Damian Macchi is a cycling enthusiast and his biking journeys take him all over his home country of Argentina. He loves to cross-country cycle on plenty of dirt roads, which is what led him to saving a little life recently. Damian was on a very remote dirt road recently when he spotted something out of the corner of his eye. It was a small animal in the weeds along the side of the road and it was moving as he went by. He went about his ride, but he felt concerned and decided to trust his gut and turn around to check out what he had seen. It was a good thing he did just that: the small animal was a little puppy. He caught the entire encounter on video, and the puppy was so happy to see him and immediately came running with his tail wagging.

Then, Damian’s excursion on the road turned into an important mission: to get the dog to safety. So, he picked up the puppy into his arms and made the trip back home together. The dog was finally safe and she was so happy to finally be safe and in Damian’s arms. The puppy was in luck that day: Damian loves rescuing animals just as much as he loves cycling. He brought the puppy to the veterinarian to ensure she was healthy and then posted her story to his fellow animal lovers on social media. The plan worked: a family saw Damian’s post and fell in love with the little puppy.

The family adopted her and named her Juanita. Luckily, little Juanita was very healthy except for a tick infestation on her fur. She is now receiving treatment and is doing well with her new family who loves her very much. Damian is so glad she is safe and hopes little Juanita’s story inspires others to adopt unwanted pets into their home and not to abandon their animals.
