These video clips from Yinchuan city in the Ningxia Hui region document a dog faithfully guarding his friend in the middle of the road after it had been hit by a car. The dog refused to leave his friend’s side all night, witnesses said, despite frigid temperatures and oncoming traffic.
Residents near the scene said they saw the pair on December 22 and decided to put a stool next to the animals to alert drivers.
“It is our stool. A kind-hearted woman put it next to the dogs to protect them from being hit again by another car,” one woman named Ma Hongyan said.
Temperatures that night dropped as low as -13 degrees celsius, but the dog refused to move.
“The dog has been here for his friend all night,” said another onlooker.
Eventually, the deceased white dog was picked up by a restaurant owner and buried in a park. Witnesses say the little brown dog still trotted alongside as his friend’s body was carried away, refusing to let it out of sight.
His whereabouts now are unknown.
Sadly enough, we’ve seen a similar story in the past.
