In English, I would think the dog's title might be, "the dog which licks tears" or "the dog which chooses the woman". Further, I do not understand the significance of the dog choosing the woman to protect her....what's in it for the dog? Dogs are, by their very nature, practical beings.

The dog of tears
The dog of tears is a dog that joins the small group of blind when they leave the quarantine. While he mostly loyal to the doctor's wife, he helps the whole group by protecting them all from packs of dogs who are becoming more feral by the day. He is called the dog of tears because he becomes attached to the group when he licks the tears off the face of the doctor's wife.
