Lek Lek is a compassionate dog from the country of Sri Lanka. Now she lives along with her loving family.
Her human dad is a caring person who makes her feel loved and safe. For that, the dog loved her owner. Though her life right now is wonderful, that was not always the case.
The dog used to live on the streets of Nuwela Eliya. She usually just wanders around looking for food or waiting for someone to bring her food.
But despite all those hardships in the street life, the dog was pretty positive herself. Lek Lek was a dog determined to find a nice and loving family. And luckily for her, her efforts to find a family have finally paid off.
Several years ago, a few elephant rescuers were travelling through Nuwela Eliya in Sri Lanka. While the elephant rescuers were on their way, they saw the stray dog on the streets. The elephant rescuers are working for the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand.
The elephant rescuers visited Nuwela Eliya for them to have research on Elephants. Elephant Nature Park is a Nature Park that rehabilitates rescued abused elephants and elephants that are suffering. But, this time, they were not out to save an elephant.
The rescuers were walking down the streets of Sri Lanka when they saw a homeless dog who waves her tail continuously. She does that for other people to notice her.
The puppy was so energetic in waving her tail. She was so active, and because of that, the rescuers stopped and petted her.
After petting her, the group decided to continue on their way, but the dog wanted more than just petting. So the dog started following them.
While on their way, the group realised that she is just behind them. The group picked her up and returned her to where they met her and went on their way. But the dog was persistent, so she followed them again.
This time the group helped her. They asked people on the streets if they wanted to adopt her. But the people declined.
Luckily for this dog, the group’s driver Thushara decided to adopt the dog. Now the dog has a forever home.
A few years later, one of the group members decided to visit Lek Lek. Lek Lek still knows the woman despite the last seeing 3 years.
