Since he was a very young child, Rommel Quemenales, an 11-year-old Filipino boy from Quezon City, has lived away from his divorced parents. He has an older sister who lives in another city, but ever since he finished the second grade, he has been forced to live on the streets and beg for food since he lacks the money to travel there.
Rommel asserts that the young guy who had been left behind by his family was always driven to finish his degree. Pictures of this little child and his dog have gone popular online after his story went viral on social media, winning the hearts of thousands of people across the world.
A story that was published in 2018 rapidly went viral thanks to the photograph of Rommel sleeping off while holding his dog in his arms.
Badgi, a stray dog who also walked the streets alone, is said to have provided Rommel with solace; the two have since forged strong bonds and assist one another in their struggles for existence.
Every day when Badgi asked for food, Rommel always gave it to him, and in exchange, Badgi always shielded Rommel from other begging youngsters. The two buddies shared a bed every night in an effort to get some rest after a busy day of activities.
Two little people who brightened one other’s lives were brought together by the tragic circumstances that gave them both hope. The puppy, for his part, didn’t care if his friend was a wealthy child or a homeless man; love was enough for this dog. Rommel doesn’t seem to be afraid of loneliness or being teased as Badgi is.
According to Yan.vn, thanks to the efforts of many people and Maria’s widely circulated essay about her experience with Badgi, young Rommel is now enrolled in school and constructing a brighter future with his great dog friend.
