In Mexico, Said Zárate works as a garbage collector, a demanding profession with little attention, but that has just changed. Said’s bravery earned him acclaim and the greatest gratitude from a puppy caught in a canal, which he rescued without hesitation.
While driving his vehicle in an agricultural region not long ago, he came across a spectacle that immediately captivated him: a dog urgently trying to get out of a concrete canal.
According to Said, who spoke to The Dodo,
«I noticed something moving in the water and kept watching until I recognized it as a dog. I instructed my companion to come to a halt.
The man moved swiftly, picking up an empty bag with which the dog might assist in getting out of the canal. The dog was quite weak from its struggle to remain afloat, but Said was undeterred and persevered until he was able to pull the dog out of the water.
The man was able to pull the dog out of the water and save his life, and the animal expressed his gratitude in the most wonderful way.
“He flung himself into my arms.”
The dog appeared to belong to a nearby ranch, and he was healthy and happy. Said assumed it was an accident, but the dog appeared to have a decent home.
“After a brief visit with us, he cheerfully returned home.”
Said received another unexpected thank you when the footage of the imprisoned dog’s rescue went viral; the dog’s father was among those who viewed the video and did not hesitate to write a note to the heroic guy who rescued his pet.
