Puppy love saves the day for an injured pup. DHA Photo / Murat ÇağlarWhile a puppy lied injured on an eastern Turkish highway after being hit by a car, her loyal canine companion came to her side and did not leave until someone took her to a veterinary.
As it happens quite often on Turkish roads, a puppy in trouble in the middle of a highway in the eastern province of Van was struck by a vehicle early in the morning of Dec. 21. Another dog then came to the injured puppy’s side, putting her paws on her head as other cars drove past.
Luckily for the injured pup, Zümeyran Şimşekin, a member of Van’s Human Rights Association, who witnessed the accident, picked her up and took her to the local veterinary.
Her loyal friend can now breathe a “woof!” of relief, because despite the gravity of her wounds at first sight, the vet said the injured puppy was doing well and will soon recover.
