Lokman is kid 11 years old he has 8 brothers and two sisters, he is living with his family in their own house they have small valley in front of their house and there is small cave in the valley, Lokman uses that cave for his dogs he brings any homeless dog he sees to take care to them he has many dogs then if any one needs dogs he gives them but people here likes puppies to take care grow up them to use the guarding, shepherd dogs and pets. Lokman built small bulkhead in front of small cave to protect dogs from flood in the winter because it rains too much in the winter. Lokman’s family situation is not good enough so every one works together to provide living money.
Lokman has donkey pulls a cart Lokman works on it to transfer vegetables from farms to the market and any thing to transfer with his donkey pulls a cart.
Every day 7 AM he takes his donkey and wait work in the market and comes back home 4PM to play and take care on his dogs and play with other kids other kids love Lokman and every one has a dog Lokman gave them, kids around Lokman help him to look after the dogs. Lokman walks more than four kilometers to bring food to his dogs from out of the town there are growing up chickens in big houses and they throw dead chickens away Lokman puts dead chickens in big bags and takes it to his dogs, he has no other way to feed those dogs.
Bad kids come to beat and hurt animals they know Lokman loves and takes care of the dogs so they attack small cave to torture dogs, Lokman knows this and he knows head of this group named Hamido, (Hamido is nickname for kid his real name Husam) Husam is bad kid, more than 6 kids follow him. Hamido’s group goes to market to steel stuff so every body hates them, Lokman very careful from this group, one night Lokman’s father was accounting his boys in beds because every night Lokman’s father accounts his sons on bed before he sleeps in that night he found just 8 boys one missed he asked Lokman’s mother we have one kid missed, Mother said lets see who is missed they knew Lokman is the one who is missed, Mother said lets go and check small cave they found him hugged small puppy and sleeping, Lokman’s father carried him with small puppy and took him to his bed, Lokman and his small puppy slept in warm bed till morning.

One day Lokman was waiting work at market saw one of his friends running toward him (gasping) his friend told him Hamido’s group is walking around small cave when Lokman heard this went to the small cave directly, he found them intending to attack dogs there happened big fight between Lokman and Hamido’s group Lokman didn’t know they prepared for him and for his dogs during the fight Lokman was crying and shouting two of Hamido’s kids attacked small cave they took two puppies to kill them when Lokman saw this he attacked two kids to save two puppies but they were more than 9 kids ( nobody were at Lokman’s house because they were at work Hamido planned for this ) they prevent him to save two puppies in this time other kids and people arrived to the fighting location to save Lokman but before this Hamido stabbed Lokman and two kids killed two puppies when help came to Lokman bad kids ran away , people took Lokman to the hospital to recover his injury.
Whole his family came to the hospital; Hamido went to the jail for two years. After six months Lokman became well and he continued his life and Hamido never came back to attack dogs.
