Here at Gencon we love a tale of good old fashioned loyalty between dogs.
Meaning a strong feeling of support or allegiance loyalty between dogs has long been regarded as one of the most interesting aspects of a pact of dogs relationship. Dogs are well known for demonstrating loyalty to their owners but more recently some great examples of canines performing loyal acts have emerged.
This was particularly evident in a recent tale that reached Gencon from Washington. Tiller and her basset hound pal Pheobe went missing whilst out for one of their regualar walks in the nearby woods.The dogs, whose owner remains unnamed, were located after a resident noticed a ‘reddish’ dog near their boundaries. After scurrying off in the direction of a disused water cistern Tillie was located sitting next to her pal who had taken a tumble into the cistern.
Wedged down deeply into the abandoned apparatus Pheobe was unable to break free so it seems Tillie decided to stand guard over her wayward friend until help arrived. Vashon Island Pet Protectors who came to the pets rescue described how relieved basset hound Phoebe and her red setter companion were post rescue.
Do you have an endearing tale of canine loyalty? Perhaps your pet has stayed by your side in times of need, or maybe you have noticed your pets pair together in times of desperation? Gencon dog head collars would love to hear your stories.
