6 Famous Dogs of History (Slideshow)

  • 2 of 7


1. Hachiko, the Dog Who Was Loyal to the End

Hidesaburo Ueno, Hachiko’s human companion, would meet with his beloved pooch every day after work at Toyko’s Shibuya station. That is, until Ueno passed away suddenly and never returned to the train station. Until his own death nine years later, Hachiko would wait patiently at the train station for Ueno. That’s a truly loyal dog!
