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.
