Video of Dog Waiting by Friend’s Side After He Was Hit By a Car Has People Crying

Video of a dog who sat by the side of the road after his friend was hit by a car is going viral. Footage of the rescue made by Samantha (@streetlifetothesweetlife) of Houston, Texas was shared on TikTok, after she found one of the dogs in the middle of the road. Thankfully, this story has a happy ending, but the close-call had people online worried sick.

The dog, whom they later dubbed Corey, was waiting by the side of the road when the TikToker came across them. “This little guy saw his friend [get] hit by a car and never left his side," she wrote in the video's onscreen caption. "We wouldn't have found him if his friend wasn't waiting by the side of the road," she added. They now believe that "Corey" waited by "Matthew's" (the other dog) side for about six hours before they got there, but as soon as the humans found Matthew, they rushed him to the hospital right-quick. Fair warning, some of the video is disturbing and might be tough for some people to watch.

 People in the comments section praised Samantha for making the save. "Thank you for saving them I wish there were more awesome people in the world," @hammersx3 wrote. "Your awesome for saving them your awesome I love what you do," @

While other people just hoped that Matthew was going to be alright. "Please tell me the other dog is alive and okay now," @moonwillow2 pleaded. "Literally tearing up at 8 am," @idontl1keyou_ chimed in. While a third commenter gave Corey all the credit for staying by his friend's side. "He stood on the road like he was flagging someone to stop," @jimmy23r explained. 

Thankfully, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. In a second video shared online, Samantha explained that Corey's actions really did save his BFF. "When you spend six hours laying in the road trying to find help for a friend...And you get him a rescue and a foster home," Samantha wrote.

It all goes to prove that not all heroes wear capes. Some wear doggy collars.
