The loyalty dogs have for their owners is something that makes these animals such a special pet. My heart breaks when an animal loses its owner because there is no way to make them understand the reason why.
Our inseparable four-legged friends are always there for us; waiting for us at home or outside a hospital if necessary.
In the case of these four dogs, they were captured on camera waiting at the door of a hospital while their owner was inside being treated. The photo was shared online and immediately went viral.
This faithful furry family knew where their owner was and just waited patiently outside; a healthcare worker spotted them and couldn’t resist capturing the tender scene.
Cris Mamprim is a healthcare worker at the Hospital Regional Alto Vale in Brazil. On a recent night shift a homeless man came in needing treatment; accompanying him was his four dogs, according to This is Insider.
The man was admitted to the hospital at 3 a.m for a preexisting condition and while he was being treated his faithful friends waited patiently at the door.
Com tanta gente mal por aí, hoje me deparei com essa cena. No hospital em que trabalho, as 3h da madrugada, enquanto…
Cris took a picture of the tender scene and posted it on her Facebook page:
“Today I came across this scene. At the hospital where I work, at 3 in the morning, while his owner (who lives on the street) was being treated, his colleagues waited at the door,” she wrote.
“A simple person, without luxuries, who depends on help to overcome hunger, cold, pains, the evils of the world, but has the best companions at his side, and the exchange is reciprocal. Exchange of love, affection, warmth, understanding. A person who confessed to us that he stops eating to feed them.”
Since Cris posted the adorable scene, her post has had reactions from more than 120,000 people. It’s a beautiful image of what happens when you love a dog.
“I don’t know what his life is like, because he’s on the street, and I don’t even want to know and judge him, but I admire the respect and love he has for them. Seeing them like this, waiting at the door, just shows how much they are well cared for and loved. Oh if everyone was like this…. if there was no evil, mistreatment,” she added.
According to The Dodo, the dogs were invited in to wait for their owner who they also offered food to.
“Believe me, he ate some and saved a bit to give the dogs later,” Cris said.
This sweet story only confirms the unconditional love our dogs give us. Please share with all the dog lovers you know and help make their day.
