      From Wikipedia:

      Hachikō (ハチ公?, November 10, 1923–March 8, 1935), known in Japanese as chūken Hachikō (忠犬ハチ公?, “faithful dog Hachikō” (‘hachi’ meaning ‘eight’, a number referring to the dog’s birth order in the litter, and ‘kō,’ meaning prince or duke)). Hachikō was an Akita dog born on a farm near the city of Ōdate, Akita Prefecture,[1] remembered for his loyalty to his owner, even many years after his owner’s death.
