This is the sorrowful moment a dying pet dog waved its paws and seemingly bidding its owner goodbye.
Heart-rending footage filmed on January 20 shows the six-year-old Alaskan Malamute confined at a vet’s office in Jinzhong City, Shanxi province after it was diagnosed with liver cancer. The feeble pooch was hooked up to an IV drip while its tearful owner Ms. Xu could only watch helplessly by its side.
Despite being crippled by the disease, the dog, upon seeing Ms. Xu, managed to wave its forelegs back and forth as if saying farewell. It then shuffled closer before reportedly taking its last breath after Ms. Xu told it: ‘If you’re uncomfortable, you can leave.’
The bereaved owner said: ‘I got the dog when it was just a puppy back in 2015. It just had its sixth birthday.’
