A puppy named Tofu shows the world that hope should never be lost, because with his story he motivates us to always continue hoping for the best in life.
Sometimes we know of stories about people who have had to go through different trials in their lives but at the end of the day fate seems to reward them in one way or another, because these types of happy endings happen and not only in the lives of humans, but of different creatures and one of them is the good Tofu.
This 14-year-old blind puppy finally found happiness.Before being known as Tofu, the puppy was called Estabanado and lived in a shelter of the Animal Welfare Coordination of the municipality of Araraquara, in Sao Paulo (Brazil).
The dog arrived at the scene, after being rescued from the clutches of an abusive owner who hurt him mercilessly.Like any puppy that is given a second chance, the rescuers hoped to find a good family for the dog, but the matter was not so simple.
The panorama for this little friend did not paint in the best way, since most people prefer to adopt healthy puppies. But poor Tofu is a blind puppy and his years had also brought him other complications.
It was difficult to find someone who loved him despite his old age and his blindness.The caretakers at the shelter took a great liking to the puppy, although they always knew that it was imperative to find him a home. What they wanted most was to give him the opportunity to meet a real family, before he left this world.
Tofu deserved to know love like any other creature.
As if his condition were not difficult, a few years ago this dog underwent an operation in which one of his legs was amputated due to a tumor.
Each day that he spent in the shelter diminished the chances that the little dog Estabanado would leave the place alive.
It turned out that at the end of the day the puppy’s old age and painful history were the hook for someone to decide to open the doors of his heart.
According to Carolina Mattos Galvão, director of the shelter, one day he received a call: someone wanted to meet the oldest dog in the place.
And there was none older than Estabanado.That generous soul was dog trainer Danila Molinari, who at 39 was determined to give a doggy grandfather a chance.
What Danila did not expect was Estanado’s harrowing story.
As soon as she visited him, the woman was crushed and felt that it was the good dog who had come into her life to make one of her dreams come true.
“I always had a dream of adopting a disabled dog, an elderly dog and a deaf dog. When I asked him who was the oldest dog in the shelter, I did not imagine that he would also have a visual and physical disability, “said Danila.Once the adoption was finalized, the dog changed his name to Tufo and, together with his new family, this puppy is writing a new story.
“It was an indescribable feeling, something magical. He knew he wanted this, but he didn’t know it would be this good. He is very cute, he sleeps like an angel, he no longer collides with things. My family is happy, he is happy, it is gratifying to have him here,” said Danila.
For all those who believe that life ends when they reach old age, we must tell them that all is not lost. Nobody knows when true happiness will come, but in this particular case we are happy that it has finally arrived and in the least imagined way.
Danila’s decision is worthy of applause, because she gave herself the opportunity to love a being that others had never seen.
Tofu is now a dog full of love and this woman became her angel. Remember that older puppies also deserve to be happy, adopt them!
