He signaled to the firefighters that his first priority was the dog and that they could save it.
Everyone then assumed that the worst happened because it was very unlikely that the animal would survive, but the man did not give up.
Somehow, a fireman came out of the house carrying the dog Don Marija. When he saw him, he yelled at him, and the dog ran into his arms. He started crying while holding the puppy.
The photo was taken by neighbor and photographer Jonathan Bobadilla, who later posted it online after receiving rave reviews.
Despite all the monetary damage, the most important thing in the story is that Don Mario and his dog made it through the disaster unharmed.
The photos capture Don Mari’s kindness and unwavering love for his companion. His informants and neighbors quickly organized a series of fundraising events to help him.
