Baptist Amah is the new owner of a domestic dog named lady Chinyere. The Nigerian man warmed hearts on Facebook with a heartbreaking story of how he came to be the owner of the dog.
He said the siblings and parents of Chinyere were victims of a fatal car accident as they attempted to cross the road. Fortunately only Chinyere survived but has been left with memories of the tragic incident.
Baptist Amah was said to have taken ownership of the dog from the original owner out of pity and compassion for the animal.
Amah took on the new responsibility of looking after the dog and fending for it. According to him, he also performed somewhat the duties of a therapist to help the dog recover emotionally and as time went on, the dog healed.
His post read in part:
"CHINYERE was barely 3weeks old when I first met her. Her mum and siblings died in a car accident when they're were about crossing the road. Only Chinyere survived... when I saw the scenario...it was so tragic.
"Tears dripped down my eyes seeing and imagining how a young PUPPY will survive in this kinda wicked world alone without a companion. I decided to talk to the owner and he gave CHINYERE to me..I brought her back home and started feeding her with complan milk and lots of flesh and food.
"I cheered her up and also told her the tragic lines in my life. I encouraged Chinyere and she accepted me as her new Guardian. In no distant time Lady became used to me and very healthy and I'm happy that's she's move on."
He went on to reveal that he has a lot in store for himself and Chinyere. However, Amah didn't explain how the dog came by its human name.
