Dog Guards His Dead Mate In Middle of Chinese Road! GUESS WHERE! IN ZHANGZOU!!!


Dog Guards His Dead Mate In Middle of Chinese Road


Dog Guards His Dead Mate In Middle of Chinese Road

For six hours, a stray dog stayed near his mate after she was hit by a car in the middle of a traffic-filled road in Zhangzhou, in China’s southeast Fujian province. The dog licked her face and head and nudged at her; when she did not wake, he positioned himself at her side, never venturing too far and dodging cars, says the Daily Mail. Eventually, he lay down at the female’s side.
