Hachiko – a true loyal friend

Hachikō a true life story of the dog loyalty to his master. This dog was meeting his master after work every day and was waiting for him at the same time at the station for many years after his owner’s death.

Hachikō died on March 8, 1935, and was found on a street in Shibuya. In March 2011, scientists settled the cause of death of Hachikō: the dog had terminal cancer and a filaria infection.
And even with such a disease and pain that he had, he never missed even one day until his last breath.
