Six loyal dogs accompanied the ambulance carrying their master, a homeless guy who had had an early stroke and had spent more than 24 hours receiving treatment at the Santa Casa Hospital in Cianorte, southern Brazil.
The incredible moment when the faithful dogs chase the ambulance for miles before arriving breathless at the hospital’s emergency entrance is captured on video. The dogs wouldn’t leave the hospital door when Luiz, who goes by his first name alone, became ill without warning.
According to rescuer Simone Ziliane, the dogs chased the ambulance that carried Luiz and growled in front of the hospital for hours. The man recovered the following day, but he left through a side exit. The dogs were waiting for him because he thought of them as his family. They waited for Luiz to come back and pick them up before leaving.
The animals desperately needed care, Simone stated to G1. They rushed through the streets after the ambulance and arrived just as Luiz was being transported to the hospital. They lost control as soon as they saw it and screamed continuously at the door.
They eventually dropped to the ground and stayed there. When we discovered that Luiz had been released from the hospital and that his pets were clueless about anything, one of our volunteers went to look for him and took him to the area where the dogs were still waiting for him. The dogs were overjoyed when Luiz arrived and started to howl and hop all around him.
