People Saw This Dog Using Public Transport In Istanbul, So Authorities Put A Tracker On Him – Turns Out He Travels Over 30 Kilometers A Day

Every day a lot of people come in contact with dogs in public transport. Owners are usually around to look after the said dogs, or in case of disability, you can spot the specifically marked guide dogs who help their owners to go out and about their day safely without disrupting the passengers.

But have you ever thought about the fact that some dogs might like to travel on their own? One such case appears in Istanbul, Turkey where a stray dog named Boji uses public transport to travel around the city every day. Boji is an incredibly smart dog that has gained the locals’ attention recently due to the fact that he can independently use public transport such as the metro, tram line, and even railway.

The dog was recently spotted amongst the locals who started taking pictures of the said dog as he was riding the metro, trains, and even the ferry.

The dog is smart to the point that he knows all of the rules of public transport and gives way to the disembarking passengers, waiting for them and entering the train after it’s fully emptied.
