Canines are often coined as ‘man’s best friend’, and one story right here has proven that to be absolutely true. One faithful dog’s undying love for its owner has led it all the way to the hospital – by following the ambulance he had been transported in.
A video has been taken, courtesy of a paramedic, along the streets of Goiana, Brazil. Although the dog and its owner were both homeless, help was able to arrive just in time for his owner to seek medical help – but the dog refused to leave his side. Instead, it ran down the streets, for more than a few minutes and eventually, slowing down due to fatigue.
The constant sprinting proved to be too much for the dog, and it became very distressed once the distance between him and the ambulance increased. Kind-hearted paramedics decided to let the dog on board, and accompany its owner for the rest of the ride. Once the ambulance arrived at the hospital, as the dog’s owner recovers from epileptic seizure on a stretcher, his dog sat near him until he was well enough to leave.
42-year-old paramedic Celiomar Ferreira do Couto was also the one responsible for filming the dog. He even remarked that the dog’s loyalty has touched the whole crew’s hearts.
“Sometimes we arrive at the scene of an emergency, and there are pets around, but they are too shy for us to get close to – and they often run way. I have never seen this reaction in all my career.”
