Loyal dog jumps on ambulance to follow its master to the hospital after he fell ill while walking his pet in Brazil

“The love this dog has for her owner is something very special”

 While driving home the opposite night, Anderson Bahi witnessed something he won’t soon forget.



It was a scene of affection in its purest form.


“I was passing in my car once I saw an ambulance stopped on the opposite side of the road,” Bahi told The Dodo.


Turns out, a person had suddenly fallen ill on the sidewalk a brief time earlier while out together with his dog.



After first responders loaded the person into the ambulance to drive him to the hospital, his Canis Minor hopped onto the rear bumper, insisting that they take her, too.


Bahi could only watch from afar, but one thing was still crystal clear.


“The love this dog has for her owner are some things very special,” Bahi said. “A faithful love.”



Fortunately, that truth wasn’t lost on the ambulance crew. Before driving off, they opened the doors therefore the sweet pup could remain by her owner’s side.


But the dog’s show of devotion didn’t end there.


Once at the hospital, the dog's owner was wheeled inside. 



The pup, meanwhile, sat patiently outside the hospital’s door for him to return.


It didn't take long before local animal rescuer Maria Lúcia Muniz, who lives near the hospital, learned about the dog holding vigil at the hospital door. She offered to require her certain the night. 


But fortunately, the dog's wait wasn’t long — and her faithfulness paid off.



“It was very emotional,” Muniz told The Dodo. “But thank God, the owner was only hospitalized for 45 minutes. His family arrived to require him and his dog home.”
