A loyal dog has been filmed pawing at its dead friend’s body before whimpering over it after it had been hit by a car.
The heartbreaking moment was captured in the city of Huancayo in Peru and posted to animal association Sueno Compartido.
In the clip, the pooch can be seen pawing at his pal as it lies motionless on the pavement.
It seems to struggle to come to terms with what has happened and tries to wake its friend.
A woman can be heard saying “poor little dog” as the moment unfolds.
The video was shared with the message: “It’s useless wanting to do something against the death that is there, not knowing how to comfort its mate that is crying about it (the dead dog), that is trying to reanimate it and with barks and tears it must be looking for help too.
