Loyal Dog Won't Leave Spot Where Owner Died In Car Crash 18 Months Ago
| Last updated
An extremely loyal doggo in Greece has remained in the spot where his owner was killed in a car crash 18 months ago - with locals so moved by his dedication that they've even built him a makeshift home at the spot he refuses to move from.
I mean, some of us may think we're a good friend to others - buying our mates a commissary pint when they've had a rough breakup, that sort of thing - but this little guy really is showing us how it's done.
While no one's really quite sure how the pooch made it to the site of the crash, which is seven-and-a-half miles away from his home - Haris' four-legged pal has remained at the roadside ever since his tragic death.
Many locals have tried to adopt the heartbroken dog, but apparently he's having none of it and refuses to move from the site - even when the weather gets unbearably hot, he'll only ever go and plonk himself in the nearby bushes for some shade.
Instead, residents have decided to create a makeshift home for the animal, and have left him a blanket to stay warm, along with regular drops of food and water.
Apparently in the local area he's been dubbed the 'Greek Hachiko', as a reference to the Japanese dog that famously waited for its owner, Hidesaburō Ueno, at Shibuya Station in Tokyo every day - even after his death in 1925, turning up as usual until his own death almost 10 years later.
And those are far from solitary instances of dogs being ALL ROUND TOP LADS.
Just last year, we reported of another doting canine who had been waiting outside the hospital where its owner died for at least four months.
Its unnamed owner, who was reportedly homeless, was stabbed and taken to Santa Casa de Novo Horizonte hospital in São Paolo, Brazil. The dog reportedly followed the ambulance all the way to the medical facility, desperate to stay with its owner.
Sadly, the person died, and its dog couldn't bring itself to move from the hospital entrance, obviously thinking the handler is still alive.
Oh man, we don't deserve dogs. We really don't.
