One such dog waited eight days outside the hospital before being reunited with his owner.
According to Huffington Post, Lauri da Costa, a homeless man in Brazil entered the hospital after being hit in the face. Doctors discovered Costa had melanoma and required surgery.
While Costa was treated inside the hospital, his dog waited outside. Hospital staff reported provided food and water for the dog.
When Costa was finally allowed to have visitors, hospital staff wheeled him to the facility’s courtyard where his faithful pup nearly lost his tail from wagging it so much.
