Man sleeps with his 600 rescued dogs to keep them warm in -20 degree winter night


Some people are willing to do anything just to help others, and this man called Dejan from Serbia is definitely one of them.

An angel in disguise, Dejan is taking care of 600 street dogs that he rescued from all over the place, making sure that they stay alive and able to withstand the extremely cold temperature.

Every winter night in Serbia recorded an extremely low temperature of almost -20 degree, which makes it hard for both human and animals. This situation is not any better for the kind man as Dejan and his rescued dogs only have a wooden house to take shelter and sleep in this harsh weather.

Eventhough Dejan has a working stove and can light a fire, the best way to produce heat is to sleep together. Since then, Dejan and his dogs have been sharing body heat with each other for almost two decades.

“It’s nice to see them snoring and sleeping because I know we survived one more day,” said Dejan.

Dejan always did his best and everything he can just to make sure that his furry friends are in the best condition that they could ever be. This is so that they can survive the harsh winter that began in November and could last even until May

“When it is bad weather, they’re full of mud and there are no doors on the wooden house. The dog sleeps on wet floors,” explained Dejan.

Recently, Dejan rescued a puppy whose hip and one of its legs were broken. He also received another puppy that was brought by the owner, in a bag – thinking that could be the best way to bring the dog from his house – which obviously is not the best way to treat any dog in this world.

Dejan said that despite the difficult times, dogs gave him hope.

For this man with a heart of gold, his happiness comes from watching all his puppies playing every day in the sunrise.

He will never be bored spending his times with these adorable furry friends.

Despite his overflowing love, Dejan understands that each and every dog needs their own family and a more suitable place for them to call home.
