‘Grieving’ Dog Refused To Leave Dead Mate

A heartbreaking photo of a male pit bull refusing to leave the side of a female pit bull that lay dead on the side of a Phoenix road is making the rounds on Facebook.

According to Fox’s Phoenix affiliate, the female pit bull appeared to have been struck by a car on Friday. The male pit bull stayed by her side for more than 14 hours.

“The male pit bull wouldn’t leave her, so a nearby business set out food and water,” Fox 10 reported. “He stayed with her nuzzling her and lying nearby until the city came to remove her Saturday morning.” The dogs did not have owner tags when they were found.


“We picked up this other dog and took him to our East Valley shelter,” Rodrigo Silva, an animal control official, told the station. “Right now it doesn’t look like he has any behavioral or health problems.” Silva added that the dog is “a little withdrawn and appears to be very sad… If he continues to show these signs of withdrawal we will place him in a recovery home that can help him with his grieving,” Silva told the Daily Mail.

Animal Control arrived at the scene 14 hours after this incident. Do you think they should have arrived earlier?
