The video of the animal, published on Sina Weibo, the platform used instead of Twitter or Facebook, has already been viewed 1.4 million times. The Pear Video service said that the dog has been there every day since last August 21.

The Chinese social media was filled with comments. A taxi driver said that people are trying to help the animal, but that it flees when someone gets too close.

"The drivers often give him small pieces of food, but when we leave (the car) he goes," he said. "The relationship between the owner and the dog was very deep, and after she died, this little dog just stood guard ... Every day he's on the road, I always see him."

Chinese netizens remembered Hachiko (1923 - 1935), a Japanese Akita dog who became famous for waiting for his owner, Professor Hidesaburo Ueno, at a train station even several years after his death.

Hachi said goodbye every day from the front door when the teacher went to work, and he would wait for him at the end of the day at the nearby station of Gonzy de San Fer.

This act did not go unnoticed either by the people passing through the area or by the owners of the nearby shops, and all came to appreciate the bond that was established between the dog and its owner.

On May 21, 1925, Professor Ueno did not return because he suffered a cerebral hemorrhage that caused his death, but Hachikō remained in his place, waiting for him. First, it was days, then months and finally years.

This moved all those around him, who began to call him the faithful dog. On March 8, 1935, Hachiko died of filariasis. They found his body in front of the Shibuya station, where he had been waiting for his owner and friend for 9 years.
