However, as she bends down the dog raises its front-left paw, presenting it to the pharmacist who sees the paw is injured.

Cengiz told reporters: “First I tried to understand what the problem was. The dog literally presented its paw, I saw there was blood. Then I cleaned it, I put an ointment on it and kept it for a while in the shop. Some locals wanted to adopt it but this is a stray dog that wants freedom, so it left the shop.”

Another clip shows Cengiz treating the wound as the stray holds it hands patiently for her. The dog then lies on its side and Cengiz gives it a belly rub.

Local media report Cengiz is known for helping stray animals in the area.
