Stray dogs are far too common in many parts of the world, and as a result, they sometimes have nothing but each other. As dog owners, we understand how seriously they take love and companionship, which is why they are known as Man’s Best Friend. Their devotion knows no bounds, as evidenced by the heartbreaking video below.
Four dogs were seen in China sitting in the middle of the road around a friend who had been hit by a car. The puppies were blocking traffic and forcing cars to go around them, hoping for the best. You can see the one nudging the dog’s body, as if trying to wake him up. However, dogs are intelligent. They realized he was gone at one point but continued to stand guard and protect their companion. It’s just what they do.
Dogs are known to be emotional animals that, like humans, can show empathy and suffer traumatic pain from loss. It’s one of the reasons they make excellent pets. They weren’t about to abandon their friend in the middle of the road.
While this is a sad video, it demonstrates the true nature of dogs. We don’t deserve them, but we’re extremely fortunate to have them.
