For dogged loyalty, there can't be many pet pooches to match devoted Dahuang from northern China.
The eight-year-old mutt has become a full time career to stricken Zhang Shoujiang, who lost both legs in a car accident.
During the day, Dahuang helps his 52-year-old master pull a cart selling sweets around town.
Then at night he takes care of Zhang at his home in Changchun, Jilin province.
"He is my best friend and most loyal companion," said Zhang.
"I couldn't manage the cart by myself so he happily helps with it thanks to a special harness I made for him.
"Then at night, he reminds me when it's time for me to eat and he guards the house for me until the morning.," he added.
Zhang explained: "People offer me money or donations but I would rather earn my living and thanks to Dahuang I can."
