Man On Trip in Amazon Jungle Found Dog On Deserted Island and Saved Her

A man was on a trip to the Amazon River when he saw a helpless dog on a deserted island and rushes to save her without hesitation.

David Foster was on a river cruise when he first found the abandoned, starving dog on the island in the middle of the Amazon jungle. “When she came running down the beach all I could see was this skeletal form,” he said.

He instantly wanted and tried to save the helpless dog. However, that didn’t mean saving her was going to be easy.
