It’s a picture that has gone viral showing a dog standing over its injured companion and now the dog needs a new home.
A man named Michael Mason was leaving church when he said he noticed a dog standing on the side of the road. As he looked closer, he said he saw the dog standing over its injured companion. Mason turned back around, snapped one picture and shared it with a friend asking for help. He posted it online and it took off.
“The look on his face. ‘Can someone help me?’ He was watching over him like a guard dog,” said Mason.
The picture made even more rounds online after “The Walking Dead” actress Kylie Szymanski posted it on her Facebook fan page.
“I never thought it would happen to me (going viral). I wasn’t thinking about it. I was thinking about the dog,” said Mason.
The dog is now at Fulton County Animal Services where they have named him Herman and he needs a new home. A vet was unable to save Herman’s companion.
