Pharmacist aides stray dog in a viral video that has the internet in tears

Dogs can be a lot more expressive than humans. That is the common consensus the internet has arrived at after a video showing a dog seeking help from a pharmacist went viral.

The short clip shows an Istanbul dog stood at the door of a pharmacy looking at the pharmacist with a feeble expression.

The pharmacist, whose name is Banu Cengiz, is a compassionate dog owner herself.

Banu once rescued her own dog from the streets, and often when she comes across other dogs she creates a cozy nook for them at her facility. Rather than looking for attention, she simply wants to help animals in need.

A week ago, Banu was at work when she noticed a dog outside the pharmacy acting strangely. Rather than, for example, laying in the beds she made for the others, this one was standing at the door in expectation of something.

“She was looking at me,” Cengiz told The Dodo. “I said, ‘Baby, is there a problem?'”

Banu opened the door for the dog when she realized there was some kind of a problem. And indeed, the poor puppy was bleeding from a cut in her paw.

She was begging for help, and as it can be seen in the sweet video, Banu was more than happy to tend to her wound.

The pup placed its paw into her hand, after which Banu cleaned the wound and applied medicine on it, apart from also providing her with water and food.

“When I was done, she laid down as if to thank me. She was saying, ‘I trust you’,” Banu says.

After the wound was cleaned, the sweet animal was given some necessary antibiotics. Banu says the dog even laid down when the procedure was over. It just needed a place to rest peacefully, and Banu did not disturb her sleep.

By the end of the day, unfortunately, Banu had to let her go but wished that there was more she could do to assist the friendly dog.

“Unfortunately, I couldn’t take her home,” she said.
