For six years, Capitan has been watching guard over his master, Miguel Guzman. Unfortunately, Mr. Guzman passed away back in 2006. The German Shepard had reportedly run away after his master died but was found one week later sitting by his grave in Argentina. The family says Miguel adopted Capitan in 2005 for his son, Damien.
