Based on the true story of an incredibly loyal and heartbroken Japanese Akita who waited for his owner at Tokyo’s Shibuya train station every day for nine years after his death, the legendary movie “Hachi: A Dog’s Tale” is the one movie that is guaranteed to make you cry uncontrollably like nobody’s business. Hachiko has been represented in several forms throughout popular culture all over the globe, including literature, films, monuments, and a variety of other mediums. Hachiko is a symbol of incredible commitment and faithfulness. The heartbreakingly sad tale of a beautiful friendship between a man and his devoted dog is being retold 94 years later in Greece, where this devoted family dog hasn’t moved an inch from the spot where his owner met his tragic fate 18 months ago. This story is a repeat of a similar tragedy that occurred in Greece in 1924.

Grab a tissue, because this will demonstrate, once again, that we don’t deserve the wonderful pets that we have. And if you think that you are a genuinely devoted and kind buddy, this companion animal for the home will teach you more than your emotions are capable of taking in.

According to Nafpaktia News, the owner of the dog was a guy named Haris who was 40 years old. Haris passed away on November 9, 2017, after being involved in an accident with a cement mixer on the Old Ring Road that leads to the River Evinos. The news sent shockwaves through the neighborhood since his brother had died in an incident quite similar to this one just a few short years before.

It is a wonder how this modern-day Hachiko made it to the precise site where the deadly collision occurred, which is seven-and-a-half miles away from his house in Nafpaktos, yet he refuses to budge from his owner’s roadside shrine even though he is so close to the scene of the accident. He has been mourning in the same location for almost a year and a half, and he keeps returning to it every time, despite the fruitless attempts of townspeople to remove him off the road and provide him a loving family to care for him instead.

People in the neighborhood have given up attempting to persuade the dog to leave his new home because they were moved by the canine’s dogged determination to remain by the side of his human closest buddy even after the latter passed away. Instead, they made the decision to improve his quality of life by constructing a small house for him to live in by the side of the road, creating a shrine dedicated to his human companion, and providing him with food and water on a consistent basis while he patiently stares off into the distance, waiting for his master to return. In homage to the well-known Akita, the devoted companion animal came to be known as the “Greek Hachiko.”

There are many heartbreaking tales that demonstrate the unwavering devotion and affection that dogs possess. We just reported about a dog in Brazil that had pursued an ambulance that was transporting his owner who had been stabbed, and then waited at the door to the hospital for four months after his owner had passed away. Each tale not only leaves a lasting impression on us, but also demonstrates that dogs are, in fact, among man’s closest companions, and that we have no other option than to provide them our love and affection in return.
