(ANIMAL VIDEO) You don’t have to speak Japanese to understand the sympathetic tones of the two reporters observing these dogs  – and the loyal dog who led them to an injured friend, then refused to leave his friend’s side. There is so much we don’t understand about the emotional lives of animals. But we know they can suffer tremendously, and we know they care for each other.

We wish all the people and animals of Japan heartfelt concern during this incomprehensibly difficult time. We know that the people of Japan will respond like these two friends, sticking together in this time of need.  Ganbatte kudasai! (“Don’t give up!”) – Global Animal

  1. I just did a donation. It’s easy and fast.Please ask all your friends to donate to them. They really need us to help. Please someone update these 2 poor dogs ,everybody is waiting their good news.

  2. As of March 21, 2011- The dogs have NOT been RESCUED.

    UPDATE: Kenn Sakurai has NOT RESCUED these TWO DOGS. Apparently, nobody has and they have NOT BEEN SEEN OR HEARD FROM SINCE THE INITIAL FIRST VIDEO of them. A man named Kenn Sakurai has claimed credit for their rescue and the MSM took his Facebook page posting and ran with it. Many people who initially cared about the well-being of the dogs found relief in his posting and have since become newly appointed, loyal, Kool-Aid drinking disciples despite the fact that he has no proof and refuses to give any information on the dogs current situation.

  3. The dogs have NOT been RESCUED.

    They were left there without aid and their FATE is UNKNOWN. The media has taken the word of a possible scammer named Kenn Sakurai who claims to have rescued them but refuses to provide any proof, photos or information on their current condition. However, he is begging for donations on his Facebook page. Many people have already sent this man money that could have been sent to legitimate rescue charities. The news media or a reporter needs to investigate this and provide a truthful update.

    Also, it was reported that the Fuji News team that stumbled upon the dogs did not have food or water with them and had to leave them as they had no way to transport them although they did supposedly call a rescue group to advise them. The rescue group, JEARS, has claimed they tried to find the dogs but could not. THEY HAVE NOT BEEN SEEN SINCE THE ORIGINAL FIRST VIDEO.
