Viral photo: Dog stands watch over his injured companion

Michael Mason, of Georgia, was leaving church when he saw a dog standing on the side of the road.

As he looked closer, he realized the dog seemed to be standing guard over his injured companion. Mason quickly snapped a picture and shared it with a friend asking for help. He posted it online and it took off.

“The look on his face. ‘Can someone help me?’ He was watching over him like a guard dog,” Mason said.

After “The Walking Dead” actress Kylie Szymanski posted it on her Facebook fan page, the picture soon went viral.

“I never thought it would happen to me (going viral). I wasn’t thinking about it. I was thinking about the dog,” Mason said.

The handsome-faced Herman is at Fulton County Animal Services and he needs a new home.

Sadly, a vet was not able to save Herman’s companion.
