Warning: This post contains a video featuring graphic footage of a dead dog.
It’s an amazing, heartbreaking sight: two dogs huddled in the middle of a busy road in freezing temps, one dog with us no more, the other protecting him, mourning him, refusing to leave his side as the cars rumble past throughout the night.
On Dec. 22, on a busy road in Yinchuan, China, one of the dogs had been hit by a car and killed. His friend, dubbed the “Good Samaritan” by the press, curled up next to him. Cars swept past them. The temperature dropped to a freezing eight degrees Fahrenheit. They stayed there all night, according to Sky News.
