Generous store clerk fosters homeless dog amidst crippling heat wave

After an immensely hot day in northern Mexico, one man by the name of Adolfo Pazzi Ahumada saw what love looked life up close while on a grocery run.

Ahumada noticed he was out of milk at home and decided to make a pit stop at his local market despite it being 104°F weather.

And when he arrived, the unexpected scene he found was very sweet.

“A stray dog was being fed and getting water from the [store] clerk,” Ahumada shared with The Dodo. “Then I saw they let the dog inside.”

After Ahumada entered the store, the clerk shared with him the tale of how the pup came to take up residence in the space.

“He has been here the past [few] days. We suspect he was left behind by his owner. He came to us for help,” the clerk shared with Ahumada. “We could only provide him with food, water and some toys from the store that we paid with our money.”

The clerk continued on, sharing how that was not all they gifted the dog.

“We let him inside because the temperature outside is really hell-like. We feel bad for him, but he looks happier around the store,” the clerk said.

When looking down one of the aisles, Ahumada saw for himself the struggling dog who made a way into many’s hearts.

The dog has shown a lot of love to both the clerks as well as the customer, something the employees hope a shopper will see and adopt him into their home.

And while Ahumada could not be that person, he did purchase his milk and a treat for the pup to enjoy after his rest.

“I felt bad for what the dog has passed through,” Ahumada said. “But he is now receiving the love he deserves.”
