Loyal Dog Treks To Train Station Every Night For Months In Search Of Owner by jannydear(f): 7:00pm On Mar 02, 2018
This heartbreaking news reminds me of the movie; Hachiko, starring Richard Gere. What could be more heartbreaking than a loyal dog, abandoned or lost and searching for its owner?

The dog, a new mother of four puppies, has been seen running amongst the trains at Kanjurmarg Railway Station in Mumbai, India, since Jan. 2. According to National Geographic, the dog specifically waits for the Kalyan-bound train on Platform 1, which arrives nightly around 11 p.m., then chases after the women’s coach, peeking into doorways and scanning windows in search of something — or someone.

Sameer Thorat, an IT specialist, posted the video to Youtube on Feb. 21, with the message;

“I spotted the dog while returning from work. The way it waits for the late-night trains and tries to [peek] inside the ladies coach, it seems it is searching for a particular person who either fed it regularly or [left] it behind. I guess someone has left her.”

Thorat commutes to work daily between 3 p.m. and midnight. He claims he began seeing the dog about two weeks ago. A dog lover himself, the man was hoping that posting footage of the pooch on social media would help the stray or maybe unearth the reason why she regularly awaits the train. Thus far, the clip has brought attention to the dog’s situation from other worried commuters and dog-lovers, who found she also has a litter of puppies, less than two weeks old.

“We are not moving her from that place because the puppies are very small,” Thorat says. “Their eyes are not open yet.”

Concerned animal lovers are now watching after the dog and looking into getting her puppies adopted. According to Thorat, he suspects her owner may have abandoned her upon discovering she was pregnant.

Karen Overall, a canine behavior expert at the University of Pennslyvania, tells National Geographic says the dog has a determined attitude.

“This dog is an optimist,” Karen Overall, a. “It’s interesting that this dog would have a relationship with someone that is so strong that she would still look [for her].”

Overall believes the person the dog is looking for may have moved or died. She thinks it will probably keep waiting for the runaway owner or friend, craving the loving kindness and bond that results from a unique relationship between a human and a dog. Watch video below;
