A man named Jahniel Reyes was hiking in the mountains near his home in the Philippines. He wasn’t expecting anything unusual during his hike, but he noticed something moving on the river banks while crossing a bridge. When Jahniel took a closer look, he was surprised that it was an injured puppy.
The puppy was weak and tried to climb the river bank to safety. Unfortunately, the puppy was injured on her hind legs. Jahniel didn’t even have to think twice and decided to pick up the puppy and bring her back to the nearby village.
After briefly asking around, Jahniel found out that the puppy once belonged to a man who was abusive towards the pup. He was told that the puppy’s former owner often physically abused the puppy. Jahniel assumed that the man must have abandoned the puppy in the mountains by leaving it near the river to die.
Jahniel knew that the puppy wouldn’t survive without any help. He decided to care for her and named her River. He took her back home with him, where he bathed her, fed her, and did everything to help her recover. River was in a horrible situation. Just seeing how weak and frightened she was broke Jahniel’s heart.
As weeks went by, Jahniel and River developed a strong bond. Jahniel decided to adopt River and care for her. After a few weeks in Jahniel’s care, River’s health improved. She started recovering and was regaining her ability to walk. Eventually, River miraculously started walking properly again.
Even more heartwarming was the happiness that River showed when she started running. She was always following Jahniel around like a shadow. Seeing River recover was the proudest moment in Jahniel’s life. He would take her on adventures and let her experience what life had to offer.
Jahniel thought that it was fate that he met River. He explained that the day when he met River was a day of miracle. He believed that it was God’s perfect timing. Regardless of how they met, Jahniel is grateful that he met his best friend on that fateful day. Here’s a video showing how Jahniel met River and how he helped her recover from her terrible ordeal.
