It had been three days since the fatal car accident in which the schnauzer’s owner was killed on June 5 in Pingtung County’s Wandan Township, but the faithful dog has been staying around the site of the crash. Concerned locals have been leaving food for the dog, and some have come forward offering to adopt it. Unfortunately, the dog is scared and runs away at the sight of people. As a result, it is difficult to keep track of its whereabouts. The deceased owner’s relatives have asked people in the neighborhood to let them know if they manage to catch it, so they can take it back home.

Wandan Township Chief Kuo Bao-lien has been moved by the story and says that the township office is willing to help and prevent the dog from becoming a stray. In the meantime, the office will look into the situation at the crossroads in an effort to reduce the number of traffic accidents there.

Jiasing Village Chief Lin Cheng-hsiu went to the site on June 7 to offer incense and burn ghost money in honor of the dead and pray that the owner could protect his dog and have it return home safely. Lin also asked the police to install a warning light at the crossroads to prevent further tragic accidents.

距離一隻雪納瑞主人六月五日於屏東縣萬丹鄉的死亡車禍已經三天了,忠心的雪納瑞犬仍在主人車禍地點徘徊,關心狗狗的民眾紛紛在現場擺放食物,希望能領養這隻狗,但狗狗受驚嚇,見人就跑,無法掌握行蹤,死者家屬拜託附近居民,如果誘捕到狗兒希望能讓家屬帶回。

萬丹鄉長郭寶聯得知忠狗的事蹟後非常感動,表示公所願提供協助,避免忠心的雪納瑞淪為流浪犬,同時將針對發生車禍的路口檢討原因,降低肇事率。

加興村長林正修六月七日午到現場上香燒紙錢告慰亡者,希望雪納瑞犬的主人能保佑愛犬平安回到家屬身邊,同時要求警方在肇事路口設置警示燈,避免悲劇再發生。
