The American adaptation of the Japanese tale about a loyal dog named Hachiko is based on a true story. Most of us have heard this heartbreaking story, either from the internet or from a friend.

The story revolves around a dog’s loyalty to his late master. It all started when Professor Parker found the abandoned dog at the train station.

He took it home, intending to return the dog to its owner. Parker discovers that the dog is an Akita and names it Hachiko. While nobody claims the dog, he then decided to keep Hachi.

Parker found family and friendship with Hachi. Every day, Hachi accompanies him to the train station and returns every afternoon to greet him after work.

This Akita dog taught the local people near the station love, compassion, and above all, unyielding loyalty.

One day, an unforeseen event happened; Hachi’s beloved master passed away and never returned to the train station.

Four seasons had passed, Hachi still waits for Professor Parker to arrive.

One freezing evening, while Hachi sat on the block he used to lay in waiting, Parker’s friend came to him.

The man said, “You don’t have to wait anymore, Hachi. He is not coming back.” The dog’s eyes expressed the pain and the longing.

For nine years, Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot at the station every day. He still waits for his beloved master to come home.

In 1930, a black retriever named Jack became the legendary hero in the docks of River Tawe. Jack saved a young boy from drowning in the river.

His first heroic deed goes untold until he rescues someone else. Ironically, it is believed that Jack has initially been afraid of water.

William Thomas encouraged and trained the retriever to venture out for a swim. Jack was able to save many people from drowning as his swimming skills leveled up.

This smart dog does it by holding the person’s collars and dragging them to shore. As he accumulates record-breaking heroic deeds, he became known as Swansea Jack – the hero dog living in the docks and riverbanks of Tawe.

At first, there was no verified number on how many times Swansea Jack save lives. His master, William, is illiterate and was unable to keep a tally of his bravery.

Eventually, it was figured out that Swansea Jack rescued around 27 people during his lifetime.
