On social networks, residents of Lviv are actively discussing the story of the faithful dog, which has already been nicknamed the Lviv Hachiko. And his loyalty is truly amazing and inspiring.
The story began on February 5th. At about 23:00 pm, at a bus stop opposite the monument to Daniil Galitsky on Knyaz Roman Street, ambulances were loaded into a car and taken to the hospital by an unknown man.
The victim fell, broke his head and was seriously injured. The man’s pet, that was walking with the owner, remained on the street. He did not budge and guarded the things of his master.
The representative of the animal protection organization Ustina Boyko said that the dog remained at the scene. A volunteer Evgenia Levit went to her, but the animal did not allow the girl to come to her, obviously waiting for its owner.
Employees of the organization began searching for the owners, but they were unsuccessful. Then the volunteers decided to take the dog from the street. So he ended up in a Lviv animal shelter.
The employees continued to search for the owners, called all the hospitals, but the calls did not give any results.
And on the 7th of February, good news appeared on social networks. Finally, the owners of the Lviv Hachiko were found. Through acquaintances, the volunteers were able to find out the data of the man. It turned out that his name is Alexei.
First, the shelter staff went to the neighbors of the owner of the dog, and then met with his daughter and returned the pet to her. It turned out that in fact, the dog’s nickname is Sirko. Now the dog is at home and is waiting for the return of his beloved owner from the hospital, whom he patiently waited on the street.
