How would you like to spend your birthday? Charlie from Rome spent his birthday this past week returning a lost dog to its owner.

Most people like to spend their birthday celebrating, which is what Charlie was doing, along with his girlfriend Alli. While they were wandering the streets of Rome, they found a lost dog. Instead of walking past it like it was no big deal, they put their celebration on hold to help this little buddy find his way home.

They printed flyers and hung them up around their neighborhood. They brought the dog back to their apartment to help him warm up. It wasn't until the neighbor of the dog's owner saw Alli's post on Facebook about it that they were able to find his owner, an older woman.

Thanks to Charlie and Alli, the dog is now safe and happy back where he belongs.
