Dogs have always surprised us with their hidden talents. One particular dog certainly did that, with his excellent work as a self-appointed traffic officer. He did his job exceptionally well that he became a beloved and valuable member of their community.
Kupata, the local celebrity dog from Batumi, Georgia, was initially found when he started helping children cross the street safely. He was caught on video by one of the locals, capturing the dog’s fantastic work. He even growled at oncoming traffic or when a car suddenly moved while the kids walked across the street.
Everybody was amazed to learn what this smart doggy did this every day. He took his responsibility of helping the children very seriously, making sure they crossed the street as safely as possible. Some said he even accompanied the children at the park to make them feel secure, before escorting them back to cross the road.
Nobody knew where Kupata came from. He was simply a stray dog who wandered around and found himself in the community five years ago. Some of the locals helped the dog with food and temporary shelter, which the pup was most likely grateful for.
Because of the town’s generosity, this pup decided to pay it forward and become a volunteer traffic aid.
He made several friends after settling down in this town of Batumi. He loved playing with the kids at the local park, running around and having fun. Everybody in the community loved Kupata because of his caring and sweet nature.
The town officials presented Kupata with his very own home, a doghouse with a great big ‘People’s Choice’ star adorned on the front. His image was even painted on a giant wall of one of the buildings in town. He was a real star in their community, and everyone treasured the love this dog had for them.
