28-year-old Jesus Hueche from Buenos Aires, Argentina was pruning a tree in his yard one day, when suddenly he lost his footing and fell hard to the ground, slamming his head into the concrete pavement.
Fortunately, his neighbors happened to witness the event and immediately called for help.
First Responder—Tony The Dog
Jesus was temporarily knocked unconscious. When he awoke, he found his dog Tony worriedly hugging his chest, as he lay on the ground waiting for rescuers to arrive.
The entire time, Tony stayed with him, guarding his safety by literally resting his body on top of Jesus and barking at anyone who came near. The scene was an act of devotion and loyalty that would be impossible to mistake. It was a beautiful moment captured in a photo by an onlooker.
A Scary But Touching Moment
Those who knew Tony and Jesus well were particularly touched.
Tony had been just a lost pooch wondering the streets until Jesus found him and took him in as his own. The two were inseparable long before the accident.
“He goes everywhere with me,” Jesus said.
Love Can Be Stubborn
When rescue personnel arrived, they had to convince the dog they were there to help. Finally, they were able to fit Jesus with a brace and load the man into the back of the ambulance.
Tony even attempted to jump on board and ride with his best friend, but unfortunately, it was not allowed.
A Happy Reunion
Jesus was happy to learn at the hospital that his skull had only minor trauma, and he was released to go home later that day. We can only imagine Tony’s reaction when Jesus walked through the door once he was safely home once again.
If there were ever any doubt about how Tony felt about his human companion, they were all laid to rest on that day.
