A dog imitates his injured owner and goes viral in an extraordinary display of compassion and sympathy. After the owner shared the touching scene on social media, the two became well-known. What appeared to be a cause for concern for the man, however, turned out to be nothing more than a show of support from the dog.
After suffering an ankle injury, Russell Jones of London, England, was forced to use crutches. When the owner took his 8-year-old lurcher Billy for a walk, though, he noticed something odd. All of a sudden, the dog began to limp. Jones was concerned and rushed him to the veterinarian to find out what had happened to his dog.
Billy’s worried owner spent roughly £300 ($400) on scans and X-rays, only to discover that his dog was copying him out of sympathy. And every time they went for a stroll together, the lovely Billy, like his human companion, was limping. Later that week, Jones’s wife Michelle spotted the lurcher dashing around the backyard and caught him red-handed. “He walked in regularly, and they claimed they couldn’t find anything wrong with him when he came out,” Jones added. “It cost me £300 in vet fees and X-rays, yet there was nothing wrong with her except pity.” “I adore him.”
The touching video of Jones with his dog copying him went popular on social media, garnering a lot of attention from people all around the world. “He’s a clone of you.” That’s fantastic! “Though I sympathize with your vet bill,” one individual wrote. “He’s come out in sympathy with you!” one person commented. “Wishing you both a speedy recovery.”
