Devastating footage has captured a stray dog desperately trying to wake up its dead friend after being hit by a car.
The clearly distressed pooch is seen prodding at the collapsed animal with its paws, on a pavement in Iloilo City, Philippines.
It tries to drag its friend back to its feet but when it gets no response, the sad creature looks around for help.
Mark Vincent Java said he was driving home with his family from a friend’s funeral when he came across the heartbreaking scene.
“We were all in tears while watching the dog as my friend had just died,” he said. “This felt like a double tragedy.
“The way my friend died was very similar. His family desperately tried to wake him up. Maybe the dog felt the same way.”
Mark believes the dog died in a hit-and-run accident by a speeding car, as it happened at night time when the area was pitch-black.
He added that they informed a nearby village official outpost about the dogs, but the loyal pooch did not leave its friend until the car drove away.
Mark said: “The dog stayed with its friend while letting out whimpering sounds even after we left. The village officers said they would help them.”
It comes after another heartbroken dog was filmed digging up the grave of her dead puppy and trying to revive it.
Grieving Bettie tragically lost the young pup but tried to revive it by breastfeeding its lifeless mouth.
Owner Lenny said: "I would try to take the puppy away but she would not let me so I left them there until she was ready to bury it."
