When a crowd was watching a street performance, a four-legged member thought was real. It was a theatrical show, where a bunch of actors was performing on the streets of Turkey. One particular scene required actor Numan Ertuğrul Uzunsoy’s character to lie on the floor and pretend to be hurt. While the injury was part of the act, a friendly dog appeared from nowhere and began comforting Uzunsoy, who he thought was unwell. "The character I played was injured and in great pain. He’d fallen off a horse, and was breathing hard," explained Uzunsoy while speaking with The Dodo



 

Although Uzunsoy was pretending to be suffering it didn't go unnoticed by the adorable pooch who suddenly made an entrance and interrupted the play just to offer some comfort to the injured stranger. Recalling the moment, Uzunsoy said, "I felt warmth on my face. First, I thought my costar was approaching me." But he was mistaken. When he finally realized that the warmth was offered by a cute doggo, Uzunsoy could not help but break his character by flashing a heart-melting smile. "I was very happy when I felt the dog's kisses," he said, adding, "I was very touched. He was like an angel who wanted to help me. It was a very emotional moment for me. I was not expecting it."



 

At around 15 minutes 40 seconds the dog can be seen entering the frame before he slowly makes his way to Uzunsoy. Fortunately, no one seemed to mind the interruption and instead, they were quite pleased with the dog's sudden appearance. In the video, the audience can be heard loudly clapping as the dog sniffs Uzunsoy and lays his head on his neck softly. "My castmates loved the dog, and the audience was very happy," continues Uzunsoy. "Everyone cheered." Eventually, one of the crew members approached the dog and escorted him offstage. He reportedly remained there for some time before strolling away. But Uzunsoy hopes that his meeting with the dog was just the first of many acts to come. 



 

According to The Dodo, Uzunsoy expressed his wish to reunite with a pup and help him find a home in return for the kindness he had shown the actor. Apparently, he went to the same place to look for the pup but to no avail. "The next day I went to the same place, looking for him. People told me he usually hangs out there. I went again today," he said. Uzunsoy is determined not to be dishearted by this and says he would continue looking for him until he finally finds him. "I'll look for him until I find him. I've always loved animals." When the news reached social media, people expressed how adorable the exchange was.
