Man Saves a Dog in Peru - level 2
In Peru, there is harsh stormy weather. It is affecting people and animals.
A dog somehow became stranded on a rock in the middle of a large, muddy river. He jumped into the river and tried to climb the walls of a bridge, but the water tossed him about. People watched helplessly until the dog finally got on some stones at the river’s bank, and a taxi driver pulled the dog out of the river.
Rescue workers took the dog to a nearby shelter and named him after the river, although Lucky would be a good name!
Difficult words: harsh (difficult and uncomfortable), become stranded (to be unable to move), toss (throw), bank (the edge of a river).
