Hachiko, The World’s Most Loyal Dog With Amazing Story That Will Break Our Heart

Hachiko’s story dates back to the 1920s, he was a dog known for his loyalty and love to his owner. Every day, he saw his owner off to work and would sit there patiently at the Shibuya train station in central Tokyo until his owner returned from work.
Sadly, his human dad Eizaburo left the world suddenly because of being suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage while at work. After his owner’s passing, the poor dog moved to live with a former gardener of Eizaburo’s family. But throughout the rest of his ten-year-long life, he was as usual sitting by the exit at Shibuya train station waiting for his dear dad.
He kept going to the train every day and sat there for hours, patiently waiting in vain for the return of his beloved dad. And of course, his human dad never showed up. The boy continued to waiting for Eizaburo at the station until he passed peacefully and alone on the street near Shibuya train station in 1935.

He passed peacefully on March 8, 1935, at twelve years old.
