We have another heartwarming story about a stray dog adopted by the whole mall security team in Manila, Philippines!
A stray dog named Dogdog became viral on social media recently because he wandered inside a local shopping mall in Taguig City in the Philippines. Dogdog was a regular visitor inside the mall. He would be usually seen near the escalator or at the food court. Regular mall patrons would even greet Dogdog whenever they see him.
Dogdog seems so comfortable and not scared of the presence of the people inside the mall. He would even lie on his back to beg for a belly rub. However, since he does not have a leash, some people might get scared of him. A security guard escorted Dogdog to go outside the mall after he gave him belly rubs.
A mall visitor named Jan Mart Calimpong took the video of how Rommel Francisco treated Dogdog, one of the mall’s security guards. The kind gesture touched him because the dog felt secure and not threatened inside the mall. Jan Mart was a dog lover, too; he found the act cute and share-worthy. The video was posted on Facebook and garnered more than 6,000 comments and 145,000 reactions.
Later on, it was found out that the mall’s whole security team fostered Dogdog. Dogdog would usually be seen during the assembly time of the security guards.
Rico Suco, one of the mall’s security guards, said that Dogdog is a kind and gentle dog. Dogdog is well-loved and respected by the team.
Dogdog is one lucky stray dog! He may not have a family to take care of him, but he has the whole security team who loves and treats him as part of their team. Kudos to the mall administration as well for welcoming Dogdog to the mall premises.
