Ma’nao and his dog, Big Yellow, have gained popularity in their home town of Magou village, China. Ma is the local shoe shiner, and has been living alone with his dogs for the past 40 years. He is also widower with no children, but his loyal dogs have kept him company all these years. Big Yellow, named by the locals, was born to another of Ma’s dogs two years ago. She has been by his side since.

Ma suffered from Polio at the young age of six, and lost the use of his legs. Not making much money, Ma constructed a makeshift wheelchair for himself. Though the wheelchair helps, it is hard for Ma to maneuver on his own. That’s where his amazing best friend comes in. Big Yellow has taught herself to help push her dad to and from work every day.

This dog stays by her dad’s side no matter what. Ma is unable to feed himself somedays, and food for Big Yellow is also hard to come by. While Ma eats a meager lunch, Big Yellow visits local restaurants who know the dog well. There, she receives leftover meat scraps and other food from the kind locals. After making her rounds, though, she always returns  to her dad’s side to help run his stall and keep him company.

After this amazing story went viral in China, the Chinese government stepped in and provided Ma with the subsidized income he should have been receiving for the past 20 years. They also provided the man with a real wheelchair. Ma, however, finds it hard to get in and out of these new wheelchairs, and will probably continue his commute to work in the same manner he has been; with his dog by his side, helping him out. Thanks to the income, though, Ma and Big Yellow will no longer go hungry. They’ll be able to share lunch together each day in the shoe shining stall from here on out.

Big Yellow taught herself to help push her dad’s wheelchair to and from his job each day.

I was thinking the Chinese have no idea about animals - but this story must be an exception!

So nice to see a canine story from China that isn't horrendous. Pity the public don't follow this man's lead. Jodie Fennell

Let's hope no one eats him... you would think stories like this would put an end to the dog meat trade in China but they don't . He's a lucky man to have such a wonderful companion.

Those who eat them might take a second thought and stop this horrible slaughter.

So beautiful to see. Dogs are amazing, pity they eat them over there, not to mention the disgusting Yulin festival.

Hope nobody eats this dog. Funny how animals are more compassionate than people.
