puppyA three-month-old puppy refused to leave his sister’s side after she was hit by a car in China’s Sichuan Province. For days he stayed by his dead sister’s side protecting her until someone helped them.

Witnesses in Pixian County said they saw the two puppies lying in the middle of the street. The grey female puppy had been hit by a car and lay lifeless. The male brown puppy refused to leave her side and protected her from other cars. When any passing cars came close he would jump up and bark.

Finally, someone stopped to help and moved the dogs safely to the side of the road. When someone else tried to bury the grey dog, her brother still refused to leave her side and jumped into the hole with her. The brown dog was only separated from her when staff from a local animal protection center arrived to care for him.

    • I still believe there is a true connection to God and dog…both are here to make our lives richer, stronger, secure and loved. This story tells it all. So very sad…and loving at the same time.

    • What god ? You Americans are so fixated with fiction, you can’t see past your own brainwashing to think for yourselves…

      Dogs are the most amazing creature, but your god had nothing to do with their creation…

  1. This is so heart wrenching. Something so young showed so much compassion. People in this country could take a lesson from. Where are the owners of these poor animals and what about the idiot that caused the accident, where are these asses. My hope is this special baby will find a home that deserves such a special critter. Sending lots of hugs and kisses.

  2. I feel sick to my stomach reading this. This poor puppy laid next to his ‘lifeless sister for days before someone moved them both off the road.’ Not that I am surprised since in China they throw away their babies if they are girls because of laws. However, how could you not stop and help this poor puppy. These type of people need to be forgiven because they don’t get to enjoy the freedoms we take for granted in the states.

    Please update us on this adorable, strong willed, loyal and big hearted puppy. I would love to adopt him.

    Thank you,


  3. We humans could learn a good lesson from this story; animal siblings are incredibly bonded. I had two cockers who were brother and sister; when the brother got cancer, his sister became extremely protective of him. It would be wonderful if this puppy got a good home and the love he so truly deserves after this ordeal.

  4. Very moving and touching story. That is just one of the few reasons we will always have a dog in our home. Dogs are so unconditional and loyal.
