A viral video of a loyal dog patiently waiting for his deceased owner to return is making a lot of Chinese netizens shed tears.
The canine was spotted sitting in the middle of a busy downtown road in Hohhot patiently waiting for his owner, who died tragically in a car crash in the same area.
Volunteers from a local charity also tried to pitch in and help the pooch. They are reportedly looking for any relatives of the dead owner; if they are unable, the volunteers would then look for a new home for the loyal dog.
Netizens, meanwhile, couldn’t help but compare the story of this pooch to the ever-famous Japanese dog, Hachiko, who waited for his owner in a train station for more than nine years in 1920.
