This Dog Chased An Ambulance, But For A Very Good Reason.
A man was walking with his dog in Goiana, Brazil, when he suffered an epileptic seizure and lost consciousness. Paramedics were called to the scene, but when they took the man away in the ambulance, his dog was left behind.
The emergency responders had no idea the dog belonged to the man they were helping, but once they spotted him chasing after the ambulance for several blocks, they realized the dog belonged to the patient. They stopped and opened the door to let the dog in and he climbed aboard and sat quietly next to his owner, who was slipping in and out of consciousness.
Paramedic Celiomar Ferreira do Couto said he and his crew were touched by the love and loyalty shown by the dog for his owner. Couto said, "I've been doing this job for 19 years and I've never seen anything like it. Sometimes we arrive at the scene of an emergency and there are pets around but they are too shy for us to get close to and they often run way. I have never seen this reaction in all my career."
The driver of the ambulance could see the dog chasing the vehicle for several blocks.
The poor dog was out of breath, but it did not stop him.
Once the ambulance stopped, the dog climbed aboard and sat quietly next to his owner.
The faithful dog stood next to his owner at the hospital.
The footage captured by the paramedics show how loyal this dog is to his owner.
The hospital was unable to disclose the outcome of the man's hospital stay or whether he recovered and was able to leave with his pet. We hope the two of them are doing well and wish them the best.
This is one of the sweetest demonstrations of loyalty I've ever seen. Makes me want to go hug my dog now.
