“A dog is a man’s best friend” is a common English saying because they are more loyal than all other animals, and some say they are more loyal than people too. Dogs and humans have lived under the same roof for 15,000 years. Recently a dog named Capitan has shown us why dogs are such an iconic symbol of loyalty and friendship around the world.
