A recent theatrical performance in Turkey called for actor, Numan Ertuğrul Uzunsoy to collapse during a street play. It was all pretend of course, and the audience knew that he was perfectly fine.

Well, all except one adorable four-legged onlooker, who wasted no time to rush to his aid.

As the Actor laid on the floor, eyes closed, he was surprised to feel warmth on the side of his face, yet assumed it was his castmates and stayed in character.

That is until, he felt the warm kisses of life from the stray pooch, who was adorably trying to revive him.

At that moment, he could no longer keep in character and broke into a smile and his co-stars joined him to show the loving stray, just how much of a good boy he was, by giving him well-deserved belly rubs.

Eventually, the stray was escorted off the stage so that the show could go on and after spending a few minutes watching, the mysterious dog strolled away leaving Uzunsoy unable to express truly express his gratitude.

According to locals, the dog frequents the area often so Uzunsoy stops by once in a while, hopeful, to one day bump into the kind pup again with plans to find him a home perfect for all that love he has to give. Fingers crossed the two are reunited!
