According to local media, three cyclists from the town of Villa Regina were travelling together when they came across an abandoned dog in the middle of the road that appeared dehydrated and disorientated.
The video was accompanied with the message: “Rodri, Alan and Emiliano from Villa Regina helped an abandoned dog that was dehydrated during their training.”
The cyclists brought the dog back to town, but it is currently unclear who is caring for the animal at the moment.
Netizen ‘Venzo Argentina’ commented: “You can also train your heart and we praise this kind act.”
‘Clari Gomez’ said: “Such a big heart, I have no words. Carrying the dog on your shoulders and cycling for miles. You are an example to others, God bless you.”
‘Monica Munoz’ wrote: “They are real sportsmen. Well done for being so kind and looking after our four-legged friends.”
