This is Hachiko, a Japanese Akita. Akitas are a breed of dog largely known for their loyalty. Hachiko followed his owner (a professor) to the train station each day when he went to work, and then waited for him to return at the station every evening. One day the professor suffered a fatal heart attack at the university, and never came home. The next day, and every day after that for nine years, Hachiko showed up at the train station to wait for his master to get off of the train. He waited each day until he died in March, 1934. A bronze statue was later built in front of the train station, on Hachiko’s waiting spot, to honor his loyalty.
