Mexico City, 2015. Animal rights activist Dalia Gámez is driving through her neighborhood when she spots something heart-breaking.
Lying by the side of the road is a dog ravaged with cancerous tumors. Dalia decides to take the dog home with her, and names him Boby.
Dalia and Boby immediately head to the vets to get the tumors examined. They determine that the dog is two years old, and send him for chemotherapy to treat the tumors. The level of treatment needed to deal with the tumors will be harsh on Boby, so Dalia decides to stay with him whilst he receives it.
Vets say that Boby needs to receive 8 lots of chemotherapy in a 2 month period. This will take a massive toll on Boby’s already frail body. Will he survive the treatment?
Against all odds, he pulls through. He braves the chemotherapy sessions, which turn out to successfully remove the cancer. The tumors begin to subside, and he starts to grow a new fur coat.
Dalia’s neighbors hear Boby’s story, and actually start to line up outside her house in order to catch a glimpse of the incredible dog. Dalia decides that it’s time for Boby to find a long term home, and puts him up for adoption. It doesn’t take long for a new family to be found.
Saying goodbye is hard for Dalia. She rescued Boby, and nursed him back to health, so she naturally has a tight bond with the dog. But Boby’s new family are warm and caring. Dalia knows that they will take good care of him.
This story is proof that if you are strong, and have caring people around you, you will flourish, whatever your circumstances.
