These Two Devoted Dogs Loyally Waited For Their Late Owners Even After Their Passing

Dogs are referred to as man’s best friend. They’re loyal to their owners—their best friends—until their death. But what happens if the owner passes away before the dog? In this case, there have been three dogs that remained devoted to their friend, even though the owner is no longer present to take care of them. You might want to grab the tissues.

Living Full Time At The Cemetery

There wasn’t a greater bond between man and dog than Miguel Guzman and his loyal German Shepherd, Capitán. Guzman originally brought the dog home to be his son’s pet, but the German Shepherd took an immediate liking towards Guzman, and the rest was history.

When Guzman unexpectedly passed away without any warning, you can imagine Capitán’s confusion. Where did his best friend go? He visited his owner’s grave every day, practically living at the cemetery full time until his own death.

Waiting For Him To Return

Spot would wait for his friend, Wayne Giroux, to meet on the side of an old country road every day. The dog knew exactly what time to meet Giroux. But one day in 2010, Giroux was killed in a drunk driving accident. Spot kept waiting to meet his friend, but Giroux never returned.


That didn’t stop Spot from waiting at the road every day at the same time, searching for his best friend to return. Luckily, Giroux’s son, Paul, checks in on Spot to make sure the loyal dog is okay. But unfortunately, Paul isn’t who Spot wants to see. Incredibly, Spot isn’t the only devoted dog that’s garnered attention for displaying such behavior.

Standing Vigil For Her Friend

A loyal dog in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, China has remained at the site of his owner’s death since August 21, 2018. The owner died in a car accident on a busy street and the dog has since stood in the middle of the road, only moving to dodge traffic.

“This owner’s relationship with her dog was very deep,” a witness said. “After she was killed, this little dog has just stayed standing guard.”


While it’s unsafe for the dog to be at the road by himself, it doesn’t look like he’s leaving anytime soon. He’s determined to remain at his post— honoring his beloved owner until the day he dies.
