In a heartbreaking story of devotion, a loyal dog stayed outside the hospital door for two months patiently waiting for his beloved owner to return.
Since November, the faithful dog remained at the door of a hospital in Antequera, Spain. Sadly, the dog’s owner had died soon after being admitted to hospital.
For two months, the 8-month-old female dog, who looks like an Australian Cattle Dog mix, survived on scraps fed to her by hospital visitors and staff. She was finally rescued and taken in by an animal rescue center who found her a foster home.
“She spent days and days waiting at the door of the hospital not realizing that her master would never emerge to take her home,” a spokeswoman from animal rescue charity Patitas Andaluzas said. “Thanks to social media, her story has been spread and she has found a foster home in Madrid and is now looking for a permanent home.”
Now, the dog has been named Hachiko, named after the famous Akita Inu who waited years at a Shibuya station for his owner.
