Meet Fernando. When Fernando was kayaking, he came upon a tiny island. He heard heartbreaking screams echo all around him. Then he saw a dog so emaciated and desperate that his cries pierced his soul. He knew if he didn’t act soon, the dog wouldn’t survive. Fernando made up his mind to save the dog by getting him on his boat. As he brought his kayak to shore, the dog ran towards him with joy in its eyes. The poor thing is skin and bones! In the video, Fernando explains how happy this dog looks.

The dog’s prayers had been answered when he saw someone, which gave him a sense of security. It was clear that the pup had previously been owned by people. His tail never stopped wagging. Someone must have intentionally abandoned him on this island, making it even more heartrending. The hero has to get him in the kayak now, but the dog is scared of water. Consider being stranded on a tiny island surrounded by water while being afraid to go near it!

But then the dog has the bravery to try. He ventures his paw onto the kayak, but he withdraws it as soon as it begins to move. Fernando understands that there is no alternative. To preserve his life, he will have to grab the dog and keep him on the kayak. It’s time to get the dog off of there safely! Fernando paddles for nearly two and a half miles. Once they reach land, they wait for the rescue team to arrive.

The veterinarian will take him to the clinic and ensure that his health is given immediate attention. He’s starved, suffering from mange, and malnourished. While they wait, it’s time to express your love for this brave dog. Jack receives a lot of pets and hugs. Fernando leaves after the dog has been taken care of safely. He swears he’ll be back – and he does! After five days, Jack, now known as Jack, is in foster care at his new home. The little guy is overjoyed to see Fernando again. His tail swings wildly and his doggy jumps tell you all you need to know about how happy he is.
