Once upon a time, there was a little puppy who had lost his way. He was both unclean and famished, having gone days without food or water. He wandered the streets, searching for something to eat, but no one seemed to take notice of him.
One day, he stumbled upon a group of people who were gathered outside a house. They were all staring at him with disapproving looks on their faces. One of them approached the puppy and told him that he was considered to be without value and was not welcome there.
The puppy lowered his head in embarrassment and shame. He had never felt so worthless in his entire life. He didn’t know what he had done wrong, but he knew that he was not wanted. He turned around and began to walk away, his tail between his legs.
As he wandered the streets, he came across a kind-hearted woman who saw the puppy’s condition and took him in. She gave him a warm bath and a good meal, and the puppy felt like he was finally home. He no longer felt ashamed of his uncleanliness, and he was no longer famished.
Days turned into weeks, and the puppy grew stronger and happier with each passing day. He ran and played in the backyard, and the woman showered him with love and affection. The puppy had never felt so loved and cared for in his entire life.
One day, the woman received a phone call from someone who had lost their dog. They described the dog as being small and unclean, and the woman knew immediately that they were talking about her little puppy. She realized that the puppy had once belonged to someone else, and they must have abandoned him when he was no longer wanted.
The woman made the difficult decision to return the puppy to his original owner, knowing that it was the right thing to do. She said goodbye to the puppy, knowing that she had given him a second chance at life.
As the puppy was taken away, he once again lowered his head in shame and embarrassment. He didn’t want to leave the woman who had shown him so much love and care. But he knew that he had to go, and so he turned and walked away.
The puppy never forgot the woman who had saved him, and he always held a special place in his heart for her. He went on to live a happy life with his original owner, but he never forgot the kindness that had been shown to him when he was unclean and famished.
