Ladislau Alcântara and Rosilene Jansen were out biking one day when they came across an animal in need.
Right there in the middle of the road sat a brown Dachshund with his ribs protruding through his skin. He just looked at them as if to ask for help.
Rosilene reached into her backpack and pulled out some bread for the hungry dog, and he ate it right up.
The couple then asked some locals about the pooch and found the place was popular as a dog dumping ground.
Ladislau unzipped his backpack and put the skinny dog inside to come along for the ride.
He was careful while pedaling and kept making sure the Dachshund was okay back there. He just knew he couldn’t leave him behind.
While on the ride home, Ladislau turned to Rosilene and said, “Since I have no children, I will have a dog.” 🙂
They named the dog Rotivi, and once they got home gave him a much-needed bath and meal.
The couple became more and more attached to the good boy the more time they spent with him!
Rotivi is now up to a healthy weight and goes along with his new parents on all of their adventures!
They didn’t know it at the time, but he was exactly what they needed in their lives. 🙂
