Man Learns The Heartbreaking Reason His Adopted Dog Watches Him Sleep

Most guard dogs will follow their human around so they can keep an eye on them and sleep near their humans at night, but a dog that watches over people while they fall asleep is taking defense a bit too far.

But as the man discussed in this video discovered, his adoped golden retriever wasn’t watching him from the doorway while he slept to guard him- the dog just wanted to make sure his new human wasn’t going to abandon him in the middle of the night.

It’s nice to be reminded that dogs have feelings too.
