Stray dogs and other homeless animals are becoming increasingly common on the streets of Kraljevo, Serbia.
Goran Marinkovic loves animals and feeds over 100 stray dogs and cats using his own money. The seasoned animal rescuer felt he’d seen it all until he came across a little puppy named Smesten.
“I rescue endangered animals that live on the streets.” “I take care of animals because I love them; I love all animals equally, cats, dogs, and others,” Goran explained. “I feed abandoned animals on the street who do not receive food from humans and do not have owners.” Their numbers are steadily increasing.”
He was feeding a swarm of stray dogs one day when he noticed Smesten laying in a heap of rubbish. The puppy appeared emaciated and ill, and there was no sign of its mother. Unfortunately, the child had been using an abandoned shoe as a makeshift refuge from the weather.
When he witnessed the puppy’s filth, the animal lover’s heart sank. Goran began by feeding the infant, but he realized he couldn’t leave him alone in his frail state.
Instead, Goran picked him up and carried him home, pausing briefly at the vet’s office for medication before beginning to nurse the puppy back to health.
Goran fed and cared for the puppy for the following eight months, until Smesten began to flourish. His fur became silky and clean, and he became content and well-adjusted. Not to add that he adores Goran — his idol!
Goran already has numerous dogs and cats at home and had intended to place Smesten for adoption once he was ready. However, when the puppy grew in size, Goran realized he wouldn’t be able to let him go.
He adopted Smesten in November, and neither of them is happy with the arrangement. Take a peek at Smesten right now!
Who doesn’t love a good transformation? Smesten appears to be a completely different dog. What’s the difference between a glow-up and a glow-pup?
