A stray dog stands guard over the body of his dead mate and in a moving display of devotion continues to lick her head in a bid to revive her.

These heartbreaking pictures taken in Zhangzhou, in China’s Fujian Province, show the animal carefully nudging the female dog after she was hit and killed by a car.

After he fails to wake her, the male refuses to leave and stays within feet of his mate for six hours.

The male was seen repeatedly licking the face of dead dog and keeping a watchful eye on her as he dodged the oncoming traffic. But he never strayed more than a short distance from her side.

When he got tired the dog lay down next to her as he kept up his vigil for hours.

 

Xiao Wu, a butcher on the street, said: ‘He stayed beside her the whole day, keeping licking her and pushing her, trying to wake her up. It’s very touching.’

Xiao said after the accident he saw the male dog running around and trying to ‘hug’ the female dog with his forelegs.

The butcher added: ‘Then he pushed her with his head, and licked her face. I even saw tears’

According to Xiao the female dog was a stray he had recently started to feed. Then a week ago the male dog turned up.

He said: ‘Then I realised she had a boyfriend. They were together all the time, playing and in love.’

Mourning: Witnesses said he only left her side to move out of the way of oncoming traffic
