Dogs really are man’s best friend. They are such loving, loyal companions, and their love can mean the world to people — especially those who have so little else like homeless people.
A man named Choco José Luis Matos has been living on the streets of Colombia for several years. According to the information we received, he ended up homeless after escaping from an ᴀʙᴜsɪᴠᴇ home.
The other day, a park-goer in Bucaramanga, Colombia, spotted a sweet scene playing out on some steps nearby. There, Choco and his dogs sat down together in the warm night air.
Choco was seen doing something unexpected and heartwarming for his dog: he threw him a birthday party. It was one recent act of love to his dogs that caught a bystander by surprise and brought his story to the world.
As the bystander looked on, Choco placed a party hat atop each of the pups’ heads. Soon, he revealed a cake and candles. And then Choco began to sing and brought out a cake with candles. And even though he had so little, Choco still decided to have a surprise party for his beloved pet, even singing for him.
The stranger recorded the sweet act, and the video soon went viral online. People were moved that this man would go out of his way to do something special for his dogs, even though he has so little.
After ending the video, the person filming approached Choco to learn his name and story, and to offer help to him and his dogs. But after the clip was posted online, many more people would follow suit.
People have been donating food and supplies to Choco and his pets, and he’s also become quite a local celebrity.
Turns out, Choco has spent the last several years living on the streets after escaping an abusive home. All the while, he’s seen to it that Shaggy and Nena never go without. And now strangers are doing the same for him.
