Loyal dog sits by owner's grave for six years

Updated:

CORDOBA, Argentina – A German Shepherd named Capitán ran away from home after his owned died in 2006.  The dog was found a week later at his owner's grave site – and he's kept regular vigil there ever since.

According to a story in Huffington Post, Capitán was never taken to the grave so no one knows how the dog found it.

Family members say Capitán occasionally leaves his owner's resting place but always returns at night.  It's believed this is because he doesn't want to leave his owner alone after dark.
