Ultimate Loyalty: Japanese Dog Refuses To Leave Injured Friend Behind

Sniff Seattle Bellevue Dog Walkers, Japanese Dog Refuses To Leave Injured Friend Behind
Watch the video (below). It's sad, yet touching. And ultimately inspiring!

Many of the pictures and videos we've seen of the devastating Japan earthquake and tsunami have told the story from a human perspective.

That's understandable. We're people, after all. And there aren't too many news reporters from the animal world.

For a different view of the tragedy, watch this video (below). Fortunately, some human reporters in Japan were able to capture the story of couple of the quake and tsunami's animal victims.

Two dogs. One injured, and another who steadfastly refuses to leave his buddy's side. Friendship and loyalty when times are rough. It speaks volumes about the strength of character of our dogs. It's sad, yet touching. And ultimately inspiring!



If any of us ever found ourselves in a similar situation, we'd all hope to have a friend this dedicated sticking by us!

Word is the two dogs in the video were picked up after this was filmed and are in the care of a local shelter. So hopefully, their situation continues to improve.

What can you do to help Japan's animals? The International Fund for Animal Welfare is leading that effort. You can donate to the IFAW here.
