When this unusual passenger boarded a subway in Istanbul, he received little attention, which made him more intriguing to a very curious commuter.
The car of a man named Amir was in the repair shop, so he took the subway to work. The entire subway experience was not part of his normal daily routine, and he certainly did not expect it to go as it did.
While he was boarding the subway, he observed an odd occurrence. Even stranger was the fact that the other passengers did not appear to notice the odd passenger who was boarding with them.
On the platform, he saw a large yellow dog waiting. The dog boarded the subway along with the other commuters when it arrived. Amir searched for the dog, but he did not see it again before he reached his destination.
Amir exited the subway and made his way to work, but he could not stop thinking about his dog. He believed he would never see the dog again, but the next day, there it was, waiting to board the subway train.
This continued for multiple days. The only time the dog received significant attention was when a passenger pushed him off the train and he was unable to board. Before Amir could assist the distressed dog, the train departed the station.
His concern for the dog intensified. Therefore, he brought tasty food the following day in the hopes that the dog would be there. He located and fed the dog the treats. However, feeding the dog did not alleviate his concerns for the animal's health.
He decided to call a shelter to see if the dog could be saved. As curious as Amir, they decided to attach a tracker to the dog to observe its daily movements. When they discovered what the dog was doing, their intrigue increased.
The dog took a long walk through the city each day before returning to the subway at night. The dog was well-traveled and clearly had a destination, but he always traveled alone.
Assuming he was a stray, they captured him and brought him to the veterinarian. It was determined that he was once a pet, but now he merely wandered the city and visited his friends and fans throughout the city. They discovered that the dog, whose name was Boji, was somewhat of a celebrity.
People were monitoring Boji and posting his pictures on social media. He had a large group of people who were feeding and caring for him despite not having an owner. Using public transportation and even a ferry, he traveled up to 20 miles per day.
The dog is a free spirit and a brilliant thinker. No one knows how he became homeless and without a family. With assistance from the community and his 118,000 Instagram followers, the dog was able to care for himself.
We hope you enjoyed his incredible story. Please feel free to share with your friends as always.
