Man Saved An Abandoned Pup That He Found Living In A Shoe


Life is often unfair to little critters. There are many cases of abandoned puppies, cats, and other animals. It’s very sad to see how careless and heartless people can be. Leaving their pets on the side of the road, tied to a tree, and sometimes even worse… That’s why it’s very refreshing to see a happy story with a great ending.

A man called Goran Marinkovic feeds and takes care of stray animals. In March of 2020, when he went to visit them, he found a little surprise: an abandoned puppy sleeping next to a shoe. Goran noticed that the pup was ill and hungry. The man took the little pup into his home, named him Smesten, and helped him recover into a beautiful, healthy, and happy dog.

Goran Marinkovic found this little pup while feeding stray dogs

He was thrown away like garbage, surrounded by trash and looked very ill

He slept next to a shoe, which the pup used as a shelter to hide from the elements

There was no sign of a mother or any dog that could take care of him. The pup was all alone

The puppy was very skinny. It was obvious he hadn’t been eating and drinking very well

Goran took the pup, fed him and brought him to the vets

After the pupper was brought home by Goran, he started feeling and looking much better, thanks to all the love, food and care he got

Goran named the pup Smesten and adopted him

Smesten is very playful and energetic, but also loves napping very much

Smesten has a lot of brothers and sisters he can play with, even though he’s much smaller than them

After six months, Smesten is unrecognizable

He grew up to be a beautiful, friendly, and loving dog—full of energy, very healthy, and ready for adventures
