Jesus Hueche, 28, was injured while chopping a tree outside his home in Baha Blanca, Argentina, and his dog Tony demonstrated the unwavering love these animals have for his family. The dog was terrified and refused to abandon his human father, who had lost consciousness as a result of the powerful hit to the head he received after falling from the tree.
When the paramedics arrived, they discovered Tony next to Jesus, and they helped him with a brace as the dog continued to cuddle him and support him.
The man finally responded by patting Tony on the back to assure him that everything was alright. When they were about to load him into the ambulance and transport him to the hospital, Tony attempted to join them.
Fortunately, Jesus had minor injuries and was quickly released from the hospital. Images of the man’s dog accompanying him during the accident went viral.
“We found him on the street one day and adopted him; we gave him love and food, and he is now a member of our family. Tony, too, has a kid named Thumb, who is my grandson. He is a son to me.”
With a laugh, Jesus said:
“He follows me everywhere and sleeps on my bed till my lady takes him out. It was a fright because I simply have an irritation in my back and a little head injury. I ascended a ladder because a branch was causing me trouble, and it was the final one before I finished the job.”
Jesus then added:
“I didn’t understand it at the time, but when I fell, I lost consciousness. When I awoke, my son (in allusion to the dog) was on top of me, growling at the ambulance and Civil Defense personnel. Even when they were going to put my brace around my neck and the stretcher almost bit one of the people who assisted me.”
