Dog loyally guards his friend who’s injured on train tracks

Dogs are known for their unwavering loyalty to their humans. (We don’t call them “man’s best friend” for nothing, right?) But we must not forget that dogs are, naturally, social animals that live in packs and instinctively take care of their own.

So it’s no surprise that, when one dog was injured on train tracks in Ukraine’s Uzhgorod district, her four-legged friend refused to budge.

Residents of Ukraine’s Uzhgorod district were shocked to discover an injured dog on nearby train tracks. What was most surprising, however, was the dedication of her friend, who patiently and unwaveringly guarded his pal for two days.

Denis Malafeev, who posted the story on Facebook, called his friends after seeing one dog trying to warm the other with his body heat on the snowy tracks. The injured dog had apparently been struck by a train, but her friend would not leave her, despite the danger.


“He kept her warm for two days under the constant threat of danger!” wrote Denis on Facebook.

“I don’t know what to call it: instinct, love, friendship, attachment. I only know this: not every human is capable of this. We should all learn from it!”

Since they were found, the dogs have been adopted, and are named Lucy and Panda.


It wouldn’t have been possible, though, if Denis hadn’t been so vigilant and helpful!


It’s so nice to see such a strong friendship between these sweet animals. Friendship is all about sticking together, through both the good and the bad.
