Even more than their own kind, our dogs love us and view us as family. Remember Hachiko, the Akita that waited for his owner at the train station for ten years after his owner died? In Nafpaktos, Greece, a dog’s loyalty melted hearts in a similar incident. For his love and loyalty to his master, he is now known as ‘Greek Hachiko.’ Haris, the dog’s owner, was killed when he was struck by a cement mixer. For more than a year, the upset pet returns to the place of the occurrence.
Even when people have tried to adopt the dog, it always returns to the wayside. So, at the crash site, residents made him a tiny cage, stored a blanket for it to be warm, and provided it with food and drink on a daily basis.
The dog spends the entire year in the kennel, only venturing out into the bushes when it is extremely hot. Locals have given the dog the name “Greek Hachiko,” after the famous Japanese dog who waited for his master at the train station in Tokyo for ten years after his owner died in 1925.
Our furry friends never fail to inspire us with their devotion and loyalty; this Greek Hachiko is just as faithful as the original, and this story has brightened our day.
