They say life has an unusual way of giving you the people (or animals) that you need in life. For example, if one person is feeling hopeless, they will run into someone who would give them hope. And when someone is in dire need of something and has no means of getting it, life will find a way for them to meet the person who would help them get what they need.
This next story is about how life found a way for a woman to meet a dog in the strangest possible way. And it all started with a stalled car.
A delightful surprise
When Lidiane Braga Carlos of Campo Largo, Brazil, went out of her house one day, she never expected she would meet a cutie. She just was on her way to run errands when her car suddenly stalled and would not start again. Thinking that there was something wrong with the engine, Lidiane immediately got out of the car and popped the hood.
Lidiane was expecting to find loose parts or drained liquids. She, however, got the biggest surprise of her life when a black-and-white faced dog popped its head up from inside the engine. Despite seeing that the dog was smiling at her, Lidiane immediately felt worried that the dog had been hurt.
A dog lover’s immediate reaction
As a dog lover, Lidiane’s immediate response to seeing the dog was to call the fire department. She wanted to ensure that the dog would be pulled out of the engine safely. Fortunately for her, a couple of passersby offered to help get the dog out of the engine.
The minute the dog was safely out of the vehicle, Lidiane took it to the vet to get checked. She felt relieved to learn that the dog had been unharmed. Lidiane’s next move was to look for the dog’s owner. She also brought the dog home so she and her family could take care of it until its owner was found.
It is still unclear how the dog ended up inside the hood of Lidiane’s car. But, one thing is for sure, the dog was very fortunate that it ended up inside the vehicle of a dog lover.
