Hachiko From China: A Loyal Dog Waited 80 Days For Its Master At The Place Where She’d Passed Away
It is hard to imagine a creature more loyal than a dog. These animals have earned the reputation of man’s best friend by countless acts of selflessness and true devotion to humans. There probably isn’t a person who hasn’t heard of a dog named Hachiko. Every day, this dog would accompany its owner to the railway station, and after the man suddenly passed away at work, Hachiko continued to make the journey to the station for 9 (!) years.
Dogs are very attached to their owners. Their love is boundless! For example, not so long ago, a dog traveled 3,000 miles to reunite with her owner.
And recently, a similarly moving story has caused a real stir on the web.
In Hohhot, the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region (China), a dog has been spotted on the road near a bridge. It would patiently sit and wait, occasionally walking around exploring the area. Locals report that the dog has been sitting in that place since August, 21 (which is already 3 months!) when a car accident took the life of its master.

Eyewitnesses report that they were trying to feed the dog, but it wasn’t eager to make contact. When the dog sees people, it runs away, and returns to its spot when there is no one near.
The video was filmed on November 10, 80 days after the death of the owner.
Locals are concerned about the health of the unfortunate dog. Besides undernutrition, it is constantly in a very dangerous area - near the road with heavy traffic.
