It is true when they say that those who have less give more.

This little stray pup named Gunnar was one of its many examples.

It was just a month ago when he was found and rescued from a dumpsite-like place.

He was covered in dirt and surrounded by all sorts of trash.

But as soon as his rescuers approached him, he did the unexpected.

Little Gunnar offered them his bread.

He looked so weak, he was shaking and stumbling on his feet.

But he didn’t mind at all. He was still wagging his tail and happy to offer his rescuers something as a gift of thanks.

I think we will all agree if I’d say that’s what dogs really do, right? They share and give love whenever possible, regardless of the situation.

The poor dog was rescued just in time. He was obviously weak, cold, and all alone in that abandoned place.

“His absolutely positive attitude kept him going.”

That’s what one of his rescuers from Sidewalk Specials named Rachael said.

The little pup’s fighting spirit became the key to his fast recovery. It didn’t take long before Gunnar was given the clean bill of health by the vet.

Soon after, he was up for foster care and eventually stayed with his foster family for a week before meeting his new forever home and family.

It is indeed true that when a door closes another one opens. In Gunnar’s case, being found and rescued in that hopeless place was the start of his second shot at life.

He was just 9 weeks old when he found his new forever family.

His new human mom, Freya told The Dodo, “He was tiny, tiny. Like half of my arm.”

Usually, dogs would feel shy and would stay distant for a couple of days or weeks once they get into a new home.

For Gunnar, however, that was not the case.

“He wasn’t difficult to open to us at all. It feels like he was very thankful that he got rescued,” Freya said.

Dogs do really know how to show appreciation towards people who showed them nothing but genuine love and care.

For the first time in his life, Gunnar felt free.

Dogs are naturally playful and that’s what transpired from the little doggo.

He was curious about almost everything. It’s like it was his first time to see and run on a lawn.

Everything that a pup like him must experience was given right before his eyes and he couldn’t be more thankful for it.

Three years later, Gunnar had grown but he’s still that high-spirited dog who always loves to play around.

He also has a knack for collecting stones.

And when we say rocks, they’re not just randomly picked rocks.

They’re “special” and were meticulously selected by Gunnar.

“He first goes around, searches for the right rock. It’s not any rock. And then he brings it to you,” said Freya.

“He’s definitely our little rockstar,” she added.

They even started to foster at the start of the pandemic to give their “little rockstar” some friends.

Growing up is without a doubt going to be a little boring without any friends around, so they thought about taking in additional furry friends.

“He’s naturally friendly and inquisitive,” said Gunnar’s human dad. “Once he’s gotten used to them, he’s sort of always the one showing them around. He’s still the same happy, little creature.”

We’re positive that Gunnar’s going to grow happily together with his new family and friends.
