We all know that mourning the loss of a friend is difficult, and for us animal lovers, when our four-legged companions go over the rainbow bridge, the pain is unbearable. Now imagine how our pets feel when their canine friends pass away, and how traumatic this is when it happens in front of them.

This past February, a small black dog from Nuevo León, México, witnessed how his best friend got run over by an automobile. The small pet grieved for over 40 minutes and constantly tried to revive his best friend. Sadly, no one did anything to help the injured pet and the black dog couldn’t save his friend.

Juan Raul Quiñones was walking near the accident scene and saw how the black dog barked and tried to help the hurt dog. He recorded the sad scene with his cell phone.

“I didn’t know what to do,” said Quiñones. “I had mixed emotions, I felt sad and powerless. I spent 40 minutes there and saw how 15 different people walked by, ignoring what was going on.”

The man uploaded the video to YouTube and many have criticized him saying he too did nothing to help the pets.

Quiñones said that he tried to take the survivor home, but the canine growled at him and refuse to come home.

After experiencing such sad incident, Quiñones said he now has no doubt in his mind that all animals feel pain as much as humans do. He said his view on pets has forever been changed.

A few days after the video was uploaded to the social media site, a message was added to the video description. It reads:
“The black dog was found! He belongs to a neighbor.”

Even though we are sad that no one helped the injured pet, and the only person interested on what was going on did nothing more than record the scene, it gives us peace to know that the grieving dog does have a home and is safe.

  1. WHAT DID YOU DO BESIDES TAKE A STUPID VIDEO, WHY DIDNT YOU DO SOMETHING, AND DID YOU GET TEH REMAINING DOG OR LET IT GET HIT SO YOU COULD RECORD IT TOO?

      • Oh my goodness, CALM DOWN. She’s not a moron. There is no reason to be filming a dead dog. It’s sad. He recorded it, and then decided to do something. Not thinking very straight.

    • yeah he tried to help. anyways sometimes you need nature to play out by itself. there wasnt anything he could do to save the dog. and are you really going to tell me that the black dog was going to let him take him away?!

    • Still though, you don’t need to record stuff like this. He shouldn’t have even recorded it. He should have just done what he did without recording.

    • Were I to come across this scene, I would scoop up both dogs. Bury the one, and hold the other in my arms nonstop for days! THAT is what he needed. It would have been tricky, with my tiny dog at home, but I would have made it work.

  2. asfar as i could see the dog that was hit, was clearly already dead, nothing could be done for him. And if the other dog was growling, it might have not been safe to try and pick it up. All in all, a good video to show that animals have definitely feelings, and can grief when they lose a friend, animal or human.
