This is why dogs are called ‘man’s best friend’

20 May 2016 07:20 pm - 7     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Another loyal dog that was looking for its owners was captured by cameras at the landslide site in Samassarakanda hill in Aranayake.

In video footage, the dog was barking in a grieved voice and for its owner’s family members.
However, our reporters said later, the dog was able to recognize its owners who were re-located at a camp in Aranayake.

Another emotional story about a loyal dog that appeared to be looking for its master after the deadly landslide in Samassarakanda hill in Aranayake went viral on the Internet yesterday. It was later reported that the dog had finally found its master at a temporarily built hut in Aranayake.

These two incidents demonstrate why dogs are such loyal companions to humans.


The last scene of the video shows the overjoyed dog running towards its master on recognizing him.

    Good and timely reporting DM. These are the very same dogs the Minister of Local Government and Provincial Councils is planing to kill. I am waiting for the next elections. Vote for the "Red Brothers". The only way we can save our society.

    Time for a all-encompassing and humane animal rights bill.

    It shows how grateful these animals (Dogs, Cats etc..) to their owner's. Good lesson for everyone.

    Good lesson to be learnt by the so-called SriLanka humans.

    We should learn a lesson from these faithful animals. They too are God's creation.
