Dogs would do just about anything for their companions, and when one injured dog got stuck on a railroad track in Uzhgorod, Ukraine, her best friend risked his own life to protect her for two days straight.
While crossing the train tracks, an injured dog named Lucy got stuck on the track, and instead of leaving her behind, best friend Panda stayed behind with her and refused to leave her side. And when trains zoomed by, he would lay down beside her and press her head down so she wouldn’t be killed.
“It’s such a touching story. I got a phone call from a friend who said that there were two dogs lying on the railway track near Tseglovka village for two days,” said rescuer Denis Malafeyev. “When we arrived, it turned out that one of the dogs, the female, was injured and couldn’t move. But the male dog was protecting her from us. I saw a train approaching – and felt sick.”
“The male dog heard the sound of the approaching train, came close to the female dog and laid down next to her. Both of them pushed their heads towards the ground, and let the train pass. The male dog was doing this for two days in a row. Think about it. He was keeping her warm,” Denis said.
“I don’t know what to call this: instinct, love, friendship, loyalty? One thing I know for sure, not all the people would do the same as this,” said Denis, who brought the dogs to get medical treatment and helped locate the dogs’ worried owner.
