Witnesses in Pixian County, southwest China’s Sichuan Province, reported they observed two dogs, a grey one and a brown one, lying in the middle of the roadway.
The brown puppy was shielding the body of the grey one from getting hit by any passing automobiles by springing up and barking whenever one went near.
They stayed in the same position for many days until a person took them to safety along the side of the road.
Another member of the public then dug a hole to bury the grey dog. Even then, its sibling rushed into the hole too reluctant to leave its partner.
Finally, the brown dog was retrieved by employees from a nearby animal protection shelter where it is being cared for.
