Loyal pup waits for dead owner for more than 80 days

Video capturing the devoted dog standing guard patiently in the middle of the busy road has been viewed almost six million times, making the pooch an overnight star.

For this canine in Hohhot city, Inner Mongolia state, loyalty knows no bounds, after it was revealed that the dog had been waiting at the spot where its female owner died since August. The dog is always there, rain or shine.

"Drivers often give the little dog bits of food, but when we get out, he goes away", said a taxi driver, according to BBC. However, it always returns to the same spot, the taxi driver told news agency China News.

Video clips of the dog waiting for its owner has attracted the attention of Chinese netizens since the video was posted last Saturday (Nov 10), drawing more than a million views on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Dogs (or animals, in general) amaze us every day because of stories like this and we only hope that the aforementioned loyal friend will find a loving home at the end of the day.

Thousands of people were touched by the dog's devotion after the picture emerged online while some expressed concerns for its welfare.

Despite pathetic feedback, ‘Thugs of Hindostan enters the 100 crore club
Memes to jokes have virtually taken over the Internet after the surprisingly negative response from the critics and audiences. Helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs Of Hindostan is bankrolled by Aditya Chopra under the banners of Yash Raj Films .

'It's so risky for the dog to be lingering on the road, ' one user said.

'I'm in tears!' another said. "Hope the family members of the dog's owner or the relevant authorities can take care of the dog".

China's Pear Video website said the dog has been waiting in the middle of the road for 80 days.

For nearly three months a puppy has been patiently waiting for the return of its owner - on the spot where she was killed.

Daily Mail wrote that both pets had been compared with Hachiko, the famous Akita dog that waited for its owner at Tokyo's Shibuya Station every day in the 1920s.
