Every day this stray dog offers a leaf to local woman in trade for food (VIDEO)

Every day, a smart stray dog in Krabi carries a leaf in his mouth to bring to a woman who feeds him as if he’s making a trade with her.

The sweet video of Tua Plu the dog, whose name translates to “winged bean,” making his daily exchange has spread across the web and melted netizens’ hearts as the poster calls for an adoption of the sweet canine.

“When he’s hungry, he will offer something to get fed. Every day he shows up with an object in his mouth — usually a leaf and sometimes a piece of paper. Before you feed other dogs, you have to feed Tua Plu and his mom,” wrote Facebook user Orawan Kaewla-iat, who posted the video.

What a good boy!

Orawan, who lives at the housing for the City Police, said that she’s worried no one will feed Tua Plu because she will be moving out of the residence soon. As a result, a few people have come forward and offered to adopt the dog.
