Photos Of Schoolgirl Sheltering Stray Dog From Rain Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity

'To see there are still people who care about animals fills me with happiness.'

Two photos of a schoolgirl sheltering a stray dog from the rain have warmed hearts around the world after they were shared on social media.

The images reportedly show engineering student Daniela Segura Morales protecting a young pup from the downpour.

The images are believed to have been taken by a passer-by who was touched by the scene of kindness in the city of Huancayo, Peru.

They were later shared on a University Facebook page called Memes Fis UNCP with the caption: "To see there are still people who care about animals fills me with happiness.

"Seeing her drying the little dog with her blazer without caring what anyone thinks says a lot.

"If we all followed her example, I assure you this would be a different country."

The images have been shared by thousands of people online, with hundreds commenting to thank the student for her kindness.

Let's hope the pooch finds a more permanent shelter sometime soon.
