(PIX11) — A heart-wrenching  showing a dog burying a dead puppy has gotten international attention.

The video,  which appears to have been recorded somewhere in Iraq and was published June 12 on YouTube, depicts a dog that comes across a dead puppy lying in the sand. The pooch use his snout to  push sand over the puppy and cover him completely in a three-minute burial.

Little else is known about the video, including whether there was any relation between the dog and the puppy.
