Dogs, especially when it comes to young children, are known to be so protective of their owners and families. Dogs, like pack animals, are naturally on the lookout for anyone they perceive to be a member of their group. A huge dog keeps guard over his family’s children at the bus stop in one video, demonstrating this perfectly. The video was taken when the dog’s owner decided to film the dog and his charges as they waited for the school bus at a nearby bus stop. The visuals in the footage have shown everyone who has seen it how much the dog values his younger family members.
Riding the school bus is a rite of passage for many students in the United States. Fortunately, while parents cannot always protect their children, school buses are among the safest vehicles on the road, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Many parents may walk their young children to the bus stop in order to ensure that everything runs properly. In the case of the guardian dog, it appears that he has assumed this role, waiting at the end of the driveway as they all wait for the bus. The huge dog is seen sitting and waiting calmly in the video clip, waiting for the bus to arrive and transport the youngsters away to school.
He also appears to be present to ensure that nothing bad occurs to the youngsters he adores. However, protecting one’s family is simply a fraction of a dog’s instinct. While the dog in the video is just sitting there watching, it demonstrates how loyal and protective a dog can be. The youngsters slowly begin to board the school bus as it approaches. The dog, for his part, continues to sit and watch, not moving until the bus door closes. Then he’s gone, his work done, at least for the time being. The dog runs rapidly back to his house at the end of the film, his morning’s work done. This in and of itself demonstrates that he was sincerely concerned about the children’s welfare and simply had their best interests at heart.
