For a street child, loneliness and helplessness are some of the hardest things to bear. Not to mention the anguish of uncertain destiny, not even knowing if that day he will be able to put something in his mouth. But if a faithful friend appears on that difficult path, everything changes color…
A pet is the living example of pure love, offering you something wonderful every day without expecting anything in return. When you have a pet, they teach you to love without conditions, you learn the value of loyalty, commitment and reciprocity.
A little street boy was left to his own, but he has the love of a faithful little dog
Maria Kabs is a citizen of Manila, Philippines, who through his social network shared photos and videos of a little boy and his cute pet, making his moving story viral.
The boy is called Rommel Quemenales, with only 11 years old he lives on the streets of Quezon City, in the Philippines, and his story has been completely moved on social networks.
The little Filipino boy adopted his puppy three years ago, which he named Badgi.
The boy found the little dog on the street and so that neither of them continues in their solitude, he decided to adopt him.
His parents separated when he was very young, he was abandoned and without any financial help. He has an older sister who lives in a nearby city, Rommel always visits her when he can. He has received unfair treatment on several occasions, either by children or even by the police themselves, stealing the few coins he manages to collect.
“I only ask for coins, I don’t steal anything,” says Rommel.
