Hachikō

Because of his ever-faithful dedication to his owner, university teacher Hidesamuro Ueno, Hachikō ended up being a famous figure. Hachikō's story dates back to the 1920s in Japan. Every early morning, as his owner Ueno went to work, the devoted Hachikō would accompany him every day to the train station. Hachikō would patiently sit there till the end of the day, waiting to greet Ueno upon his return. In 1925, Ueno suddenly died at work, leaving Hachikō still waiting at the train station, hoping for his owner's return. Over the next Ten Years, Hachikō continued to patiently enjoy trains arrive and wait on Ueno's arrival, till his own demise in 1935. Deemed to be the most well-known devoted dog, Hachikō has been considered a real testament to the profundity of commitment and love canines have for their human companions.

At age 9, most cops pet dogs would have already retired, however, Apollo wasted no time and selflessly served in operations. He optimistically browsed and searched for signs of life - for survivors - and helped hurt victims. He was almost killed by fire and falling concretes, his paws split and bruised by jagged particles ... He was exhausted from seemingly endless shifts, but in hopes of finding living victims, Apollo continued and bravely strove for about 18 hours a day for several weeks.
