows how it feels to spend his days out in the cold, hoping to get the help he needs very much. Hungry and alone, he was looking in the distance with a sad expression on his beautiful face.

A Good Human The Pup Was Waiting For

Fortunately, Donna Lochmann, an experienced rescuer at Stray Rescue of St. Louis, a shelter in Missouri, came to his rescue. 

She felt heartbroken the moment she saw the pup sitting outside a family home with his sorrowful eyes fixed on the road. He was so skinny that all his ribs were showing.

The doggo’s face lit up as soon as Lochmann greeted him.

He instantly started wagging his little tail and walking towards her with his head bent. It seemed as if he knew right away that she was there to help him.

Lochmann noticed that his back paw was injured.

She cuddled the adorable dog and he melted in her arms. As she stroked him, he laid his head on her leg, feeling relieved that someone showed him some kindness and love. He waited for this moment for so long.

The pooch looked at Lochmann with his beautiful, soulful eyes filled with gratitude. She knew that she didn’t need to put a leash over his neck. 

The pup, later named Nico New Beginnings, couldn’t wait to go with her and leave his sad street life behind.

Lochmann carried him to her Jeep. The sweet canine was very excited and his tail never stopped wagging. 

She snuggled with him as he laid in the passenger’s seat. Nico felt safe at last and he was soaking up his rescuer’s love. He was ready for his freedom ride. 

Nico Gets The Love He Lacked All Along

As soon as Nico arrived at the shelter in St. Louis, he stole the hearts of all the shelter staff.

“He’s made all of us melt with those eyes that look into your soul,” the staff wrote on Facebook.

His shelter friends gave him a lot of love and cuddles. Nico was glad to be surrounded with loving humans. The lovely pooch felt comfortable and he knew that they would help him get better.

As soon as Nico is medically cleared, he will be ready to go to a foster home.

We look forward to seeing him gain weight and turn into a happy dog that enjoys life to the fullest. We have no doubt that Nico will soon steal the heart of his forever family who will love him infinitely. 

The delightful Missouri boi deserves all the happiness in the world.
