And that’s exactly what happened to this cyclist when he came upon an abandoned puppy lying in a box by the side of the road.

After just a few moments with this extremely friendly dog, he simply couldn’t leave it behind, so he tucked it into his shirt and made the long trek back home. Below is the full video of their fateful encounter:

This cheerful pup is now up for adoption, so if you’re interested, go for it! Get in touch with the cyclist by emailing him at
