Dog Guards His Girlfriend’s Body After She’s Killed by Car

September 27, 2007

I read this heartbreaking story about a male Chow mix that laid down in the middle of a busy street to keep watch over his companion, a female German shepherd mix, after she was hit and killed by a car in Denver. Whether his actions were based on feelings of loyalty or protection or caring–I think it really demonstrates how complex dogs are.

Because of the outpouring of support and PR for this dog, nicknamed Romeo, it looks like he may get a new lease on life at MaxFund, a no-kill shelter where they can work with him on some of his “issues.” There’s even a woman with Chow experience who really wants to adopt Romeo.

Romeo is a deserving dog with what hopes to be a happy ending.
