Faithful Dog Stays By Owner's Side After She's Killed In A Hit-And-Run

This devastating example of one dog's bond with his owner will have you in tears.

It is believed 42-year-old Kelly Black was taking her dog Paco out for a walk when she was fatally struck by a semi-truck on Friday morning.

The tragic scene was made even more heartbreaking as, according to reports, Paco stayed by his owner's side while police investigated and even put up crime tape around him.

In an interview Action News, Black's family said the two were always together.
