While he was out wandering the streets, he stumbled on a group of people selling live dogs in bags to be used for meat.Horrified by the sight, he immediately offered to buy one of the dogs for 600 Chinese Yuan (a little less than $90), even though is apartment building didn't allow animals.

Danielle toldThe Dodo:

His environment isn’t dog-friendly so he couldn’t buy more, but [he] at least got to save one.

So the canine, who the man named 'Doggo' in Cantonese, moved into his office, which has come with its own set of challenges.

His coworkers are not particularly enthused about the idea of cleaning up the mess that Doggo causes in the office.

My dad's colleagues are complaining about the mess Doggo is making, but he's still trying his best to provide a good environment for him.

While they're currently working out the kinks of the situation, no doubt that this is one pup who is better off.One selfless gesture saved a life, and for that Danielle can be rightfully proud.

While most of the Chinese population, especially younger generations, don't eat dog meat, it is still sold every day, and festivals like Yulin have shone the spotlight on that.Humane Society International and Animals Asia have both been working tirelessly to end this cruel industry. You can help them by making a donation to their organizations, here, for HSI, and, here, for Animals Asia.
