Wangwang (the loyal dog), has been hailed a hero for saving the life of a 3-year-old Xiaoya who lives in Cixi, Zhejiang Province, China.
Reports say the kid was sent to his grandma’s home on the evening of May 24 while the parents were busy with work.
His grandmother was preparing dinner in the kitchen and had no time to look after him. She thought the kid was playing in the house but by the time she finished her chores and called out Xiaoya, he was no where to be found. The boy had disappeared.

Xiaoya’s grandmother called his parents to inform them of what just happened. Every family member gathered, including neighbors, and a search for the lost kid started.
“What if he was abducted or already dead?” his mother wept uncontrollably.
An observant neighbor soon realized that Wangwang, a white dog that used to play with Xiaoya, was also missing.
It took a very long time during the search when suddenly, they heard a dog barking from a very far distance. They traced the source walking some kilometers, and there was a tired Xiaoya with no one to help.
Wangwang, the loyal dog, stayed very close to the boy as a guard all through the dangerous adventure. He was right beside the boy when the weeping mom rushed to embrace her lost-but-found kid, crying tears of joy.
