A loyal dog was tragically separated from her family in the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok, Thailand when it was thought that she fell off her family’s boat.
The dog managed to paddle her way to shore, and landed at the Rama V pier, where she patiently waited for over 30 days for her family to come get her.
But the sad reality is they never came. The dog stayed right there on the pier. She prowled day after day, on the lookout for her family.
For weeks, she foraged for food and water. Thanks to the kindness of strangers, she didn’t starve. And when she was finally picked up, she was healthy.
Still, the dog continued looking for her family. She sat there on the pier, staring off into the horizon searching for her family’s boat.
According to a Facebook post by Thanawan Tongporn, she waited there for a full month, hoping her family might come back for her. But the sad reality is they never did. The post was shared more than 11,000 times, and soon went viral all over Thailand.
