Panic-stricken mother dog sees her puppy run over

Heartbreaking footage shows how a frantic mother dog was barking at passing cars to try and help her puppy after he was knocked over.

The mobile phone video shows the poor pouch running up and down the road trying to get attention from passers-by and motorists, following the tragic accident.

At one point the brave mother puts herself directly in front of a taxi as it moves towards her in the busy road, but the driver refuses to stop.

Despite her brave actions no one intervenes.
