We all like to think that our best canine friend would stick next to us during a dire time of need, but we don’t commonly think about our pet’s loyalty to each other. This video reminds us how undiscriminating dogs can be as a scared, shivering dog remains by the side of his wounded canine companion. Below you can read an English translation of the video.

We are in Arahama area. Looks like there is a dog. There is a dog. He looks tired and dirty. He must have been caught in the tsunami. He looks very dirty.

He has a collar. He must be someone's pet. He has a silver collar. He is shaking. He seems very afraid.

Oh, there is another dog. I wonder if he is dead.

Where?

Right there. There is another dog right next to the one sitting down. He is not moving. I wonder. I wonder if he is alright.

The dog is protecting him.

Yes. He is protecting the dog. That is why he did not want us to approach them. He was trying to keep us at bay.
I can't watch this. This is a very difficult to watch.

Oh. Look. He is moving. He is alive. I am so happy to see that he is alive.

Yes! Yes! He is alive.

He looks to be weakened. We need to them to be rescued soon. We really want them rescued soon.

Oh good. He's getting up.

It is amazing how they survived the tremendous earthquake and tsunami. It's just amazing that they survived through this all.

The dog’s loyalty paid off. Because of the attention brought by the dog’s Lassie-like actions, both animals were rescued and the severely wounded dog is being treated for his injuries.
