This Dog Was Too Injured To Move From A Moving Train, But His Brave Friend Came To Rescue Him

When this dog’s canine friend got injured and stranded on the tracks, he stayed with her under the passing trains for two days, saving the pooch from certain death. A group of animal rescuers from Uzhgorod, Ukraine, received a call saying two dogs were spotted on the railway track. Denis Malafeyev, who shared the touching story on Facebook, wrote: “When we arrived, it turned out that one of the dogs, the female, was injured and couldn’t move.” All this time, the healthy canine was trying to protect her. “The male dog heard the sound of the approaching train, came close to the female dog and laid down next to her… Both of them pushed their heads towards the ground, and let the train pass”.

Denis Malafeyev said the story made him emotional: “The male dog was doing this for two days in a row. Think about it. He was keeping her warm.”

Turned out the protective dog is named Panda, while his female friend is Lucy. The man was glad to inform the canines were given medical assistance and returned to their original owners, where they are safe and sound.

Both dogs would bend their heads down every time a train was passing right above them

For more than two days the healthy canine was there in the cold trying to protect her

I will ask the same question that I ask anytime I see a video of something horrific happening: "WHY THE HELL ARE YOU TAKING A @#$!ING VIDEO, INSTEAD OF HELPING?!?"

I think it was filmed by the first animal rescuer on the scene. Perhaps he needed more help and/or equipment to safely move her away (possible internal injuries etc) and while he was waiting a train passed by. Just a guess though
