stray puppy dog Christmas nativity scene rescue forever home

A stray dog looking for a place to rest found some divine intervention when she came across a nativity scene. The manger was empty and the perfect place for this dog to cuddle in and sleep. The decision to take up shelter in Baby Jesus’s spot changed everything for this young puppy as it lead her to a forever home. It’s the perfect Christmas feel good story. 

Nádia Rosângella was walking past the creche in the square of her hometown in Brazil when she spotted the cute little puppy asleep in the hay.

Just like Holy Family, this puppy didn’t have anywhere to sleep. There was no room at the inn for any of them.

As the world is going through such turmoil, it was lovely to see such a peaceful scene. This little angel was slumbering where the baby Jesus would be placed on Christmas.

This poignant discovery was one that Nádia could not ignore as an animal lover. She could not just continue on with her day. 

She wasn’t sure where the dog came from, but Nádia believes she was abandoned in the town square.

Unable to keep the dog herself, she took pictures and shared them with the hope that someone else could give the pup a good home.

It’s very appropriate that this puppy was rescued because she slept in the manger intended for Jesus, the One who was born to rescue us all.
