‘Buboy’ The Viral Stray Dog Who Waited For His Master Was Honored w/ Statue
BUBOY – The stray dog who became viral on social media for patiently waiting by the door at his dead master’s college faculty room was immortalized with his own statue several months after he passed away.
Buboy became viral on social media after a student shared her experience of seeing buboy, the school dog. It was waiting for the professor who used to pet him and give him food.
Buboy was known to be the loyal pet of a college professor in Pampanga. The dog used to follow the professor around the Mabalacat College City premises.
Carmelito Marcelo, the master of Buboy, had a stroke and later on died. His dog Buboy was visiting the faculty room from time to time, laying his paws on the door as if he was knocking.
Months later, Buboy, the dog who went viral on Facebook, was hit by a vehicle and passed away. According to the Animal Kingdom Foundation (AKF), the dog was rushed over by volunteer caregivers to the campus to be checked but he did not survive.
Recently, the dog who went viral on social media for patiently waiting for his master at the door was immortalized. His own statue was built several months after he passed away.
It was said in the caption of the photo:
“Finally, Buboy the #PinoyHachiko, now immortalized at the Animal Kingdom Pet Cemetery in Capas, Tarlac. ❤️
Thank you Themebuilders Philippines for this masterpiece. ❤️”
In a Facebook post on Friday, the Animal Kingdom Foundation showed a photo of Buboy’s statue. It was erected at the foundation’s animal cemetery in Capas, Tarlac.
The viral dog on facebook, who has come to be known as the Filipino version of the loyal Japanese Akita Hachiko, broke netizens’ hearts last May over his story.
