Stray dogs are far too common in many parts of the world, and because of this, sometimes all they have is each other. As dog owners we know how seriously they take love and companionship, and it’s why we call them Man’s Best Friend. Their loyalty knows no end, and the heartbreaking video below proves just that.
In China, four dogs were seen sitting in the middle of the road around a friend who’d been hit by a car. The pups were blocking traffic and making cars go around them as they hoped for the best. You can see the one nudging the dog’s body as if to try and wake him. But dogs are smart. At one point they realized he was gone but continued to stand guard and protect their companion. It’s just what they do.
Dogs are known to be emotional animals who can exhibit empathy and experience traumatic pain from loss just like humans. It’s one of the reasons they make such wonderful pets. These four weren’t about to leave their friend in the middle of the road alone.
While a sad video, it shows the true character of dogs. We don’t deserve them, but we’re so lucky to have them.
