“He cannot be a gentleman which loveth not a dog.” -John Northbrooke

Clearly, the dog owner in this video, taken on the streets of Japan, is a true gentleman. Although his dog is old and cannot walk, Mr. Ootsuki ensures that his sweet old boy gets out of the house.

Pao, a 16-year old pup, is lovingly carted around town in a makeshift cart built by his owner. Just look at the joy in this senior dog’s eyes as he gets plenty of attention and lots of love from both his owner and passersby.

This is how you treat an old dog. With true love. Forever.

    I’m a professional dog-sitter and a few months ago I sat with a 20-year-old cattle dog/Akita mix. Blindness and arthritis were his only real ailments. They can truly amaze us.

    What a refreshing change to see a much loved and well treated dog in this God forsaken country! <3

    Wow, to see a 16 year old dog alive at all is amazing on a continent very well known for eating dogs and skinning them alive for their fur. I think this is mainly in the Koreas and China, but still amazing.

      What a disgusting comment to make!!! This is not a story about China and Korea, this is a story about a man (who lives in JAPAN) and his beloved dog.
