A dog’s love may be the greatest in the world. It can make life so much better, even for people who have nothing else.
And a loyal dog can catch you when you’re at the minimum. This is what the heartwarming video shows, as a struggling street musician turns to his best friend for some love.
Anderson Hidalgo, Venezuela, is a rapper and musician who calls himself Rebel. Like many young musicians early in their careers, Anderson was cash-strapped and relied on buskers, performing for strangers in public in hopes of earning tips.
Anderson recently had a captive audience: he gave free shows for foreigners stuck at traffic lights in Colombia. However, he was disappointed when the cars passed without any acknowledgment.
But he was soon embraced by his biggest fan. After his appearance, his loyal dog Mayte was there waiting for him, wagging his tail.
Anderson, clearly in need of help, hugs his loyal dog.
The entire moving scene was videotaped by Wara Ricoo, who was watching from his home upstairs. The sight moved him and he decided to go downstairs and find out more.
“For me it was a moment of love and loyalty,” Wara Ricoo told The Dodo. “So much so that I went down to talk to him.”
Wara heard Anderson’s story and was moved by how he continued to care for his dogs, Mayte and Negrita, even as he struggled to make money. Wara decides to help the stranger. He took Anderson and the two dogs to the vet, and luckily they were both found to be in good health, according to The Dodo.
He additionally shared his tale on social media, hoping that the viral reputation might assist Anderson`s song career. Anderson began out a brand new Instagram page, that now has over 14,000 fans way to the tale.
And the plan worked: According to Infobae, Anderson signed a professional recording contract with Music Global Entertainment (MGE).
MGE manager Cristian Rodríguez said the video “touched our hearts and … we decided to give him the support he needed”.
Wara is very happy to see his new friend’s life change so quickly and believes that he has a bright future.
“I trust that the whole lot will alternate for the better,” he instructed The Dodo. “No remember what existence hits you with, preserve going and provide it love.”
We are so glad this man and his dogs are doing so well after his story went viral. It is a reminder of the great difference that the love of a dog can make in a person’s life.
