This stray dog is a fierce crossing guard for little children, barks at drivers to protect kids

Here’s a Georgian city dog that saved pedestrians.  Dogs are considered our most loyal companions, a quality that earned them the well-deserved title of man’s best friend.

These unique creatures are our stress relievers. We laugh at their silly antics, but they are also ready to defend us when they need to. Dogs are the only animal that can love humans as deeply as a dog.


This canine in Georgia is just like your regular dog, except that he plays a unique role in his community – the crossing guard.

Kupata, a stray dog from the neighborhood, has been appointed as a personal guide for pedestrians on this busy street in Batumi.

Kupata was caught by Beqa Tsinadze one morning. A group of kindergartners can be seen, accompanied with two adults, standing in a marked crosswalk.

They waited for cars that would yield so they could safely cross the road, but none of them were kind enough.

They waited and watched as their chaperone waited. However, it seemed that no motorist was paying any attention to them.

Kupata the dog wasn’t one to wait. Kupata the dog was not one to wait. He was quick to get involved and barked at all vehicles in front of him. It was almost as if he was scolding them about their road manners.

The dog was a pro at handling the situation. The dog began to bark at the cars but eventually stopped and turned his attention to the group walking by.

Kupata didn’t stop there; once they were all crossing, he positioned himself in front of the line and led them to the other side of the road. What a thoughtful puppy!

As it turns out, this wasn’t a one-time incident. Beqa shared another clip of Kupata stopping traffic, and escorting another group of kindergartners down the street.

Kupata chased after the kids as they tried to cross the street.

He circled back and placed himself in front of the children to make sure they made it safely to the other side.

Kupata barked back at an impatient driver in a white van as he passed the children crossing.

It’s unclear how the pup came to be this community’s crossing guard and a hero to many pedestrians; it was probably his way of showing gratitude to its people.

Kupata arrived as a stray in Georgia a few years back. Members of the community took it upon themselves to take care of him, according Georgian media.

The report says that the dog goes by several names among the folks in the neighborhood, but it goes without saying that calling him a “good boy” is just perfect!
