Recently, a photo of a dog using its front legs to push a wheelchair up a hill for its owner has gone viral on social media, garnering a lot of attention. Many people express admiration for this extraordinary act, while also being curious about the story behind this clever dog.
The dog uses 2 legs to push the car for the owner to cause emotion.
The owner of the dog is Mr. Ma, an old shoemaker living in Trienhe district, Luoyang city, Henan province, China. When he was young while working on a construction site, he unfortunately had an accident that left his hind legs permanently paralyzed.
He does not have a stable source of income and can only rely on street vendors to make a living. During the past 50 years, his life was lonely and poor without a partner and children by his side.
Five years ago, he discovered a thin, injured dog lying on a street corner. Mr. Ma decided to bring the dog home and save the little money he had saved to take him to a veterinarian for treatment.
A skinny, injured dog was treated by an old man.
Many times the poor old man tried to chase the dog away because he did not have enough money to raise another animal, but the dog refused to go.
Every day, Mr. Ma takes more than 1 hour to commute to work, although the distance is only 1km. Every time he saw the car about to roll on the road, the dog would run behind. In many bad roads, the dog put his front paws behind the owner’s back so that the old man could easily move.
Every day the dog followed the old man to work.
That image takes place every day on a small street, becoming a familiar sight to the people here. People often send food and clothes, and Mr. Ma will help them repair old shoes or clothes.
The dog that Mr. Ma raised is extremely intelligent and understanding. The dog that helps the owner look after the small stall even knows how to warm the owner’s feet when it gets cold.
When it was time to eat, he himself ran around looking for food. Because of knowing the old man’s situation, every time the dog ran over, the owner or whoever had leftovers would give it to the dog. The dog knows so much that when receiving the food, it will obediently eat it clean and then return to the owner, without affecting the business of the owner.
The intelligent and understanding dog made Mr. Ma forget all the loneliness and poverty.
The dog has now become an indispensable companion for Mr. Ma. Although sometimes poverty and hunger are still present, the two are still happy together every day.
