Thousands of netizens are sharing a photo of a loyal dog at Rama V pier who is often seen by locals looking out over the river as if she’s waiting for her owner to pick her up.
The story hit local headlines after Facebook user Thanawan Thongporn posted the photo last night, hoping this would get the dog a home.
Commuters have fallen in love with the female dog, who has reportedly been waiting at the same spot for almost a month after she fell off a boat she lived in.
“‘I’m lonely.’ She’s waiting for her owner. She fell off a boat and has been living at Rama V pier for almost a month. She’s very smart and cute. People feed her every morning and after she finishes eating, she always comes back to sit at this spot like this… as if she’s looking for the boat she used to live in,” Thanawan wrote.
“I feel sorry for the dog. Someone, please adopt her. I would have done it if my home had a space for another dog. Or I hope she reunites with her owner soon. Everytime I see her like this, I tear up.”
Netizens have been comparing the pier dog with photos of missing dogs posted on the internet.
Thanawan posted an update in the comment section just now saying that someone has now offered to adopt the dog.
