Devastated by the death of his sister, run over by a car on a road, a dog refused to follow the rescuers. Now it is in the hands of specialists.
It was a heartbreaking incident that happened in Texas. Friday, May 22 in the morning, animal control officers from the town of Kingsville were called to the side of a road. According to the Kingsville Kleberg Health Department Animal Control & Care Center, someone told them where the body of a deceased dog was. Upon arrival, the police found a Catahoula Leopard dog protecting the lifeless body of another bitch. "This animal did not want to let anyone play with its sister. Our agents had trouble convincing him that everything was going to be fine and that they were there to help him"wrote a staff member from the animal center on Facebook, adding that the call "has been one of the most heartbreaking for our staff".
The 12-kilo puppy – who rescuers called Guardian, "keeper" in French – is now resting in an animal care center, according to another Facebook post. Settlement officials believe he is about 6 to 12 months old. "He's still a little confused about what happened, but at least he's now in a safe place with cool water and a belly full of food., read an article in the Kingsville Kleberg Health Department Animal Control & Care Center. Since we do not know if it belonged to someone, he will be retained as a stray dog. " Touched by the story and the drama experienced by the dog, the agents of the service that collected it shared images on Facebook.
