Homeless Dog Found On Beach Turns Out To Have A Crucial Mission Thousands Of Miles Away

As an animal lover, Valia Orfanidou of Athens, Greece, was always sure to bring her beloved dogs along on her vacations. In her mind, taking them for walks presented the perfect opportunity to get out and explore any given locale on foot. And that’s exactly what she was doing in a small seaside Greek town when she made a startling discovery.

There, right by the beautiful beach, was a homeless dog. Upon initial inspection, the pup appeared to be in good health, but Valia couldn’t help shake the feeling that she needed her help. That was when the dog proved she had a magical ability…

Whenever Valia Orfanidou took a vacation, she always brought her beloved dogs along for the ride. According to the Athens, Greece, native, walking them around town gave her an excuse to see and experience places she wouldn’t ordinarily think about.

And that was what she was doing while visiting a small seaside town when she decided to take a stroll along the beach with her pups. Almost immediately, she spied something that concerned her…

A homeless dog was lying on the beach. Although she appeared in decent health, Valia couldn’t shake the feeling that the vulnerable stray needed her help. So she decided it was up to her to do something.

“When you are an animal lover living in Greece, you simply get used to lonely stray dogs wandering around everywhere,” explained Valia. “[You] choose to rescue the ones that can’t make it on the streets: the sick, emaciated or hurt ones, the newborns and the pregnant females.”

Even though this particular dog didn’t necessarily fall into any of those categories, Valia still felt a sudden sense of urgency when she looked at her.”I panicked,” she admitted. “There was something about her that made her life as a stray extremely vulnerable.”

Valia noted that, while many strays can be aggressive to strangers on the street, this dog was different. She seemed willing to accept all sorts of love and affection. If only Valia knew this dog was about to surprise the hopeful rescuer even more…

Suddenly, the stray made a gesture to Valia that proved her innate kind nature: she rolled over onto her back and allowed Valia to rub her belly! It was clear from that moment that the poor animal only needed some attention.
