This Dog Spends 12 Hours Every Day Looking Towards The Station, Proves We Do Not Deserve Dogs

People all over the world have fallen in love with a remarkably loyal dog, who waits outside a station every day for his owner to come home from work.

This beautiful golden-brown dog is named Xiongxiong, which means ‘bear’ in Chinese. Xiongxiong is 15 years old and has been with his owner Mr. Chen for 8 years. When Mr. Chen leaves home early in the morning, the faithful canine follows him to the metro station and stays there for around 12 hours until his owner comes back from work. One resident told Chongqing Evening News   that “His eyes were always looking towards the side of the station. Even if it’s raining he’s still there”.

The dog attracts a lot of attention from passersby, however, he doesn’t show much interest in them and doesn’t take any food from strangers. As soon as Mr. Chen emerges from his train, the four-legged buddy cheerfully greets him and leads him back home. “He is always happy when he sees me, which makes me very happy too. Xiongxiong always makes me less tired from work” Mr. Chen said.

People began to compare this story to that of a dog named Hachiko who patiently waited for his owner at Tokyo’s Shibuya Station every day, even after his owner died.

Scroll below to see this beautiful friendship.
