Pooch Carries Injured Puppy Around Town in Basket: Video! Too Cute for Words!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A puppy found wandering the streets in China with a broken leg is able to get around town -- thanks to another dog who carries him around in a basket.


The injured pooch was found by a Mr. Lan, from Chongqing, south-western China.

Lan already had another dog, Black Tiger, who used to carry a pink basket of vegetables to a street market each weekend.

So Lan took the vegetables out of the basket, and made it a makeshift carrier for the tiny dog."

New York Daily News

I read several articles about this curious incident, and there is no indication that Lan has any plans to take the injured puppy to a vet. In a country where dog meat is a delicacy, are there even any veterinary hospitals?

Assuming there`s a vet clinic in the village where Lan lives, I hope Black Tiger carries the injured puppy to a vet.

When the Chinese citizens see Black Tiger carrying the puppy in a basket do they feel compassion, incredulity or hunger pangs?

I pray that the little puppy will grow up to be a strong healthy pooch like Black Tiger, and not end up as the main course on somebody`s dinner table.
