Heroic Doggie Won’t Leave Injured Pal in Earthquake Debris

Among the stories of tremendous human kindnesses and heroism in the wake of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami comes the story of a loyal dog and his injured friend. From Kenn Sakurai, president of Butch Japan, an organization that helps import safe dog and cat food to the country and is assisting in animal rescue efforts:

”This is what it’s like when we could find the dogs at the actual disaster area. The white has gotten weak but the brown one is not allowing to get closer. The TV crew shot this. We have already got these dog. But it too two hours to take them to the closest shelter. The guys who had done that had the bigger plastic cage on the back of the bike. Having such weight on the back is risky for going the way with no road … Those two dogs are rescued. The one which came close to the camera is in the better condition. The other white, gray and black was weak. So it is in the vet clinic in Ibaraki Prefectre. The other dog is in the shelter of the same area. But please know that those two are just the tip of the iceberg. There are more and we need help.”

And there’s video, too.
