A Tale Of Loyalty: Stray Dog Stays By Injured Pregnant Friend’s Side

In a heart-touching display of loyalty and friendship, a tragic yet touching incident unfolded near a highway involving two stray dogs. One of them was a pregnant dog who suffered a serious injury, but a stray dog stood by her side, steadfastly refusing to leave her alone in her time of need.

The whole story started when a German shepherd dog named Marley was hit by a car in Muscoy, California, leaving her unable to move. Her best companion, Murphy, didn’t leave her side and remained there for hours. Both of them waited for so long as traffic zipped by, but no one arrived to help them. After several hours, a vehicle pulled over to check on them and immediately informed Dream Fetchers: Project Rescue.
