ATLANTA — An image of a pit bull standing guard over his injured female companion has gone viral online, according to WAGA.

Michael Mason was driving when he saw the injured pit bull. He snapped a picture of a male dog, later named “Herman,” standing over it.

Help arrived, but the female dog’s injuries were so severe it did not survive.

After the photo made it online, “Walking Dead” actress Kylie Szymanski posted it on her Facebook fan page and it has received more than 1,000¬†shares.

Fulton County, Ga., animal services have received hundreds of calls, but no one has adopted Herman yet.
