DALLAS, Texas –¬†A heartbreaking photo shows a loyal dog standing guard beside his friend in Dallas, Texas.

Rescuers rushed to the scene after a photo of the dog was posted to social media, NBC DFW reports.

The dog was apparently hit by a car, and the Great Pyrenees apparently dragged him to the side of the road.

The dog was taken in by Dallas Animal Services. He did not have a collar or a microchip implant. If he is not claimed within 72 hours, he will be released to a special group focused on the rescue of Great Pyrenees dogs.
