Great Pyrenees Solemnly Watches Over Friend Involved In Terrible Accident

Over the weekend, a photo was taken in Dallas showing a Great Pyrenees staying by his friend's side who died by what appears to be a car hit. Animal advocate Julie Fennell said, "He was just kind of sitting guard, like a statue, just sitting there watching over his friend's body."

It is believed that the Great Pyrenees dragged his friend off of the road. Drivers noticed the dog and called the local animal shelter. A volunteer, Jessy Fairferlick, rushed to the scene to help the dog until Fennell arrived to help.

Fennell went on to say "He's obviously being loyal to a friend who passed away and he's mourning. It really looks like (the other dog) was hit in the road, you can see the blood in the road, and it looks like he dragged her up onto the grass out of the road." Fennell added, "Whether it was his companion in his yard at home or whether they met up as strays, but something made him stay by her side."

The dog was found across the street from Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery and is currently in the care of Dallas Animal Services. It is unclear whether he was a stray or was lost. He did not have a collar nor was he microchipped.

If an owner does not come forward in 72 hours, he will be transferred to SPIN rescue, a group focused on the rescue of Great Pyrenees dogs.

This dog's loyalty to his friend is heartbreaking.
