A heartbroken dog was caught on video curling up on her late owner’s grave – and refusing to leave.

 Deta was left devastated when her owner passed away in September, which is something that showed when she visited her resting place for the first time.

The little dog, who is now living with her owner’s daughter Theresa Morini, instantly laid beside the grave – which is shared with her 86-year-old owner’s late husband.

However when Mrs Morini, who took Deta to the site in New York to lay a Christmas wreath in November, calls the pet back to the car, she refuses to budge.

In fact, after taking a few steps forward, she runs back to the grave and lays back down.In the video, Theresa is heard being reduced to tears by the little dog’s stand.

She said: ‘Oh my god. It’s making me cry. Deta! Deta! Deta!’ According to Mrs Morini, her husband eventually had to scoop Deta up and carry her back to the car.

Posting online, she said: ‘Deta belonged to my mother for five years and I inherited Deta on my mothers’ death. My mother was 86 when she passed and rarely left her home.

‘Deta was a constant companion. My husband and I were placing a Christmas wreath on my mother’s grave on November 15. That stone Deta is laying next to belongs to my father and mother. You can still see the fresh dirt on my mothers’ grave.

‘Deta (which means ‘little’ in Slavic) was being so quiet when we arrived, which is so out of character. My husband had to go and carry her from the grave to get her to leave.’
