If you had to choose one word to describe a dog, what would it be? There is a pretty good chance you said ‘loyal.’ But dogs are not only loyal to their handler or family
. Oftentimes you will find a pair of dogs so bonded that nothing can cause their loyalty to waver.Not even impending death.And that is why this magnificent white dog
spent hours waiting by the side of the road with his fatally injured compatriot, guarding him from the oncoming traffic. If it weren’t for Samuel Flores and this powerful photograph, this dog would likely still be waiting there.

Julie Fennel, a local animal advocate, saw the message and made a plea to her network that someone go down there to rescue these two endangered dogs.Another advocate, Jesse Faiferlick, was closer to the scene and rushed over. When she got there, the powerful white dog began to bark and posture. Once Jesse made it known that she was there to help, he quickly changed his tune, giving her his large paw and showing that he was grateful for the aid.
