If you are looking for a friendship that is forever loyal, always humble, never criticizing and constantly listening, then adopt a dog
Dogs have been helping men from centuries in many ways. Be it any breed, these pawed friends always remain on guard and has the ability to rescue us from any situation. It seems like you are giving a new life to the rescue dog when you adopt him, but it is always the vice-versa. It is they who would happily rescue you from pain, anxiety, expectations, intruders and sometimes even death. You may find many topics related to the most loyal breeds of dogs all over the web, but do you think that breeds are enough on the loyalty scale? A pooch would stay loyal to his family forever irrespective of breeds.
The thing which differentiates them is their sense of smelling and recognizing, not their loyalty. So, it would be a total injustice to rank their loyalty and tag any one of them as “the most loyal”. Let’s know 5 breath taking loyalty stories of canines without giving them any special rank! These fur balls rescued their masters and strangers in some cases from grave danger.
1. Junior- A Shih-Tzu
Shih-Tzu is a toy breed dog, known and preferred for their cuteness. Now, who would have thought while choosing a Shih-Tzu that this toy breed will one day save their lives? Well, Davlimar household was saved by Junior from the fire that tore at the middle of the night. He barked at the top of his pitch till everybody was wide awake, which was unlikely as he was a quite dog. Davlimar household members along with their guests made it out safely and were indebted to their “toy” Junior.
2. Honey- An English Cocker Spaniel
English Cocker Spaniel is an easygoing breed. They love accompanying families and make friends easily. Honey was Michael Bosch’s cocker spaniel that managed to save their lives heroically. They met a severe accident and the SUV rolled upside down in a deep ravine. Bosch realized that only Honey would be able to save him from this fatal accident. He somehow managed to free Honey from the trapped car and the following events were just as he expected. Honey showed his bravery and dedication by getting another man’s attention from half a mile away and brought him to the accident spot. Rescuers concluded that Michael would have lost his precious life if Honey wouldn’t have been there. This fur ball was awarded Dog of the year in 2006 for this incident.
3. Zoey- A Chihuahua
The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dogs and comes in a variety of sizes, colors, coat lengths and shapes. Everybody is familiar with their cuteness and people go head over heels for these cute fur balls. Again, this example will prove that loyalty cannot be ranked among dogs, it is their nature. In 2007, Zoey made headlines for rescuing a one year old child from a rattlesnake. This three foot snake was approaching the child, which was stopped by Zoey. He received a small wound by the snake over his eye, but recovered quickly. So, a Chihuahua can be equally brave as a Rottweiler or any other breed.

What happened then would blow your minds off! 6 months later, Bobbie was at his family’s step door with his feet worn to the bones.
