Dog’s loyal act to injured owner


A Turkish woman and her golden retriever have demonstrated the unshakeable bond between human and dog in one heartbreaking video.

The animal was spotted chasing after an ambulance that rode away with its owner on Buyukada island, the largest of the Princes’ Islands of Istanbul, Reuters reported Wednesday.

The unidentified sick woman was reportedly treated in her home while her loyal pup monitored the situation at her side. Eventually, first responders made the call to bring her to a clinic for closer observation.

Her dog continued its guardianship as they loaded the patient into the back of the ambulance. Despite its anguished plea – and those big, puppy eyes – medics could not allow the animal to ride inside due to health policies and hygienic safety.

They shut the doors, likely assuming the dog would wait there for its caretaker’s return.

But the determined pooch would see to it that its friend was OK, running after the vehicle as they made their away through town to the hospital.

There, again, the faithful furry friend continued its vigil at the medical centre until reportedly reuniting with the woman.

It’s certainly not the first time a dog has made the agonising trip to the hospital for their human mates. Boncuk, also from Turkey, was seen pacing outside hospital doors earlier this year while its owner was being treated for a brain condition.

In the US, a New Jersey labrador mix named Moose was found grieving by his late owner’s hospital bedside. (Don’t worry – Moose was soon adopted!)

Two years prior, in Argentina, Tony was there when his owner fell from a tree, which knocked the man unconscious. But the dog’s warm hug teased the injured man awake – and there they waited, embracing until paramedics arrived at the scene.
