This Caring Dog Stops Traffic So That Kindergarten Kids Could Cross The Road Safely

Animals can surprise us in all kinds of different ways. In the past, we’ve already discussed the gosling kindergarten teacher, laughed at the angry watermelon supervisor, talked about owls that sleep with their faces down, and many more. So what now? Is there anything left that we haven’t seen yet? Yes, the answer is yes.

Today we’re going to take a look at a cute pupper that most probably had worked as a traffic officer in one of his past lives. Meet Kupata—dog from Georgia who turned himself into a local celebrity by helping kids safely cross the street.

Watch the video and see for yourself.

Such a good boy!

The video you’ve just watched was filmed in the town of Batumi, located in Georgia, by a guy named Beqa Tsinadze. The video shows a group of young children waiting for cars to stop so they could safely cross the road. But then a mysterious dog comes to the rescue and saves the day by stopping the traffic.

And it wasn’t just a one-time thing!

Turns out that Kupata does this every day! He basically works as a full-time traffic officer. And just between you and me—according to anonymous sources, he might be the best traffic officer there is… “Kupata gets angry when a car crosses by every time. ,” a local resident told The Dodo. “He takes his job very seriously. And sometimes he waits for children for one hour, to make sure that they feel safe in the park and they cross the street safely.”

No one truly knows why Kupata decided to become a traffic officer. But it’s totally amazing. Kupata was actually a wandering stray dog before arriving here but then locals have taken it upon themselves to care for him. Maybe this voluntary work the dog is doing is sort of an expression of gratitude to all the community members who helped him when he needed it the most.

“I’m sure that he thinks that taking care of children and taking care of our street is his job. Kupata shows us that even dogs can be very responsible and very loyal,” one of the local residents told The Dodo.

By the way, Kupata means “Sausage” in English!

Recently Adjara Tourism Department honored the pup by presenting him with his very own doghouse. Besides, the doghouse is emblazoned with a “People’s Choice” star depicting Kupata’s name!
