The tale of the underdog is one that resonates with nearly everyone. We find comfort in the knowledge that no matter where our beginnings are, our futures can take the shape of whatever hopes and desires we hold. However, our lives are often influenced by factors much bigger than us. Take, for instance, the tale of this rescue dog, Yumenosuke.
Yumenosuke’s story ends with what every underdog hopes to achieve in their lifetime. As a member of Peace Winds Japan, Yumenosuke has spent the latter part of his life dedicated to humanitarian relief. Yumenosuke fulfills a vital role by assisting teams in finding survivors in post-earthquake rubble.
However, before he was saving lives, Yumenosuke was living in a kill shelter in Hiroshima. Peace Winds Japan found Yumenosuke in 2010 as a small, trembling puppy with a dismal future. However, the members of the post-earthquake rescue team were able to see the underlying potential in Yumenosuke and granted him the opportunity of a lifetime.
Lucky for us, Yumenosuke’s story is now one that we can all cheer for. Take a look at Yumenosuke’s humble beginnings below.
This is how Yumenosuke was found. He was only four months old and living in a small animal shelter in Hiroshima.
He was scheduled to be put down the very day that members of Peace Winds Japan saved him.
Because Peace Winds Japan, otherwise known as PWJ, was able to adopt Yumenosuke, he has been able to save the lives of earthquake victims in return.
Yumenosuke, whose name translates to “Dream,” is now living a happy and healthy life.
Yumenosuke works alongside his human co-workers, helping to find earthquake survivors.
In 2014, Yumenosuke went on his first mission with PWJ.
He was tasked with dealing with post-earthquake landslides in Hiroshima.
Yumenosuke works in dangerous environments like this all over the globe.
However, just like the other members of PWJ, Yumenosuke is fully committed to his job and his enthusiasm is clear.
Yumenosuke’s story continues to inspire others every day.
From kill shelter to rescue dog, Yumenosuke is one pup who definitely beat the odds!
