Loyal Siberian dog still waits for owner’s return at roadside where he died a year ago in Siberia


An abandoned dog whose owner was killed in
a car crash is so loyal he has refused to leave the spot where his human died for over
a year. The loyal pooch waits in the hope that his owner will return after he was killed
in a crash in Siberia in 2014. The loyal animal, thought to be a mongrel, was left behind after
the car crash in the autumn when people first started noticing it standing beside the road,
and several people tried to catch it. When it refused to be captured, kind animal lovers
started feeding the dog, and they even put a kennel beside the road. Unfortunately, it
was too near to the road and it was destroyed by a truck, although a new one was built for
the dog a few weeks later in the village of Berkut, near the town of Yalutorovsk in south-central
Russia’s Tyumen Oblast region. And even after that, the animal still came
back to the roadside and refused to be captured, and continues to wait for its owner. Animal
activist Anastasia Selina said: “We haven’t been able to get anywhere near the animal,
it only seems to want to get to its previous owner and as far as we know they didn’t survive
the car accident. “It doesn’t trust anyone else, and will not even let anybody even stroke
it. We advise people not to disturb it, because we are worried it might run under a car if
it gets scared.” Despite the cold weather this year, the dog has survived a second Siberian
winter, thanks to motorists throwing food out of the window, and the campaign has now
been started to find a home for the dog and to capture him once and for all. The animal
has been called the “Siberian Hachiko” – named after the Japanese Akita dog who is remembered
for his remarkable loyalty to his owner. The famous Japanese Akita pooch had tugged
at the heartstrings of the nation when he waited at Tokyo’s Shibuya Station for his
owner to return – appearing every day precisely when the train was due at the station. Hachiko
continued to wait for many years until his own death in 1935, never seeming to accept
that his owner was not coming back. The famous statue which was erected in August 1948 is
a popular meeting spot in Japan. The station entrance near this statue is named “Hachiko-guchi”,
meaning “The Hachiko Entrance /Exit”, and is one of Shibuya Station’s five exits. On the
80th anniversary of the death of Hachiko, the famous dog was happily reunited with his
owner, in a bronze statue installed and unveiled on March 8 2015 at the University of Tokyo
where the master once taught. The statue, which depicts Hachiko jumping up to greet
Ueno, who is extending his hand to pat the dog, stands about 1.9 meters high and weighs
about 280 kilograms. It is located near the main gate of the campus for the university’s
Faculty of Agriculture in Tokyo’s Bunkyo Ward.
