This is the moment a stray dog waits outside several shops for cardboard boxes to construct a makeshift mat to sleep on to protect it from the cold floor.
According to local media, the dog is well known among shop workers in the bus terminal and frequently begs for cardboard boxes to protect it from the cold floors.
The dog was filmed walking around the Mariano Moreno bus station in the city of Rosario in the northern Argentine province of Santa Fe, and the footage was shared on social media and viewed nearly one million times.

In the clip, the cute black dog is seen patiently waiting outside a shop as an employee approaches and hands the pooch a small box.
Taking it in its mouth, the dog walks off and sets the box down on the floor before approaching another shop.
However, after waiting patiently for some minutes, the dog leaves the shop empty-handed and returns to the first box, which has been since been placed under a bench.
The woman filming the dog notices it struggling with the box and she helps to flatten it with her foot.
The adorable stray then sits on the flattened box and settles down for a well-earned rest.
Netizen ‘Drcadillac’ commented: “If you leave this dog alone in your house it will build two extra floors and a swimming pool!”
‘Laura Barreiro’ said: “I am surprised by the dog’s intelligence and I have a lot of respect for animals. It is sad that nobody wants to adopt it.”
