Tao the dog is a wonder boy. He managed to escape his sad fate of being thrown in a garbage can, and was spotted at the right time, by the right person.
Tao is a very lucky dog. Things might have been tragic for him, but instead he is now growing up in a loving family.
Tao was about to be dumped in a trash can
It all started when Florine Piteau from Langon, France, heard someone crying for help. It was about 6 o'clock in the morning, she had just woken up and opened her shutters, when these whimpering sounds alerted her.
Florine went outside, and eventually found a tiny puppy, which at first she mistook for a rat. It was crawling on the sidewalk and still had its umbilical cord attached.
"I put him in my wool jacket and took him home," she explained.
Tao, as she named him, was a little fighter. Someone had certainly planned to throw him in a garbage can or even in the Garonne River, along with the rest of his litter. But Tao must have been lost on the way. Luckily, Florine heard him crying just in time.
Once at home, the rescuer did everything she could to warm up the newborn, using a hair dryer and hot water bottles. She then took him to the vet, who said he was a Labrador and Golden Retriever mix.
Today, Tao is a big boy

For Florine, Tao was like a gift from heaven. She took care of him around the clock, to ensure him the best start in life.
Thanks to her love and the time she devoted to him, the dog grew up healthy, despite the absence of his biological mother.
Today, he is a big guy who leads a life full of adventures and makes his whole family happy!
