This heart-melting photo proves that dogs are not just man’s best friend – they can also be his hero.

An elderly Irishman was out on a walk with his dog Jack through Portarlington earlier this week when the senior fell into a ditch and failed to recover – thankfully, Jack never left his side.

In a Twitter post that was posted by the Garda Síochána, the officers describe how they arrived on the scene and were unable to locate where the senior had fallen.

Jack then rushed over to the Garda officers and led them over to where his beloved owner had fallen.

“Even when ambulance arrived Jack wouldn’t rest unless he could see him!” wrote the Garda officers.

The Garda Twitter page reported that Jack and his owner are now safe and sound at home – and social media users have been doting over the adorable photo of Jack awaiting his owner’s return.
