A family rescued a homeless dog that had become caught in the middle of a flooded roadway in a Brazilian city about a month ago. The dog became entangled on a light post full with branches.
The dog was apparently pulled here by the stream of the flooded streets, and in order to escape being dragged, he clung to the fallen branches. At the time, a couple living across the street noticed the dog and went out of their way to aid him.
The man approached the puppy caught in the river and, after catching him in his arms, carried him and took him home to keep him warm and fed.
The puppy appeared to be quite afraid after he arrived at home, and he was soaking and trembling with cold, but he would soon receive proper treatment. They bathed him in warm water with soap, dried him well, and gave him a plate of food and some toys.
Because the puppy was overjoyed to be rescued, they nicknamed him “Sorriso Trovo da Silva,” because he couldn’t stop smiling at his rescuers.
The couple decided to post the video of the terrible rescue incident on TikTok, and it quickly went viral as a result of their kindness.
The video’s description reads:
“One of the best values of human nature is compassion towards animals.”
People reacted quickly to the video, thanking the pair for rescue this cute stray puppy.

To everyone’s amazement, the video received over 1 million views, over 300,000 likes, and over 12,000 comments. The couple decided to publish another video demonstrating the dog’s improvement after being rescued after seeing the scope of the first.
People from all around the world watched the video and were affected when they realized that the couple planned to adopt the dog.

Despite the fact that Sorriso seems to be an older dog, he is adjusting well to his new home and demonstrating how content he is with his family. And the best part is that he is constantly smiling; no matter what he is doing, he always smiles, indicating that he is thankful.
Sorriso was able to change his life and gain a house thanks to the couple’s generous attitude.
