Loyal dog who waits at train station for his owner to come home every day wins ...

A dog in south-west China has touched the hearts of net users after he was shown waiting faithfully outside a train station every day for his owner to come home.

A video of Xiongxiong, which means Bear in Chinese, shows the dog lingering near Liziba metro station in Chongqing's Yuzhong district for his owner to return from work.

Locals, who are familiar with Xiongxiong and his owner, said the 15-year-old dog is 'very well-behaved' despite without a collar and a leash.

'Xiongxiong will appear at the train station at about 7am or 8am every day, when his owner leaves for work,' a local resident was quoted as saying in the Chongqing Evening News.

'Then he will linger at the station - specifically at Exit B - for about 12 hours, sometimes until 8pm,' he said. 

'He just waits. The moment he sees his owner, he gets so happy and excited,' the resident said.

The video shows Xiongxiong waiting patiently by the train station and does not respond to strangers when they pet and call him.

'He never eats anything given to him by strangers,' the neighbour said. 

However, the pooch's response to his owner is a stark contrast.
