I hope those camera men rescue those poor dogs and find them a new home! If it were me, I would have fashioned a stretcher to carry the weak one, and taken them away to safety. That little guy really looked like he needed help.

He even barked a little - like "WTF!? Why aren't you guys helping?".



UPDATE: CNN and the UK Telegraph have both reported that the dogs have been rescued since the footage aired, and are both receiving veterinary care; the more seriously wounded dog is at a clinic in the city of Mito, while the protective spaniel-type dog is receiving care at a shelter in the same town.


YEAH!!!!!!! They are saved!!!

Such a beautiful example of what ANY creature can do.
I noticed the Spaniel was drinking the water............. If he isn't dead now he soon will be, but what a way to go. Respect.

I was blown away by how when the hurt dog raised it's head as if it was going to get up the dog standing watch put it's front leg over it as it to say "stay still, don't get up...I'm here and everything is going to be okay."


Yeah, what was really happening was the hurt dog smelled the food the people had & 'protector' dog was holding him down cause he wanted it for himself.

It is a touching example of loyalty but I also can't help but think that the resources put into removing, transporting & caring for these dogs would be better served on, oh I don't know, people.


Pretty fair comment.

Man, if that doesn't tug at ones heart, I don't know what will.
That is very awesome and sad at the same time. S+F

YES. That dog has what every human needs, it's what we call "humanity". This dog is so loyal and caring

It's heart-wrenching and tear-jerking at the same time. There is much to be learned from animals. It reminds me of a blog I found once that had photos of one bird trying to pull his dead mate out of the street, where she had gotten hit by a car. Again, we have much we can learn from animals.

When you see dogs being so loyal and caring like this, you can't help not to think they must have a soul.

This as just made me choke up and want to cry. It really is the truest words ever spoken that dogs are mans best friend, I have two myself and can tell by the way they act that they would die to protect each other and my family.. so loyal.

We humans could learn a few lessons from our animal friends.

I agree dogs are so loyal,they need more help as they don't understand what has happened or where their owners have gone. I would save my dog above any human,who says we as a species should always come first. Human superiority over other animals is so wrong,if the earth had every species except man it would be a forest filled paradise for animals.

I would want to be a part of that paradise


Dogs are perfect creatures IMO. They don't judge, they don't care if you're rich or poor, ugly or beautiful, they don't hold a grudge, they only care about just you.

I know for a fact that if anyone pointed a loaded gun at me, my dog would take that bullet for me without hesitation. My best human friend wouldn't do that.

How do you reward that kind of loyalty? Humans are unworthy of it.

As I said before, it is beyond priceless.

Exactly, well said mate.

This is why I know there is more to life then it being an accident.

That is one of the most amazing videos I have ever seen, and what's even sadder is there are many more videos like it where a dog will guard the body of his friend just waiting for it to get up.

I'm glad the dogs got looked after. Any symbol of overcoming adversity and hardship should be given a chance. I'm so glad these dogs were given the mercy they rightly deserved after what they went through.

This story of canine loyalty particularly hits home for Japanese.... Outside of the super busy Shibuya train station in Tokyo, there's a popular meeting place where there's a statue of a purebred Akita dog named Hachiko. Hachiko used to greet his owner, Professor H. Ueno, in the 1920s at the station every day. One day, in 1925, Prof. Ueno died before he could return to the station. It's said that for the next nine years, Hachiko showed up at the Shibuya station at the exact time waiting for the Professor. People who noticed Hachiko, and who knew that he used to accompany the Professor, started giving him food. Finally, in 1934, a year before Hachiko died, a statue was erected at Shibuya station to honor Hachiko's loyalty. *The cool thing is that Hachiko was present at the unveiling of the statue.

Ahh awesome ok, to me it looked dead.. Cool deal. Dogs are wonderful animals, I have a rott/shep mix and wouldn't trade him for anything. I value him more than a lot of human scum we have on this rock.

There was a similar story to this that happened in Scotland called Greyfriars Bobby, You can read about at the link below:

Dogs are descendants of wolves.

Wolves are social animals who live in packs.

I really don't see what's all this fuss all about.

Man, I found that hard to watch, it takes quite a bit to make be bleary eyed but that stings.

I have a firm belief in the inteligence of animals, couldn't help think what rescue effort would be made for these survivors.

I'd take em back the moment I saw them, animals are people too. ( I am not a vegan).

Peace.

I watch things like this, and when people don't understand why I don't eat animals....it's this love that about any animal can feel. Compassion, emotional pain, sadness not to mention playfulness, comfort, happiness. Most animal are not "dumb animals" if this doesn't move you, you have less compassion than your run of the mill dirty dog.
