10 Most Loyal Dogs
1The dog who lead rescuers to owner's fatal accident scene
Tragically, Travers died at the scene.
2The dog that ran away from home to find his dead master's grave - and has stayed by its side for six years
Since then the grieving dog has rarely left the spot at the cemetery in the town of Villa Carlos Paz, in central Argentina. Mr. Guzman bought Capitan as a present for his 13-year-old son Damian in 2005.
Although the dog often leaves the cemetery to spend a short period of time with his family, he always returns to the gravesite before dark.
3The dog who guarded a two-year-old who went missing in the Australian bush for fourteen hours
Dante's mother Bianca Chapman raised the alarm after the pair disappeared from her front garden. They were eventually discovered when two police officers heard a loud cry in knee-high scrub several meters from the track.
4The dog that stayed by dead owner for twelve hours after hit and run
A passer-by spotted the man's contorted bike in a slightly lowered area by the side of the road, along with his lifeless body and the uninjured dog. A crate which the man had fixed to the bike for carrying his mutt lay strewn on the ground.
His body had been there anywhere between eight and 12 hours, and his heartbroken pooch, a Cairn terrier mix similar to Toto in The Wizard of Oz, had stayed by his side the entire time.
5The dog who prevented owner from committing suicide
6The dog who attends mass every day at church where owner's funeral was held
Mrs. Lochi adopted several strays she found but friends said she developed a particularly close affection for Tommy and would walk to church with him from her home every day, where the priest would allow him to sit patiently by her feet. Following her death at San Donaci near Brindisi, a funeral service was held at which Tommy joined mourners, and since then he has been a regular at the church arriving on time when the bells ring out to mark the start of services.
7The dog who stood guard over dead friend's body in China
Xiao Wu, a local butcher, said that he had often seen the two stray dogs playing together.
8The loyal dog who waited 30 minutes for master to be rescued from freezing river
Nearby hunters witnessed the accident and called 911. But while they waited for help, the man's dog refused to leave the scene. Like a worried relative in the waiting room, the dog paced back and forth, trying to reach the man, who repeatedly waved the dog off, fearing for its safety.
9The husky who tracked owner to hospital
A hospital employee found the dog on the street outside of building where Dolan was being treated. The nurse called the number on Zander's collar which turned out to be Dolan's cell phone number; he answered the phone from his hospital bed. Dolan's wife later came over and retrieved Zander. The dedicated dog even made a second trip to the hospital later.
10The guide dog who come back to save his owner during the WTC attack
Dorado was swept downstairs by the mass of evacuating people, but a few minutes later Rivera felt the dog nuzzling his legs — Dorado had come right back to his side. Dorado and a co-worker then helped Rivera climb down 70 flights of stairs, which took nearly an hour. Soon after they escaped the tower, the building collapsed, and Rivera says he owes his life to his faithful dog.
