An incredibly dedicated dog refused to leave his master’s side, even when the man passed away six years ago. Since his owner’s death, Captain has refused to leave the man’s grave.
Captain, a German shepherd, ran away from home shortly after his owner, Miguel Guzman, died in 2003, reports The Daily Mail. When the family went to pay their respects a week later, they fount the heartbroken dog sitting by his owner’s grave, wailing in mourning.
Hector Baccega, the cemetery’s director, stated that he and his staff have started to feed and take care of Captain. Baccega recalled that:
“He turned up here one day, all on his own, and started wandering all around the cemetery until he eventually found the tomb of his master. During the day he sometimes has a walk around the cemetery, but always rushes back to the grave. And every day, at six o’clock sharp, he lies down on top of the grave, stays there all night.”
