Shep tries to save owner from freezing to death.
 
Really sad story.

German shepherd Stays 23 Days Next to Deceased Owner | Life With Dogs

Being best friends with a German Shepherd this story really hit me.

There's nothing in this world quite like a loyal dog.

What a great dog.

Remind me never to drive in places where it would take days to find my car if it broke down.

The moral of the story is go prepared.

People always wonder why I keep a few cans of food and an opener in my rig. This is why.

I've never been in a situation where the dog tried to keep me warm, but my Chessie would insist I take hold of his big collar when the yard was icey. He'd block my path with his body until I did so. On the way back to the house I had to hold on until I'd opened the door, whether I wanted to or not.

And stay with the car as long as possible. A car is a heck of alot easier to find than one person in a large area of land. Especially if people are expecting you. When you don't show they will report it sooner or later. Most " survival" type situations like this last no more than 72 hours. At least in the US.

Exactly. It's not uncommon around here for people to get stuck up in the mountains during winter. It's almost always the one who goes looking for help that ends up dying.
