    This heartwarming video shows a shaking and muddy spaniel wanders amid the rubble trying to lead rescuers to his injured friend in the nightmarish landscape after the earthquake and tsunami wrecked Japan 6 days ago.

    To summarize the mens’ conversation: at first they thought the injured dog was dead but after realizing it was alive they immediately called a vet for assistance for both dogs.

    CNN is reporting that both dogs have received medical attention. The injured dog is currently at a veteranarian getting care and the loyal dog friend is at a shelter.
