A heartwarming video showing a stray dog checking on a street actor pretending to be injured has gone viral on social media.
The dog interrupts the actor's live performance as he is seen lying on the ground. Thinking the man is hurt for real, the dog walks across the concrete floor and rubs his face against the man before he is patted and stopped by other actors of the group.
According to reports, the adorable moment was filmed during a theatrical performance in Turkey earlier in September, where actor Numan Ertuğrul Uzunsoy played a character who had been injured.

While the audience knew Numan was just playing his part, the canine thought he was actually in pain.
The dog is seen wagging its tail as it walked between the other actors to reach Numan.
“I felt warmth on my face. First, I thought my co-star was approaching me. I was very happy when I felt the dog’s kisses. I was very touched. He was like an angel who wanted to help me. It was a very emotional moment for me. I was not expecting it,” said Numan.
Following the adorable moment, Numan and his co-actors stoked the dog and escorted it offstage, where it remained for a short while.
Numan went to the same place the next day to look for the canine. But he was unable to find him.
“The next day I went to the same place, looking for him. People told me he usually hangs out there. I went again today. I’ll look for him until I find him. I’ve always loved animals,” said Numan.
