They say that dog is man’s best friend, and if this video doesn’t prove that we don’t know what will.

This footage apparently filmed in South America, shows a devoted dachshund on a lead being held by an elderly gent who is also using a walking cane for assistance.

Every few steps the dog stops so that his master can keep pace with him.

While it would have been a slow trip at snails pace, no doubt the bond between these two would have made the trip all the more worthwhile.
