Hachiko was an akita owned by Professor Eisaburo Ueno in Japan. When the professor would leave in the morning for his job at the University of Tokyo, Hachiko would walk him to the door and greet him at the train station when he returned in the evening. The dog was so loyal, that even after the Professor's death in 1925, Hachiko would wait for his master at the train station. And he did that for the NEXT 11 YEARS. Click here for more of his story.
