Mikey Maiki, who lives in the city of Oruro, Bolivia, shared on his social networks the scene of a shoeshine boy cleaning the paws of a mutt.
The reason for such care was to make it tidy for the national holiday on August 6, when the country celebrates its liberation from Spanish rule.
In the video it is possible to see the boy sitting on the sidewalk of Castro de Padilla square with his paraphernalia. The little dog, named Kaiser, sat in front of him, extending his paw to shine it. Very cute!
Such was the boy’s affection for the furry one, that the scene caught the attention of passers-by who passed by the place and stopped to observe them.
Just as citizens were delighted with the scene, hundreds of comments from internet users praising the worker’s attitude.
“Concept of empathy and humanity for animals,” said one.
“Give love and affection to animals even if they are not yours,” commented another.
“It shows that love and respect for animals is not of social class, but of education!”, exclaimed a third.

How kind! It doesn’t take much to make someone else’s day happier! And to help a stray animal, it is enough to have willpower adopting it, or feeding it or contributing to some shelter so that they can do the work of collecting them and offering them a home.
