Dogs are truly man’s best friend, and at times, they also act as our saviors, putting their own life on the line for our sake.
In a tragic turn of events, a four-year-old white Labrador named Dayko courageously gave up his own life to save the lives of seven people.

Dayko worked at the Ibara Fire Station in Ecuador as a rescue dog for three and a half years. He was described by his co-rescuers as a hard-working, loving, and loyal companion. Unfortunately, he passed away from severe exhaustion after rescuing seven people from the devastating earthquake in Ecuador last April 16.
The 7.8 magnitude earthquake buried a lot of people under piles of rubble, and Dayko had been searching and rescuing them for several days.
