Hachiko was good movie, i watched for the first time and i liked also because i love dogs. It is touching how can be faithful and loyal a dog, it can ask only food from you but what gives to you in exchange is way a lot. At the end is shown that the movie is based on real story happened in Japan, and there is the statue of this faithful dog in Shibuya station in Tokyo.
It is amazing how a dog can do for the owner, maybe not all the dogs are like this but they have high sense of friendship and devotion that humans doesn't have.
Happy that Hachiko didn't been hit because i have seen owners that hit their dogs and always forgive their owners instead to be upset.
Hachiko gave so much to his owner Parker (R.Gere) waiting for him outside the station for years, the Japanese dog did it for 9 years, that's for show dogs are really the best friend and not the humans race.
