    New Delhi (Sputnik): It's believed that at some point, the modern dog’s ancestor, the wolf, made a transition from the kingdom of the wild to become a domesticated companion. Dogs, time and again, have proven how much loyalty and love they have for their human friends.

    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.

    ​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.

    Finally, on Wednesday, the state government of Nagaland decided to ban “Dog Bazaars”, Toy revealed in a Twitter post.
