The people took the bundle out of the river, and rescued the trader who was still alive. Now, the trader wanted to go back to Wuhu but the dog was missing. The trader was very unhappy. He searched for the dog but could not find him. After a few days, when he was on the point of returning home, the dog suddenly reappeared. He barked and invited the trader to follow him in a particular direction.
The trader followed him, until the dog jumped on a boat and grabbed one of the boatmen by the leg. He was the same boatman who had robbed and tried to murder him. He had changed his clothes and also his boat so that none might recognise him. Finally, he was arrested and the whole of the money was found in his boat. Many people in this world would be ashamed after seeing such a grateful dog.
