Going out of your way to help an animal in need certainly makes you a good person in our book. Take this cyclist for example – this man interrupted his cycling practice in order to help a dog that was spotted struggling on the side of the road. A video that was captured in Argentina showed the cyclist carrying the dog on his back as the poor canine was found abandoned and badly dehydrated.

The incident took place in the southern province of Rio Negro and the footage was shared on the Facebook page of the sports training group, Marican Team. The local Argentine media reports that three cyclists from the town of Villa Regina were cycling together when they noticed a lone dog on the side of the road.

Apparently, when the dog was spotted, he seemed severely dehydrated and disorientated. The video that was later shared to Facebook was captioned in Spanish: “Rodri, Alan, and Emiliano from Villa Regina helped an abandoned dog that was dehydrated during their training.”

While it is known that the cyclists brought the dog back to town, it is unclear who is taking care of him now. People on social media were still praising the cyclists for their kind act: “Wonderful gesture!” Nohé Bustos commented. “May life return your generosity with love.” “This is such good news among all the sadness! Thank you for your empathy, thank you for not looking away, thank you for giving him another opportunity,” Marcela Balda writes.
