If there are still any doubts regarding dogs’ loyalty, this remarkable story proves, once again what these creatures are capable of. A group of volunteers from an animal rescue in Uzhgorod, Ukraine have witnessed some touching scenes. For at least a couple of days, a loyal dog kept guarding and taking care of his furry fella.

Apparently, the dog got somehow injured (most likely hit by a train) and got stuck on the train tracks. Unable to move, the poor doggie’s fate seamed to be sealed, but her loyal friend never left her side. More than that, he proved brave enough to protect her, by keeping her head down when the trains were passing. As the things weren’t bad enough already, the extremely low temperatures made them extremely difficult.

The heartwarming story was shared on Facebook by Denis Malafeyev, one of the rescue team. “When we arrived, it turned out that one of the dogs, the female, was injured and couldn’t move,” Denis wrote in a Facebook post. “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,” the rescuer wrote!

Thankfully both dogs have been rescued and then taken to a local shelter where they received medical care. Later the rescuers found the two dogs named Panda and Lucy, actually got lost. So after Lucy got better, they both reunited with the owner!
