A local on his way home noticed a heart-warming sight. When Anderson Bahi saw an ambulance on the road, he noticed an extra passenger on the back, a dog.

The owner had fallen ill while out for a walk with the dog and the dog waited patiently at the scene while the owner was treated. Talk about a loyal pup!


“I was passing in my car when I saw an ambulance stopped on the other side of the road,” Anderson told The Dodo. Anderson shared several photos and videos of the incident on his Facebook. “The love this dog has for her owner is something very special,” Bahi told the outlet, “A faithful love.”

A local dog rescuer, Maria Lúcia Muniz, was ready to be called if the dog needed assistance, but the dog was fine while waiting for their owner outside the hospital. Muniz went to the hospital to check and shared, “It was very emotional,” Muniz said. “But thank God, the owner was only hospitalized for 45 minutes. His family arrived to take him and his dog home.”
