“A dog is the only thing on this earth that loves you more than he loves himself” -Josh Billings
This quote talks a lot about dog loyalty than anything in this world does. Dogs, as we all have known is the most loyal animal and is as they say, ‘mans best friend’. It’s loyalty is known to be more than that of humans.
We are very familiar with Hachiko , the japanese dog who proved his undying loyalty waiting for his master’s return in the same location every single day for 10 years after his master’s death.
India witnesses a story of their own Hachiko, two female pups who moved every onlooker at the site. Since the building crash in Porur must have drawn many people’s attention including alot of rescuers, but there were two beings who were having a faithful watch over the rescue mission.
Since the mishap occurred, they did not take even a little amount of food or water and stood there for 36 hours for their family to be safely rescued. Both the pets were females wherein one puppy is six to seven months old and the other is eight to ten months old.
These two females were not very friendly according to The Blue Cross of India, a renowned NGO in Hyderabad who tried to assist and aid the puppies in the most humane manner. And after a long duration of patience, Daniel and William, members of Blue Cross of India tried to befriend them and managed to rescue the agitated beings. Everyone around seemed too sensitive towards the pets. while, one of the policemen donated money for their welfare while the other one stood close to them, wiped their faces and made them feel loved.
“Their owners may have been poor coolies but there is no question of the love that they had showered upon them. Even if it was sack cloth, comfortable beds were laid out. To appease them we had to gain their trust”, said Dawn Williams, General Manager, Blue Cross of India.
Both of them will be nursed and put up for adoption by The Blue Cross of India, hoping to find a lovable home. Such disasters not only cause trauma to the people, but also to these faithful animals.
The Blue Cross of India is an organisation that aims at taking care of animals which was established by Sundaram in 1959 in Chennai. It takes care of animals and has centres like hospitals, shelters, ambulance services and animal birth control (ABC) centers. They are doing the best to save animals and keep them away from any sort of miseries.
Dogs forever remain a symbol of extreme loyalty and a reminder of the lengths one can go to stay devoted to a friend. Thy are truly inspirational and such stories prove the endless love they can have for their masters.
