Stray Dog 'Cries With Joy' As Stranger Feeds It

A stray dog 'cried tears of joy' as a stranger took the time to feed it.

Footage of the heartbreaking encounter has been shared on social media and shows the pooch wandering around the streets of Jinzhong in Shanxi province of north China.

In the clip, the small dog can be seen standing on its hind legs as it swings its front legs in the air, appearing to be asking for food.

And as the woman hands its some sausage, the pup's eyes start to well up as if it was overwhelmed at being fed.

Another part of the clip sees the woman return to the park to check on the dog, with it recognising her and coming over to greet her.

And as soon as she offers it another treat, the dog starts to get a bit teary once again.

Speaking to Xiaoxiang Morning Post, the woman said she tried to carry the dog to her car but it jumped from her hands.

"Me and my friends were on the way to a park when we saw the stray dog," she told the publication.

"He started crying when we gave him food and I tried to put him in our car one time, but he refused and jumped back on the street.

"The dog feared that we would grab him like the dog snatchers because that's what they would do - luring the dogs to the minivan with food before fleeing."

After returning to the park for a second time, the woman noticed that the dog had gone.

She added: "I've tried to look for it a few times these few days but I couldn't find him.

"I might try my luck asking the street cleaners later."

Since the clip was shared online, it has, unsurprisingly, received a huge reaction from people, with many worried about what had become of the mystery pooch.

One user said: "Hope the dog didn't get snatched away!"

"It's a dog with soulful eyes. Please don't hurt him," another added.

The lonely dog kept turning up to the Hyundai Prime branch in the South American country. He was looked after each time and was sent on his way, but he returned every other night and employees eventually fell in love with him.
