There are stray dogs all over the world, and there are many people and organizations hard at work to remedy this sad reality. Unfortunately, this number of homeless dogs far exceeds the help out there, and most of these strays are left to fend for themselves for the time being.
In Criciúma, Brazil, one particular stray took refuge in a local nativity scene in order to stay warm during the cold winter nights. It was a very symbolic scene to the women who stumbled upon the pup who was curled up right next to the baby Jesus figurine.
It’s a good reminder that we should show love and compassion to all living things, not only around the holidays but year round. With another Christmas just around the corner, we hope this stray pup has found a much more permanent and proper roof over his head.
