Ultimate Loyalty: Dog Risks Life on Busy Highway to Stay with Injured Friend

Dogs are noted for their loyalty to their owners, but a dog in China has demonstrated extreme dedication to a four-legged friend.

On the Dazhi road in China, where his companion has been knocked down by a car, vehicles zoom past a dog who risks his own life to look after a fallen friend. With horns honking and other terrifying sights and sounds all around him, the yellow mutt stays put, standing guard over his buddy.

Earlier this week, the first dog was struck on the always busy Dazhi road when the pair managed to lose their sense of direction and wandered into oncoming traffic.

Unfortunately, the injured dog died from his wounds, but thanks to the help of his loyal protector he was picked up by a passer-by, who gave him a proper burial.

Nothing is known of the brave, devoted dog who waited patiently by his side, although witnesses said he was not hit by a car – and ran off to safety once he saw the man carefully pick up his fallen mate.

  1. My eyes got teary just reading this. What a wonderful person who stopped and picked up the injured pet and gave him the proper burial. Makes me have faith in mankind.

  2. why didn’t any human stop to help? cars speeding by and no one can stop or slow down to avoid hitting a living creature? the dog showed more compassion than most of the humans who just kept driving by. thank the one human who did stop and gave the poor dog a proper burial. 🙁

    • My thoughts exactly. In fact….it appears that all the cars still keep moving and the one car is so close how could they have stopped. Leave it to China.
      And where is the rest of the story, like why no one posted the poor dog that lived as missing.
      Gee whiz. It is enough to make a person go crazy.
