There are a lot of stories around the internet that talk about dogs waiting for their owners. Dogs are patient enough to wait for days on end just to be reunited with their humans. That speaks volumes about a dog’s loyalty, and truth be told, that is what we expect from them. It is part of who they are, and we love them for it.
In a hospital in Brazil, there were two dogs that displayed their undying loyalty, and their story became viral. These two amazing pups are Princess and Scooby. The dogs were first noticed when a man was transferred to Agudo Hospital from another medical facility for further treatments.
Nobody knew who they were until some of the hospital staff connected the dots, and confirmed with the patient if the dogs were his. It turned out that Princess was his dog, and Scooby was Princess’ playmate from their neighborhood. They have been waiting outside for two weeks.
Unfortunately, just like most hospitals, pets are not allowed inside. One of the nurses asked her veterinarian friend to help them take care of the dogs as they have been out there for quite a while now. Dr. Maria Alice Altermann showed up to the scene and attended to the two pups.
Just like most hospitals, pets were not allowed in Agudo Hospital. However, they were willing to bend the rules as they thought that keeping them out wouldn’t really help anyone, and letting them in would probably boost the morale of the patient. First, they went to the groomers to be bathed and cleaned.
Afterwards, they were put in dog carriers, and they were brought inside the hospital, straight to their human’s room. There, they were released, and they were able to cuddle with the man who was elated to be with the dogs. They were allowed to stay in the room for a few days and only went home when the patient was discharged. Sometimes, pharmaceuticals aren’t really the only cure for illnesses.
