A Canine Hero: This Devoted Dog Gave Up His Life to Protect His Owner from a Home Invader

This faithful canine gave up his own existence while valiantly attempting to protect his human from a trespasser in their home.

Pets are well-known for their loyalty and love towards their owners. Despite the sorrowful ending, this remarkable story highlights the heroic actions of a dog who gave his life to protect his family.

In Merauke, Indonesia, a heartbreaking incident occurred involving Achy Wijaya’s pet dog. Early in the morning, when Achy woke up, he found his beloved dog lying almost lifeless in their garden. It was particularly distressing for Achy as he had heard his dog barking the previous night. According to NtdNews, Achy was devastated when he found out that his dog had been poisoned, and it wasn’t a robbery attempt because the dog’s constant barking kept the thieves at bay. Achy shared on Facebook, “It was only when we left the house in the morning that we realized that our dog had been poisoned by thieves.” The family was asleep when they were targeted by a burglary gang who had planned to break into their home. This incident has left Achy and his family deeply saddened and shocked.

The dog began to bark ferociously, but nobody paid any attention assuming it was just the cat that caught his attention. Suddenly, the dog ceased barking and was discovered the next day dying from swallowing foam and vomiting, indicating that the dog had been poisoned. The family wished to take the dog to the vet for treatment, but they lived in Papua where the vet only cares for livestock and the clinic was closed on Sunday. They tried to provide various remedies such as milk, oil, and coconut milk, but unfortunately, the dog was too weak and eventually died. Achy recorded the final moments of the brave dog as a tribute to its life and to remind others to take notice of their pets’ behavior. May the dog rest in peace, it was a true hero!
