Peso was being “raised” in El Nido, Philippines, by some heartless owners. He was kept tied up with a 4-foot rope to a lamppost near a construction site surrounded by broken glass and sharp metal scrap.
But when UK tourists Chloe Henley and Alex Jewkes discovered the two-month-old puppy being neglected in this way, they approached the owner about taking the pup from them. They were disgusted to find out the puppy had only been getting fed one snail per day.
After some back-and-forth, the owner agreed to hand Peso over to them. Their first order of business was to get the puppy to the vet for a checkup and care. They raised funds for his care and transportation to England, and it was there in his new life that he saw grass for the very first time. Take a look at him going absolutely wild taking it all in!
Thanks to this couple for giving Peso the life he’d always deserved.
