Loyal Dog Ran Away From Home To His Dead Master’s Grave, Has Stayed By Its Side For Six Years
World

A faithful German shepherd has refused to leave its owner’s side, even six years after his death. The dog, named Captain, ran away from home after the death of his master, Argentinian Miguel Guzman in 2006.

When Mr. Guzman’s family went to pay their respects after his death, they found the loyal dog sitting by his grave.

Guzman had purchased Captain for his son in 2005, and suddenly died in March of the next year.

When the family returned home from the funeral, the dog was gone.

“We searched for him but he had vanished,” said Guzman’s widow, Veronica. “We thought he must have got run over and died.

“The following Sunday we went to the cemetery and Damian recognised his pet. Capitan came up to us, barking and wailing, as if he were crying.

“We had never taken him to the cemetery so it is a mystery how he managed to find the place.

“We went back the next Sunday, and he was there again. This time, he followed us home and spent a bit of time with us, but then went back to the cemetery before it started getting dark.

“I don’t think he wanted to leave Miguel on his own at night.”

The cemetery’s director Hector Baccega remembers the day he first saw the dog.

“He turned up here one day, all on his own, and started wandering all around the cemetery until he eventually found the tomb of his master.

“During the day he sometimes has a walk around the cemetery, but always rushes back to the grave. And every day, at six o’clock sharp, he lies down on top of the grave stays there all night.”

The cemetery staff now feeds and takescare of Captain.
