On a daily basis, countless stray dogs roam the streets in search of food and shelter. Among them is Jhonny, a homeless dog who spends his days hoping for compassionate individuals to show him some affection and provide him with a meal.
Initially, Jhonny used to rely on the staff at La Espiga bakery for his daily sustenance, and they always came through for him. But now, the bakery has closed down, leaving Jhonny outside, anxiously waiting for someone to come out and offer him a scrap of food, just like in the past.
It’s heartbreaking to know that a lot of dogs are left to fend for themselves on the streets and are exposed to illness, abuse, and starvation. Fortunately, there are people who are always willing to help. With Jhonny’s story, we hope that more people will be inspired to adopt or provide food for these stray pups.
Amandi Rodriguez Maya recently shared a story on a Facebook group called “Perdidos Perdidos de Tampico Madero y Altamira.” She narrated that a dog, who seems to have no owner, was seen waiting outside a bakery that had ceased operation. Unfortunately, nobody gave him food as they used to do before.
This unfortunate dog spent the entire day waiting outside the bakery, hoping someone would feed him. Sadly, with the closure of the “La Espiga” bakery branch in Tampico’s center since mid-December 2022, it won’t happen anytime soon. This incident highlights the dire situation that many homeless dogs face in our communities.
Introducing Jhonny, the charming dog frequently found dozing outside the Cuidado con el Perro store located in the marketplace. Jhonny’s favorite spot, however, is situated outside the bakery “La Espiga,” where he knows he will always be gifted a scrumptious taco, regardless of the weather. Unfortunately, the bakery has shut down, but Jhonny continues to loiter outside, hoping for his regular food supply. It is quite disheartening to witness this affectionate pooch appearing dejected. The purpose of this write-up is to request people who encounter Jhonny to offer him some nourishment. Many readers have been touched by his story and sympathize with his unfortunate situation. So, if you happen to cross paths with Jhonny, please extend an invitation to him to share your meal. Jhonny adores little packets of croquettes, and occasionally, chicken is among his favorites. However, please refrain from giving him bones as they can cause harm to him, as mentioned in the article.
