A man was cruising down the Amazon River when he noticed a dog abandoned on a remote island and felt he had to help her.
David Foster was on a river trip when he discovered the abandoned, hungry dog on the Amazon jungle island. “All I could see when she came racing down the shore was this skeletal body,” he explained.
He knew right away that he couldn’t leave the dog behind. But that didn’t imply it would be simple to save her.

Negrita now calls Northern Ireland home and David her father after spending 5 months recovering from illness. She’s even learned her first English word, “treats.”
