A dog in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, refused to leave his deceased owner's body, according to CNN affiliate KOCO,which reports that police found a dead, homeless man near a river on Friday.
KOCO reports the bull terrier was taken to the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter where workers believe the dog is in mourning. The only thing that perks him up is his leash, which still smells like his owner.
The dog has to stay at the shelter until Wednesday so that the family of the homeless man has the opportunity to claim him. After that, an animal rescue group is expected to take him and he would be placed in a foster home until he is able to find a new family.
