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.’
