Dog Slows Down to Keep Up With His Elderly Owner

elderly man and dog

Dogs are just amazing creatures, and there is really no doubt in anyone’s mind that they will do whatever it is that they have to do to protect their families and their loved ones. Even when that means being the one who has to make the decisions they might not want to make, dogs do whatever they can to protect their families. Take this dog, for instance. He’s sweet and small, and he is one that has a ton of energy if we had to guess by his size and the breed we might assume he is. He probably loves to leap and bound and run and expend his energy as quickly as possible, but you can see in this video he does nothing of the sort. He does nothing but walk slowly with his elderly owner so that he can be there for him and love him as he walks.

It’s almost as if the dog becomes the human in this instance, walking his person rather than the other way around. His human is so elderly and appears to be so frail he can only move so fast and his dog seems to have the greatest respect for that in every which way. We love to see this, and it’s something that makes us feel good on the inside. Good for dogs that love their humans and will do anything for them. If you didn’t think dogs were good for the elderly before, you will now. Take a look for yourself.
