A group of school children were aided across the road by a protective dog in a humorously heartwarming video.
Kupata, the four-year-old dog, has become something of a local celebrity in his neighbourhood in Batumi, Gerogia.
The helpful dog has earned quite the positive reputation by helping large groups of school children safely cross the road.
Filmed by local resident Beqa Tsinadze, 29, Kupata was spotted leading the pack of children and even stopped to bark at the waiting traffic.
Beqa said: “Kupata walks and guards the children on road crossings. Kupata loves children, they are his favourite and he never misses a chance to walk across the road with them.
“Kupata he is very lovely and smart dog.”
