Loyal sheepdog tried to protect his herd as they left for slaughter

Spread the love

In one of the most heartbreaking events, a loyal sheepdog tried to protect his herd of sheep as the doomed flock were loaded into a truck and left for their journey to the slaughterhouse. The dog, named Pique, ran for miles along AP7 highway near Barcelona, Spain.

According to  RTNews, Pique was rescued by local police before he could have been hit and killed by a vehicle while running down the busy highway. Sadly, the dog’s flock continued on their last journey.

“…animals never cease to surprise us and use this beautiful dog why we should make an effort to improve their lives,” the Guardia Municipal de Fogars de las Servei posted on their Facebook page. “They teach us many things, some of these things call it instinct. But, in fact, they are qualities that sometimes make our own. If they were humans we would be talking about values.”

More proof that our loyal dogs have big hearts filled with love.

  1. If only MORE PEOPLE displayed the love, dedication and loyalty that animals do! The world would be a very different place!

  2. I am glad that this dog was saved. I do feel sad for his flock….. I wonder why the rancher didn’t secure this dog (or distract him with other sheep)……
