Dog Chases An Ambulance Carrying His Stabbed Owner Who Later Dies, Waits For 4 Months At The Entrance

In Novo Horizonte, Brazil, a 59-year-old homeless man was brought to the hospital after being stabbed in the streets. His faithful dog chased the ambulance all the way to the hospital and patiently waited for his owner to show up. Unfortunately, his owner was seriously injured and didn’t survive.

According to the director of the hospital, the poor dog didn’t try to enter the hospital, he just kept waiting at the entrance. This sad situation was captured by the lawyer Cristine Sardella who was deeply moved by the bond between this dog and his owner. In the interview with a local newspaper, she said that the animal is laying on a rug just in front of the reception.

It is said that the dog was waiting for 4 months for his owner to return before the staff found him a new home. However, the heartbroken animal made his way back to the hospital even when it was around 3 miles away from his new place.

They could have let him see his dead human, so he would have known that there was no use waiting for him. Then he could have accepted to be adopted.. it's so sad..

Unlikely. Homeless people are usually buried in unmarked ditches on public cemeteries. No funeral services. Sorry. :(

Dogs are incredible. Probably the most moving examples of a dog waiting for his master after he died, is the Japanese dog Hachiko. Hachiko waited at the train station in Tokyo, where he used to go and wait for his master to return from work as a professor at a university in Tokyo. His master died of a cerebral hemorrhage, and Hachicko patiently waited on him for 9 years 9 months and 15 days. There is a statue that was erected in 1935 on the very spot Hachicko would sit and wait. It is still there today and my wife and I got to see it on our trip to Japan in August of last year. There was also a Hollywood movie called Hachi, A Dog's Tale, starring William Gere. The movie will make all of you cry. Here is the picture of the statue. It is the most popular meeting place for folks in Tokyo. A hell of a story and it is true. 20170814_0...460658.jpg 20170814_034857-5aa2433460658.jpg

I am sorry. The movie starred Richard Gere, and not William Gere, and the statue was erected in April 1934, and Hachiko was actually at the ceremony to unveil the statue. He died March 8, 1935. Sorry for the misinformation but it is very early here.
