An image of a pit bull standing guard over his female companion has gone viral and touched the hearts of hundreds.
Michael Mason was driving on Sylvan Road near Deckner Road in Atlanta when he saw the injured pit bull.
Mason snapped a picture of “Herman” the pit bull standing over his female companion until help arrived.
Herman’s companion was seriously injured when she was hit by a car and did not survive the incident.
Walking Dead actress Kylie Szymanski posted it on her Facebook fan page and it’s received more than one thousand shares.
Fulton County animal services have received hundreds of calls, but no one has adopted Herman.
Mason tells FOX 5 he’s glad his picture will possibly help find Herman a home.
