Dog Stayed beside his Dead Dog friend
Here is a picture of a male pit bull that looks sad. It refused to leave the female pit bull that lay dead on the side of a road. Truly a heartbreaking photo circulating Facebook.
The female pit bull appeared to have been hit by a car and the male pit bull stayed by her side.
"The male pit bull wouldn't leave her, so a nearby business set out food and water," Fox 10 reported. "He stayed with her nuzzling her and lying nearby until the city came to remove her Saturday morning."
The dogs did not have owner tags when they were found.
"We picked up this other dog and took him to our East Valley shelter," Rodrigo Silva, an animal control official, told the station. "Right now it doesn't look like he has any behavioral or health problems."
"a little withdrawn and appears to be very sad."
"If he continues to show these signs of withdrawal we will place him in a recovery home that can help him with his grieving,"
"I am so pissed about this," Karyn Aspan, who saw the photo on Facebook, wrote on her wall. "Animal control responded 14.5 hours later."
