One of the best traits that dogs embody is devotion. They love with their whole hearts and aren’t afraid to dedicate themselves to their family.
A recent viral TikTok has shown that trait in action, by telling the story of Toby, a mixed-breed dog from Peru.
Every day, Toby watches as his owner leaves for work. Perched on the family’s balcony, he keeps watching until he can no longer see him.
