Tomy lives in Peru with his owner who is a street vendor. A demanding and often exhausting job. By seeing his human working all day long, he started a little ritual that touched everyone: this dog carries a chair and brings it to his owner every day so he can sit and breathe.
True dog’s love
Tomy is so attentive to the needs of his owner, he was filmed by a local Tv show called “La llamada”. That’s how he became a little star and his story spread around the world.
This January, Laura Forma was driving her car when she saw, through her rearview mirror, a stray dog crossing the street behind her.
Already taking care of 8 dogs at home, Laura Forma did not hesitate to collect another stray dog. The latter wandered in the rain and cold. He needed a lot of help.
She lives in Houston, Texas, Laura Forma used to help stray dogs. She already had 8 at home: 6 adopted and 2 received on a temporary basis until they find an adoptive family.
Despite this, she did not ask herself a question. She turned around, but she did not find him right away. Laura Forma had to wait for a while before seeing it reappear. She called him and the Pitbull came to meet her without hesitation. She then invited him to board her vehicle.
The brave dog, very friendly, jumped into the passenger seat. He was delighted to find shelter, as rain and cold fell on the region. Above all, he seemed happy that someone finally gave him some attention.
she calls him Thor, he was wearing a green collar. However, he had no tattoo or medallion to identify him.
For Laura Forma, there was no way to entrust the dog to a shelter in Houston because the city has a large number of stray dogs and already saturated institutions. Being a Pitbull, Thor would have had little chance of being adopted.
So she took him home until she finds a solution. At home, Thor confirmed his first impressions; this extremely nice dog was particularly discreet and obedient. Laura prepared a cozy bed on which he immediately landed, without making waves. At no time did he try to chew objects or anything.
When he was introduced to the 8 other dogs, he remained very calm. It was clear that he lived with a family and had received an education before.
Although she was fond of him as the days went by, Laura Forma knew she could not keep it. So she contacted the Three Little Pitties Association, which has a mission to find foster families or adoption for dogs.
Today, Laura Forma is very happy to have stopped that day to get this brave doggie. She knows that he will eventually be adopted and that he will fill his future family with happiness.

Russia is planning a mass slaughter of stray dogs before the World Cup
So we can kill living creatures in the name of the game. We can kill thousands of stray animals to let people run after balloons in peace. This is what Russia is teaching us.
The country launched, for the second time, a campaign to exterminate stray dogs and cats.
At 2014 Sochi, stray dogs were killed with poisonous darts
that killed them after a slow and painful agony.
Despite the polemic that this action had aroused around the world, it is clear that this cruel act is just repeated.
Officially, the Russian government has requested the creation of temporary shelters for stray animals.
Sports minister wants to avoid any measures of negative media coverage and be related to cruelty to animals”.
But animal defenders are not fooled. In fact, the massacre has already begun. captured dogs are immediately killed.
But why kill stray animals?
If Russia exterminates stray animals, it would be a question of image: a crowded city of stray dogs seems dirty and poor. The Bloody Fifa 2018 community’s page also explains: “Local authorities and technical services in cities […] are convinced that these animals will upset sportsmen and fans, that these animals are undermining the ‘tourist attractiveness’ of cities”.
If a stray dog bites a supporter, he could “file a complaint against FIFA and seek compensation,” they said.
In fact, the fear of the bite is a pretext that hides a much deeper problem, the misappropriation of public money.
Animal Rights Defenders
According to Ekaterina Dmitrieva, director of City Animal Protection Foundation, the slaughter of stray dogs and cats would cost more than 100 million rubles (1.4 million euros) to the regions hosting the World Cup.
“With this money, we could fund the sterilization of dogs, their vaccination, and their housing, but they prefer to kill,” she said.
To kill, for pleasure, and for-profit, would, in fact, be the real reason for these massive murders. Thus, the city of St.Petersburg would commission “dog hunters” who would receive bonuses depending on the number of animals killed. According to Ekaterina Dmitrieva,
“It would not have taken more than 5 or 6 years to solve the problem of stray animals all over the country, but it does not serve their interests.
They need new puppies to continue the killings, for which they receive public money. In addition, domestic dogs are also victims, caught to make the figure and touch the premiums.
Fifa has been alerted to this wave of extermination. But the message the animal advocates have received is disappointing. “We have received a lot of letters, but we have so much to do that we take note of it without being able to help you, Sorry”.
In response, calls for boycotts and a petition were launched.
The goal is to ensure that the World Cup does not take place in Russia, but in a country where animals have rights, or at least the right to live“.
