The saying goes that dogs are “man’s best friend.”

Day to day, they enrich our lives with companionship and loyalty. But the true test of a friendship sometimes comes when things go really, really wrong. Dogs have proven time and time again that they really love us and will help us in our time of need. A brave pup named Tony is proving once again that dogs really are too good for this world.

Tony’s owner, Jesus Hueche, was out in the yard pruning a tree when he fell to the ground and was knocked unconscious.

Someone called for help, but Tony stepped in until they arrived, hugging his best friend and refusing to let go.

He even tried to jump in the ambulance to take the ride to the hospital together, but the other humans foiled that plan.
