The temperature went up to about 114 degrees on the day Esteban had met them for the first time. He knew he had to do something to get them out of the situation. However, the first step was to befriend these dogs.
He decided to give them food and water and tried to become friendly with the dogs. However, he also wanted to understand the whole situation about how so many dogs ended up in the desert.
One of the locals told him that an old man had decided to create a dog sanctuary in the middle of the desert but had died before his plan came into action. Thus, the dogs were left in the desert without anyone to take care of them.
