In June 2019, Cengiz was at work one day when she noticed that one of the dogs was acting strangely. Instead of laying down with the other dogs, the pup was standing by the door expectantly.

“She was looking at me,” Cengiz told The Dodo. “I said, ‘Baby, is there a problem?'”

Cengiz welcomed the dog inside. Once they were in Cengiz’s office, the dog gently lifted up her paw. That’s when Cengiz realized the dog was bleeding.

Cengiz immediately jumped into action to help the dog. She grabbed some antiseptic and bandages and cleaned the dog’s wound. The dog stayed completely still while Cengiz worked—it was clear that the dog trusted the pharmacist.

“When I was done, she laid down as if to thank me,” Cengiz said. “She was saying, ‘I trust you.'”

Cengiz let the dog hang out in her office for the rest of the day. Cengiz gave her lots of food and water, and she also gave the dog a bed to nap on.

By the end of the day, the pup was feeling better. Cengiz checked her paw out one more time. Then she let the dog go back outside, where she rejoined her friends. For a moment, Cengiz thought about taking the dog home, but she wasn’t able to since she already had a dog.

“Unfortunately, I couldn’t take her home,” Cengiz said. “I’ve been dealing with street animals for years. I feed them and heal them, and help them find homes when I can.”

Still, the stray dog is always welcome in front of Cengiz’s pharmacy. There, the pup will always have plenty of fresh food and water.

Cengiz shared a video of the stray dog on Twitter, and it quickly went viral, receiving over a million views. Everyone loved seeing the compassion Cengiz had for this injured stray pup.

“I do it because they feel. We need to help those who need it,” Cengiz said. “People should teach their children to love and respect animals and nature. Then we can all live together in a beautiful world.”
