Leo the dog has been melting hearts all over the world with his overwhelming loyalty toward his owners. The poor dog was apparently left behind at a gas station intersection in Khon Kaen, Thailand. He has been patiently waiting for his owners at the intersection for the past 4 years.
A 45-year-old local woman named Saowalak noticed Leo’s habitual waiting. By that time, Leo was thin and weak with sores all over his body. Saowalak started bringing him food and water every day. She even took him home a couple of times, but Leo would always escape and return to his waiting spot.
Saowalak’s heart hurts at Leo’s hopeless plight, and she can do nothing but feed him every day. Let’s do our part and share the story of Leo’s unwavering loyalty so that this optimistic boy finds his family soon. Spread the word.
Update: Thanks to the magic of social media, Leo’s owners have been found! Leo, who is actually named BonBon, is the missing dog of 64-year-old Nang Noi Sittisarn and her husband. They lost BonBon when they were driving back home after visiting their daughter, and had no clue where he was or if he was safe. Nang Noi broke down in tears when she finally reunited with BonBon.
But in a surprising twist, BobBon refused to follow Nang Noi home! As it turns out, BonBon had grown too fond of Saowalak, his caretaker for the past 4 years, and didn’t want to leave her. Saowalak gladly agreed to adopt him and Nang Noi also decided to honor BonBon’s choice. This story sure took us on a roller-coaster ride of emotions!
