Unfortunately, both humans and dogs cannot always enjoy the extended lifespan we hope for, often leading to a final goodbye. Although humans can eventually reconcile with the sorrow and learn to move on, it is a devastating loss for a puppy when their adored owner passes away. The aftermath of such loss may shatter a dog’s world, leaving them in despair. Nevertheless, the devotion and appreciation that these creatures hold for their owners transcends time and extends beyond life itself.
Introducing Zozo, a lovable mutt who visits their owner’s grave without fail every day since their death in 2014. It’s been several years, but Zozo remains committed to showing respect and love to their departed companion.
Back in 2012, the Öztürk family from Turkey happily received a new addition to their household – a baby named Zozo. The arrival of the little guy brought so much happiness to the family. However, it was the head of the family, Ismail Öztürk, who had a unique connection with him and treated him like his own grandchild. Sadly, when Ismail passed away, Zozo was left feeling lost and uncertain about how to deal with the situation.
The little dog disappeared when he became distraught, just like his family who were worried that he might have followed his owner’s path. Despite their extensive efforts to locate him, they were amazed to discover him resting beside Ismail’s tombstone.
Since that fateful day, Zozo has developed a routine of visiting this individual on a daily basis, confiding in her and sharing all his troubles.
A heart-breaking video shows a puppy lying on a pile of dirt next to his owner’s grave. Although the rest of her family showers her with affection, Zoko cannot seem to move past the loss of her human companion. In an effort to help Zoko cope with her grief, İsmail’s son, Zafer Öztürk, began taking her to visit her best friend’s final resting place.
Ismail was buried in a serene place near his home, and when Zafer comes to visit, he can feel the anguish of the canine and struggles to console himself. Every visit to the burial site seems like Zafer is anticipating Ismail’s comeback, longing to reunite with him again.
Each day at prayer time, Zozo lets out a mournful howl. Sometimes, he’s nowhere to be found, but I always manage to track him down at my dad’s resting place. According to my friend Zafer, the way Zozo remains loyal to his departed father has deeply moved many folks in our community. It’s hard not to feel touched by the depth of love this dog has for his owner.
The grandchild of the late individual has also expressed appreciation for Zozo’s unique behavior. They noted that despite owning numerous dogs previously, they have never witnessed such a compassionate act. It is saddening to see Zozo in pain, yet we are thankful that he is surrounded by love.
