Whether they are stuck in shelters, or roaming the streets as strays, these dogs are left lonely and depressed without a family to call their own.
One homeless dog, in particular, was left to fend for himself in the cold weather in Criciúma, Brazil. But he stumbled upon the perfect place to seek shelter.
A group of women went to visit their local Nativity scene, when they discovered the pup sleeping peacefully in the manger.
He was curled up next to the baby Jesus figure, trying his best to stay warm.
The women were in awe of the pup and where he chose to lie down.
