Hachiko, known as “Japan’s most loyal dog,” was adopted by a Japanese professor named Hidesaburo Ueno in 1924. The Akita pup would wait every day for Ueno at a train station to walk him home after he finished his work day.
After Ueno’s sudden death, the pup continued to go to the train station and wait for him, and did so even after being adopted by another family.
Hachiko captured the country’s hearts and the statue of him was erected in 1934.
