These two pups are taking friendship to a whole 'nother level.

According to Inside Edition, an incredibly loyal dog protected his injured canine friend even as a speeding train roared over their heads. The viral video shows the two dogs flattening themselves against wooden tracks as a train overtakes the tracks in snowy Ukraine.

One dog appears to be injured and unable to stand as the train approaches. The other dog lies down and ducks its head next to the wounded dog. Neither of them appeared to have been hit by the locomotive.

The fearless duo were eventually rescued and video of the dogs huddled together was uploaded to Facebook, where it has been viewed thousands of times since Christmas Day.

It took time to rescue the animals because the guardian dog was so protective of his injured companion. Eventually, however, the two were reunited with their owners, who had reported the dogs missing.
