When he was found dead in the woods, they began to say that Kostya landed under the wheels of a large "KAMAZ", and the driver, fearing popular anger thus "hide the evidence."

This was unfortunate news for all citizens, the dog loved it and for some time was able to become a living legend of the city. For lack of funds and the initiative himself, in memory of the PSE residents placed by the roadside memorial board with the inscription: "Dog, teach us love and devotion."
On these days, he became a symbol of Togliatti and imitated his loving loyalty to the owners. This shield is constantly blown away by the wind and it is often broken by vandals.

Sculpture height of half a meter installed on a granite pedestal so that the passing of the Southern Highway is an impression that the dog turns his head after a passing car.
