Peru: dogs refuse to abandon dead owner in Huancayo

Three dogs in Huancayo showed intense loyalty towards their owner yesterday, in the city of Huancayo, surprising local residents.
According to El Comercio, the dogs’ owner was a well-known homeless man, who died after tripping on a sidewalk and hitting his head.
Eyewitnesses said the three dogs refused to abandon the body, and had to be pulled away by local authorities.
As the body was being taken to a local hospital in a police truck, the three dogs attempted to climb into the back. They began to bark and chase after the vehicle as it drove away, refusing to leave their master.

Thank you NY for proving my point. How else would I see it when one is afraid to walk around some areas for fer of being bitten by a mad dog? Shoot them and everyone would be better off including the dogs who are suffering.

First off "Rodney and Dorris," more dogs do not mean more rabies, but I am not surprised you could only see things that way, and these are more social issues Peru needs to work on, yes another social issue. Aries1990, you mean faithful, not unfaithful. Peru should worry about matters that are important such as, the amount of homeless people that are on its streets, the people in certain rural areas which live in extreme poverty, and yes its animals such as these dogs, which is much more important than some soccer match in trying to get into the world cup or some dope-head soccer player. After it takes care of its social issues and the amount of fraud that the nation endures with its crooked working class, then it could think about joining the NYSE. THANK YOU!

It is assumed that the old man was taking care of the dogs, could it be it was the other way around. Because they seem to have a depth of character maybe they will be better off than the rest of us. Perhaps they are not looking for a hand out.

Does anybody know what happened to the dogs? I hope a rescue org will take them in & find them a good home. Preferably all together. Breaks my heart

Very sad, and what is more sad is these three devoted canines will be left on the streets to fend for themselves just like the thousands of others in Peru. Hopefully the family will find them!!!
