Although the owner died of his injuries, the animal still refused to leave a hospital in Brazil.
Cristine Sardella shared photos on Facebook of a dog who refused to leave the door of Santa Casa de Novo Horizonte Hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil, to wait for its owner, News.com.au reported today . The story of the faithful animal immediately aroused a lot of interest.
The dog’s owner, a homeless man, was taken to hospital after being stabbed in a street fight more than four months ago. The dog followed the ambulance to the hospital and patiently waited for the owner to return. Although the person could not survive due to serious injuries, the animal continued to hang around outside.
Sardella believes humans still have a lot to learn from animals. “The wait is in vain, but her love for the owner is everlasting,” she commented.
Sardella first saw the dog when she went to the hospital for an appointment. “He got up politely to let people pass, then lay down again,” she said. A rescue organization once came looking for the animal, but it escaped and then traveled three kilometers back to the hospital.
A staff member is waiting to adopt the dog when it’s ready, according to Osvaldo Sobrinho, the hospital director. During this time, they arrange for a vet to come and vaccinate the animal and make sure the animal remains healthy.
