For those who’ve spent much time around dogs, their acts of kindness are always easy to see. It is in their nature to help. Earlier in 2020, a dog referred to as Kupata become an internet star when he escorted a group of Kindergarten students across the street, acting as a crossing guard dog.
Kupata walked the children across a very busy street in Batumi, Georgia. He held off oncoming traffic and made sure all the children safely made it across. Because of his acts, he was given a people’s choice award.
Nona Zakareishvili has known Kupata for years, feeding him scraps of food whenever she crossed paths with him. While on Radio Tavisupleba, she told the station how much Kupata loves kids. This kind act is nothing new for him, as it is part of his being. A stray dog, at times he will wait for the children to leave school to play or say hello to them.
The Adjara Tourism Department awarded Kupata with the people’s choice star upon hearing of his kind actions. The star was embedded in a doghouse which Kupata was now able to call his own. While for now he hasn’t a home, this will provide him with some shelter and a place to call his own.
Although he received these gifts, it’s the fact he did it out of his giving nature that has warmed our hearts. Expecting nothing in return and having no possessions, the pup uses whatever resources he has to help those around him. He is most now remembered for the being a memorable crossing guard dog, but we’re sure his acts of kindness will continue.
