After the ambulance picked up the homeless man, her six dogs chased her and then waited 24 hours outside the hospital.
Six loyal dogs chased the ambulance carrying their owner, a homeless man who suffered an early stroke and after being hospitalized, spent more than 24 hours waiting for him outside Santa Casa de Cianorte Hospital, in southern Brazil.
In one video, you can see the extraordinary moment the faithful dogs arrive panting at the entrance to the hospital’s emergency room after chasing the ambulance for several miles.
The dogs refused to leave the hospital entrance, when the resident on the street, known only as Luiz, suddenly fell ill.
Six dogs chase an ambulance and wait 24 hours outside the hospital
Volunteers from the Amigos de Patas Cianorte association took photos of the dogs lying in the hospital entrance.
Volunteer Simone Ziliane says the dogs followed the ambulance that brought Luiz and stood howling for hours outside the hospital. The man was released the following day, but left through the other entrance with his brother.
The dogs, whom he considers his family, waited for him to appear. They didn’t leave until Luiz came back to pick them up.
Simone told G1:
The dogs were desperate. They followed the ambulance, running after it along the roads, arriving just as Luiz was admitted to hospital. They went crazy when they received him and howled nonstop at the entrance.
After a while they lay on the ground and refused to leave. When we realized Luiz had been discharged and his pets knew nothing, one of our volunteers picked him up from his brother’s house and took him to where the dogs were still waiting for him.
He hadn’t realized they had been out all this time, but he wasn’t that surprised.
The dogs were happy when Luiz appeared, howling and jumping around him.
Luiz and his dogs are inseparable
According to the organization, Luiz was diagnosed with psychiatric problems, but for years he refused to accept help from charities for the homeless man and his family. Apparently he prefers to live on the streets with his puppies.
Some time ago we rented him a very simple house with a large patio for the dogs, but he did not accept it and refused to enter the house. He said his house is the street. At this time the dogs were also taken to a kennel, set up by an NGO volunteer, but they escaped by jumping over the wall and chasing Luiz. Wherever you are, you can guarantee the dogs are never far away.
After fearing for his health, Luiz agreed to take a bath and a bowl of food while his dogs were bathed and fed.
According to the NGO, all the animals have been castrated, vaccinated and dewormed.
On weekends, Luiz was back on the streets with his pack of loyal dogs.
