A dog whose sister had apparently died on the side of the road, refused to leave his sibling behind when authorities came to his rescue on Friday in Kingsville, Texas.
“A call came in for a deceased dog this morning. This was the scene our Animal Control Officers drove up to. This boy wasn’t going to let anyone mess with his sister. Our ACOs had a hard time convincing him everything was going to be alright and they were there to help him. This call was one of the most heart wrenching for our staff, but we thought we’d share some behind the scene images of situations they are faced with on a regular basis. Staff has decided to name the survivor “Guardian,” the Kingsville Kleberg Health Department Animal Control & Care Center posted on their Facebook page.
In the “heart wrenching” incident, officers arrived at the scene and found the Catahoula pup protecting the lifeless body of another dog, and he had no intentions of letting anyone touch her. It took a lot of convincing to remove the deceased dog and safely transport the survivor to the shelter for care.
The 27-pound dog has been named “Guardian” and is believed to be between six months and one year of age.
“Guardian is now at our facility. He will be held on stray hold for the required 4 days. We have already scheduled an adoption at 8:00 am on the day he becomes available (May 29th).
He’s still a little confused about what happened, but at least he is now in a safe place with fresh cool water and belly full of food.
It is not known how Guardian’s sister died Animal control officers have already arranged for the dog’s adoption should his owner fail to show up.
