Impressive Animals: #7 Loyal German Shepherd

A very loyal German shepherd named Capitan continues to stand guard at the grave of his owner six years after the owner passed away. Amazingly, the dog wasn't aware of the cemetery prior to his owner's death. "He turned up here one day, all on his own, and started wandering all around the cemetery until he eventually found the tomb of his master," said the cemetery director, who now takes care of the dog. "During the day he sometimes has a walk around the cemetery but always rushes back to the grave. And every day at six o'clock sharp, he lies down on top of the grave, stays there all night."
