A stray dog stood guard over the body for his dead canine companion after she was hit and killed by a car in China, the Daily Mail reported.

Photos show the stray licking and nuzzling his pal’s face, then apparently remaining by her side in the middle of the road when she wouldn’t get up.

Xiao Wu, a local butcher, said he’d recently taken to feeding the dogs and would see them playing together.

“He stayed beside her the whole day, keeping licking her and pushing her, trying to wake her up. It’s very touching,” he said.
