It is really heartbreaking: a dog weeps, pushes and softly barks at his female buddy killed by a car. He does his best to revive her. When volunteers from an animal welfar rush to the spot, the dog refuses to get into their car unless they pick up also his dead friend.
Monday, 4. March 2013, short after 9 p.m.
Aanimal welfare organization of Ilioupolis (Eastern Athens) receives a call about a dog killed by a car. Two volunteers rush to the spot to see one of the most tragic pictures of their lives.
A female dog lays dead on the pavement hit by a car.
Next to her, her excited buddy. He weeps and barks softly, jumps around her. He pushes her with his paw, nudges her head with his snout, he licks her. He does everything he can to revive her.
The volunteers write in their Facebook page and in YouTube:
“We tried to collect the body, but the dog would not let us. He kept push her, lick her, nudge her. Then he changed his tactic. He barked at her and tried to pull her. When he saw that she wouldn’t react, he laid in sorrow next to her and started weeping.
He wouldn’t come to our car, if we wouldn’t take his friend as well.
We took a bag from a shop and finally we picked up both.
The boy will spend the night in the car of a volunteer. What will happen tomorrow, we don’t know.
Can somebody foster him?
