In mid July, Quirós took his wife, two children, and Talero on a family trip to visit his brother in the southern region of Argentina, but on the way there, their car broke down on low traffic road. When this happened, Quirós decided to exit the car taking along his dog Talero in search of help. However, there was a heavy snow storm in the area and reports say Quirós probably got disoriented and lost in the storm.

Quirós’s body was found frozen 23 days later in Alto Río Senguer, Patagonia, Argentina. The discovery was made by a family member who recognized the German shepherd standing near the body.

“Quirós’s body was found under a bush thanks to his loyal dog that remained next to his owner and when the rescue unit was nearby, the dog came forward,” said one of the rescuers.

Authorities said the body shown no signs of violence. They concluded Quirós died from exposure to the cold elements and frostbite. There were signs that Talero tried keeping his owner warm by laying near his feet, torso and head. Quirós’s family, who had remained in the car, was found days after the car broke down. All are in good health.

      Are you serious?? Many animals, even domesticated, resort to instinct to survive. The dog has fur, and was surrounded by water (snow). There is nothing ‘strange’ about this, you should get out more often. It was a heavy snowstorm in a very rural area.

    Dogs are the most amazing animals, more loving, loyal, and understanding than humans. We know so little about them.
