Petya is an ordinary seven-year-old child. Parents gave him their love and were engaged in education, and he grew up kind and sympathetic. Petya had many friends, he was loved by neighbors and teachers at school. Petya was sociable, got along with people and loved animals.
That day the boy was playing in the yard. He wanted to build a house using branches, but the structure didn’t want to stick together. Petya heard strange sounds behind him.
Looking around, the child saw a dog that was following him. The dog was thin and dirty, it was clear that the animal had no home. The dog walked slowly, and her eyes were very sad.
Petya had seen this dog several times before but was sure that she had a home.
The child was not afraid to approach animals, even homeless ones, but he always followed his mother’s advice that one should approach unfamiliar dogs slowly and carefully.
Petya approached the dog and began to talk to him.
“You are alone? Hungry, probably. Why don’t you have a home?”
The dog stood in front of the child, head bowed and not reacting in any way to his speech. Suddenly the dog sank to the ground and laid its head on the grass. The boy was very sorry for the animal.
Petya thought for a while, and then quickly ran home. As soon as he crossed the threshold, the child began to persuade his parents to take the dog.
“Mommy, daddy, let’s take it for ourselves. I will take care of him myself, honestly, ”the child’s speech was filled with emotions.
Parents were not opposed and soon Petya and his mother went to the place where the boy left the dog and took her to their yard.
The dog did not mind at all and immediately recognized Petya as his new owner. Thanks to a caring boy, a stray dog has a home where he is loved, and the child himself has found a true friend.
