Valentine’s Day is here and people across the globe are celebrating this day with gusto. While some are expressing their love to the special ones, others are celebrating the day by participating in varied events. This day, however, is not just for the significant other. It’s also a day which celebrates the love we see all around. In today’s edition of different-tales-of-love, we have the story of a man and his love for a rescue dog. Don’t blame us if the story leaves you teary-eyed with happiness.

Shared on the Humans of Bombay Facebook and Instagram pages, the story details how a man brought home a rescue dog and it changed their lives – for better.

“One evening, my friends and I were walking the neighborhood dogs when they pounced on this little puppy. Scared, the pup jumped inside the garden fence and came out only after I intervened,” says the man. Then he revealed that he couldn’t believe how small the animal was but what mesmerized him was “her skin having all the possible colors a dog can have.” “Her big brown eyes overpowered her little face - she was lost and scared,” he added.

With no information about the dog’s owner, he decided to take her home. He also gave the details to a nearby vendor, in case someone comes looking for her. When after ten days no one came looking for her, he decided to adopt her.

He then detailed how for first four days the pooch whimpered and barked all night. He also shared how they made her a cozy bed out of old sheets but she kept on sleeping next to his pillow. “I’d pet her and she’d put her paws on my little finger to feel safe,” he recalled. Eventually, his mom named her angel and she became a part of his life, forever.

The rest of the post goes on explaining how Angel changed their lives. From the whole family going to vet with her to decorating the entire house on Angel’s birthday, their lives – happily – now revolves around the four-legged wonder.

“Whether it’s birthdays, trips or just going for a walk, everyone’s life revolves around her. And we’re more than okay with it too - no complaints. She’s the boss of the house; not to mention, the glue that holds the family together!” he further added.

Here’s the entire Facebook post:
