Residents in the Savannah, Georgia, area are rallying to help a stray dog who refuses to leave an area cemetery where she buried her dead puppy.

According to a story from WTOC-TV, a 15-year-old saw the dog in the cemetery last week lying next to the dead puppy, and tried to get the dog to come over to him.

With below freezing temperatures on the way, Hunter Cone said he tried several times to get the dog to come with him, but the dog appeared scared and would run away, only to return later to sit next to her puppy.

Cone said he was impressed by the dog’s devotion to the dead puppy.

“I mean, the dog braced through the cold, starvation and thirst to stay with its dead puppy,” Hunter said.

“We’re trying to work a strategy to get the dog,” Cone told ABC News.

Cone lined up someone who would adopt the dog if they are able to catch it. So far, no one has been able to get the dog, though food and water have been put out for her.

Cone said Animal Control was called about the dog, but they said they did not have an officer to respond to a dog-at-large call at the cemetery, according to a Savannahnow.com story.

The dog buried the puppy in the cemetery and has not been seen for a couple of days.
