Loyal Dog Braves Traffic To Stay With Fatally Struck Companion (Video) Now looking for a loving forever home...

Hunt to find a home for loyal dog who refused to leave her friend after she was run over in Los Angeles traffic A black Labrador retriever that braved traffic to stay by another dog that was fatally struck by a car has been hailed for its loyalty. A concerned motorist who saw the dogs on a La Puente street in Los Angeles, California, on Wednesday morning put down traffic cones to alert other drivers and shot a video of the dogs. The footage released on Saturday showed the female Labrador lying next to a motionless, yellow Labrador as vehicles pass dangerously close to them. Blood can be seen around the injured dog's head while the Labrador waits by its side Animal control officials responded to the scene and took the frightened but unharmed dog to a shelter. The Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control (DACC) said the two-year-old dog, who animal shelter staff and volunteers have named Grace, appears to have been well cared for. But nobody has come forward to claim her, and she does not have a tag or microchip implant, so she is up for adoption. DACC said in a statement: '(Grace was) laying in the street next to another dog, which was motionless and had suffered obvious head trauma,' according the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. 'When I saw the video clip taken from a passerby's cellphone, it made me emotional,' the shelter's director Marcia Mayeda said.
