Cyclist couple finds malnourished dog on the road and adopts him

Anyone who has rescued a lost animal knows that there is no day or place for it. And that’s what happened to a couple of cyclists here in Brazil. They had found a little dog in the middle of nowhere and decided to take it home.

The photo of the boy viralised on Facebook and his act was what touched people the most. In the image, the cyclist with the little dog stuck on his back, told a lot about that moment.


Ladislau Alcântara and Rose Jansen were on a bike tour when they first saw the animal. The dog looked like a bassĂ© – the famous “sausage” – and was very malnourished.

The place where the cyclist found him seemed to be very arid, so probably the animal was very hungry and thirsty.

The cyclists took the little dog, put it in their backpack, called him, and took it home!

It didn’t take long for the dog to win the house and the heart of this couple. The three were more and more inseparable.

The new member of the family then got a name: Rotivi, but as he himself “speaks” on Instagram: “my current human being calls me Pelanka because of the skinny I went through”.

Pelanka has now become the inseparable companion of the two cyclists and is then with them on all rides.

This couple showed that when we really want something, we always manage to make everything go well. Even without a space for Pelanka, Ladislau and Rose gave a way to adapt the backpack but did not leave the little dog abandoned on the road.

Pelanka today is all chubby and has a very happy face. And look, he even counts on Instagram won, eh?
