An Indian doctor on Friday shared a heart-touching video of a dog excusing itself and suddenly going back to help a visually challenged man on the street.
Captioned “They are more ‘human’ than us”, the video began spreading rapidly like wildfire.

Netizens could not hold themselves from expressing their overwhelming love for “doggozens” – who they said bring joy and love with their expressive round eyes and wagging tails.
Hats off to the 🐕. The animal is better than the other "animal".— Mahakal🔥 (@mahakal487) July 3, 2020
Let's not term such things as a 'Human' act make such acts only belong to the human species. We have always seen other species being more kind than humans.— Harish Chandrasekaran🇮🇳 (@HarishPositive) July 3, 2020
It surprises me how much they know, and care. 😲— Vinisha Gupta (@Vinii01) July 3, 2020
The video has evoked hearty emotions from people because India has been witnessing a strange transportation of stray dogs from around the country to the north-eastern state of Nagaland.
Most people are familiar with the infamous “Yulin Dog Meat Festival” celebrated in China this time of the year. Just like the Yulin Festival, some tribes in Nagaland also consume dog meat as a delicacy. It is considered a relief for pain and ailments also.
If reports are to be believed, Indian stray dogs are being transported illegally via trucks to Nagaland for consumption.
Mind-numbing pictures of thousands of dogs, strangled inside sacks with their faces out, have surfaced on social media. People have urged others to write letters against the practice to Chief Secretary of Nagaland Temjen Toy.

These dogs were being taken from West Bengal to Nagaland on the 26th of last month to be SOLD for MEAT. Please please write an EMAIL to firstname.lastname@example.org, asking for this practise to be stopped. If they get 50,000+ emails tonight, they will act against this. Please do this tonight. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/wCrRApuMPx— Ishita Yadav (@IshitaYadav) July 1, 2020
Finally, on Wednesday, the state government of Nagaland decided to ban “Dog Bazaars”, Toy revealed in a Twitter post.
