QUANZHOU, China (TRP) – It’s the heart-wrenching scene that unraveled after a puppy was struck and killed by a moving vehicle and her friend stood by her side, refusing to abandon her.
The grieving pup reportedly patted, barked and licked the lifeless body as it laid in the middle of the street. To avoid another incident, a passer-by dragged the body to the side of the road, where the mourning canine followed it.
According to locals, the two puppies were strays who would consistently wander the streets together, searching for food and begging for scraps. One report quoted a resident about the incident:
One unnamed resident in Quanzhou said: ‘They are together all the time.
‘Usually it’s the wife that runs out first followed by the husband.
‘It was horrible and unpleasant to see that the dog didn’t make it, and touching that her partner didn’t seem to want to leave her behind.’
The body of the dead dog was eventually removed by a sanitation worker.
