These images show the heart-rendering moment a loyal dog stayed by his friend’s side after being hit by a car.

He tried to wake his companion before realising that he was dead and keeping watch over him in the middle of the road.

Shao Xiuqing captured the scene on Monday morning in Zhejiang, China.

‘The dog was reluctant to leave his friend who was dead,’ said Shao.

‘He had a sad expression and from time to time was making what sounded like a sobbing sound. He kept pushing his companion with his paw like he was trying to wake him up.’

Eventually, the owner arrived at the scene to take the lifeless pet away and apparently, his loyal companion followed.

Some people are sceptical over the emotional capacity of animals. But if you ever needed proof that they do indeed feel deeply connected to other beings, then this is it.
