Dogs are considered as 'man's bestfriend'. Read the story of dog that shows what loyalty is.

Dogs won't be considered 'man's bestfriend' for no reason. They are the most loyal animals in the world.

A dog named Hachiko in 1923 is a golden brown Akita dog. He was born on a farm and adopted by a university professor named Hidesaburo Ueno. He showered him with love and treated him as his own family. In return, the dog showed him affection and loyalty.

Hachiko learned his master's everyday routine so he accompanies his master to Shibuya station in the morning. He patiently waits there until his master's return to home from work in the afternoon.

Hachicko's everyday routine changed in 1925. One morning, Hachiko accompanied hi master to the train station but he didn't come back in the afternoon. Professor Ueno died because of brain hemorrhage. Poor Hachi waited for 10 years for his master to come back from the station. He waited for a reunion that would never happen. He waited not knowing that his master already died.

Hachiko's unconditional love inspired Japanese and to visit Shibuya station. His master's relatives tried to bring his home but he keeps coming back to the station.

After 10 years of waiting, Hachiko died on March 8, 1935. His dead body was found on a street in Shibuya. His master's wife and some staff in the station mourned for the loss of the faithful dog.

Hachiko might be dead but his faithfulness, love and loyalty will always be remembered. In order to honor the dog, a bronze statue that resembles him was built in Shibuya station. However, the statue melted in order to make an ammunition during the Second World War. A new statue was built in 1948 after the war ended.

Many statues were erected in order to remember Hachiko. In his hometown, in front of Akita Dog Museum, outside the Odate Station and at the University of Tokyo. A monument was also built beside his master's grave in Aoyama Cemetery in Minato, Tokyo.

Hachiko's remains is preserved and on display at the National Museum of Science in Tokyo.

A movie entitiled 'Hachi: A Dog's Tale' was released last 2009 in Hollywood. The movie made Hachiko more famous. Many people were moved and emotional after watching the movie.

Hachiko's love and loyalty truly inspired people not just in Japan but around the world.
