Even though they love us unconditionally, we humans seldom return the love dogs show. This is especially true when it comes to the strays around us, to whom we are even more hostile.
Strays are not just perennially hungry for food, but also for some love and affection.
One man decided this had to change. He spent a day giving hugs to our deserving best friends with The First Hug project.
The dogs were wary of him to begin with. Used to being disrespected and mistreated all the time, they barked and cowered.
But as soon as they realized that he meant them no harm, they went quiet.
And started opening up to his love – albeit a little hesitantly at first.
But it didn’t take long for those purehearted creatures to put their complete trust in someone they’d just met.
And soon enough, they started returning the newfound love.
