From the videos, Boom was seen trying to put the dog into his car many times, only for her to jump out each time. He finally managed to get his new friend back home and was so confused when he woke up and found a random dog walking around his house.

Boom brought the dog back to the restaurant and also gave it food and snacks. He found out later that she had been abandoned at the store, so he decided to bring her back home to live together with him.

The dog finally got its name, Moo Ta, inspired by the place where they first met.

Moo Ta took a shower before being taken to the vet to get a health check and vaccines. 

What started as a funny story of a drunk man has turned out to be a heartwarming and lovely tale of a kind animal lover and an abandoned dog. 

Moo Ta is very lucky to have met Boom that day. Now, she doesn’t have to feel lonely and hungry anymore and has a cosy house with a lovely owner to play with.
