The children in Batumi, Georgia, have nothing to fear when it comes to safely crossing the street. They have a four legged friend named Kupata to keep them safe!
Kupata rose to internet stardom after he was recorded stopping traffic so a group of small children in could safely cross the street.
He showed up into town a few years ago as a stray and since then, he’s taken it upon himself to safely escort tiny humans across the street. Kupata even barks at impatient drivers to remind them to keep their distance!
And according to locals, Kupata shows up for work every day.
“He takes his job very seriously. And sometimes he waits for children for one hour to make sure that they feel safe in the park and they cross the street safely.” according to a local.
Kupata’s young friends are always grateful and always reward him with hugs and pets.
The person who maintains Kupata’s Instagram says, “He came here 5 years ago from somewhere when he was a puppy, and since then he’s been living in the staircase of one of the apartments and people have been caring for him. Everybody loves Kupata.”
“He has three best friends: the woman named Nona, who feeds him, also one little girl, and Beka, who cares for him as well. Kupata grew up with kids, he loves playing with them. There is a park next to his place, so he is always playing with kids in that park.”
Kupata’s adoring fans even mounted a mural in his honor.
