There’s nothing like a little bittersweet dog love story to get the internet into a frenzy. This time, it’s a photo of a pit bull guarding his female companion after she was hit by a car in Atlanta.
The pic, uploaded by a man passing by the scene, went viral after “The Walking Dead” actress Kylie Szymanki shared the image on her Facebook fan page. The vet was unfortunately unable to save the injured companion, but the pit bull is currently at Fulton County Animal Services where they have treated him and named him Herman.
Herman is currently up for adoption, so there’s still hope that this story will have a happy ending after all.
