The photo was taken in Tokyo by the famous Hachiko statue. Hachiko is the akita dog that became famous for his devotion towards his owner. When his owner who died suddenly, he kept going at the train station waiting for him return from his workday as he did everyday. A statue was made in his honour in 1934.
The girl so the dog striking a pse in front of the statue as she was coming out of a shopping mall. In this photo you can see the owners dog as well taking the picture.
The story of the posing dog was too adorable and therefore she decided to share it with her Twitter followers. No wonder people fell in love with the pup as soon as the photo was posted, making it go viral.
