Man Saves a Dog in Peru – level 2

14-03-2016 07:00

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).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Would you save the dog?
