This is a heartwarming story about a man and his affection for a stray dog that one day wandered into their home.

The daughter of the man, who has since passed on said a few years ago, Johnny appeared in front of their house and they began feeding him.

The dog then began guarding the house and one day, it walked into the compound covered in blood.

As they were Muslims, the father asked the neighbour to help take the dog to the vet and soon after the incident, Johnny became attached to the father.

"Dad began feeding him and caring for him like a child.  In fact, each time we went out to eat, dad would collect all the chicken bones and even ask those from other tables.

"Johnny was so attached to my father and would even walk him to the mosque everyday.

"My dad would have to force Johnny to go home so as to not bother other Muslims at the mosque.

"When my dad returned, Johnny would be there, waiting," she wrote.

She said her dad passed away on April 16 and Johnny just sat there looking depressed.

"Johnny has eaten already, don't worry dad. Even without you, we will make sure he always has food and water.

"Please pray for my father. Thank you if you already have," she tweeted.
