The saying dogs are man’s best friend is commonly heard for centuries and this next heartwarming incident is proof of just that.
A stray dog is winning hearts around the globe after viral footage showed him disrupting a live street performance, unknowingly, to comfort an actor who pretended like he was injured.
The incident took place in Turkey where tourists are frequently shown short skits in the name of live street performances. They see these as common sources of entertainment and enjoy how skilled these actors are in terms of playing their roles.
The actors are always dressed up to suit the position and it’s hard to determine if they’re really acting or performing the stunts live.
And this was best demonstrated when one stray dog found it hard to see the injured actor lying flat on the floor, with no one to assist him.
Out of nowhere, the four-legged furry friends went straight to the injured actor’s side and started to console him.
He gave out some crying sounds and quickly embraced the actor, who found it hard to remain still in his position because of how much love and affection he was getting from the animal, who assumed he was injured for real.
As you can imagine, the incident won the hearts of plenty of people. They found the dog to be the most caring species they’d ever come across. And it didn’t take long for him to go viral online too because of how sentimental he got during the performance.
“He really thought I was injured. I could feel his sadness when he hugged me”- the actor explained after the staged act was over.
Luckily, for so many viewers, the act was caught on film. And now, it’s being shared across the board with one caption: Dogs are truly man’s best friend. Do you agree?
