A man was on a cruise down the Amazon River when he saw a dog stranded on a deserted island and knew he had to save her.
David Foster was on a river cruise when he first spotted the abandoned, starving dog on the island in the middle of the Amazon jungle. “When she came running down the beach all I could see was this skeletal form,” he said.
He knew instantly there was no way he was going to leave the dog behind. But that didn’t mean saving her was going to be easy.
After 5 months of recovering her health, Negrita now calls Northern Ireland home and David her dad. She’s even learned her first English word – “treats”.
