It’s not a comfortable subject to discuss, but as dog owners we need to be mindful of what will happen to our dogs in case of an emergency. For one particular owner, this fear became a reality.
Thankfully, there were good people out to help.
This patient was out strolling their adored pooch when they turned out to be sick and a rescue vehicle must be called. Not having any desire to isolate the couple or disregard the pooch stranded, the clinical group chose to take the little guy with them. While the patient was being dealt with, the puppy was positioned outside. The staff ensured he was very agreeable. They gave him nourishment, water and even made him a comfortable bed while he sat tight for his proprietor. The gave little guy had no goal of leaving his proprietor at the clinic and stood by persistently outside until they were brought together. “He appeared to be engaged by the passing emergency vehicle teams and medical clinic staff and even figured out how to sneak a chomp of our lunch,” paramedic Stephanie Angelou told the Evening Standard.

Not only were the paramedics amazing for making sure that this poor pup was taken care of, they treated his owner to the best of their ability and safely reunited the two.
This loyal little pup certainly deserves an extra treat or two for sticking by to make sure his human was safe and sound! Another story: Six loyal dogs waited outside hospital for 24 hours after their owner suffered a stroke and was taken inside.
The dogs were filmed arriving at the building panting after chasing the ambulance carrying their owner – a homeless man known only as Luiz – for several miles. They refused to leave the entrance to Accident and Emergency at Santa Casa Hospital in Cianorte, south Brazil, last Wednesday, after Luiz was suddenly taken ill.
Witnesses described hearing the dogs howling for hours. Luckily Luiz, who has been sleeping rough for more than 20 years, was discharged the following day and picked up by his brother.But he left through a different exit at the hospital and the dogs stayed put for a few more hours before Luiz was tipped off and came to collect them.
Simone Zilane, a volunteer with animal welfare group, the Amigos de Patas, filmed the dogs guarding the hospital door. She told Brazilian media G1: ‘The dogs were desperate.
They followed the ambulance, racing after it down the roads and arrived just as Luiz was being taken into the hospital.
