Time and again we come across stories about dogs that will just sweep us away. We have so much to learn from these incredible animals. This is yet another story that will leave you looking for tissues.
A homeless man was recently admitted to the hospital for illness and interestingly, he wasn’t alone despite being homeless. The staff were surprised to see four stray dogs that followed the man to hospital waiting for their friend.
The incident occurred at Hospital Regional Alto Vale in Santa Catarina, Brazil. Cesar, who is homeless had genuine friends in the form these dogs who stayed by his side. The dogs were obviously worried about Cesar and patiently waited for him.
Cris Mamprim, who works at the hospital decided to share this amazing story with the world and wrote on Facebook:
“A simple person, without luxury, who depends on help to overcome the hunger, the cold, the pain, the evils of the world, has by his side the best companions, and the exchange is mutual.”
Mamprim also commented on how the stray dogs were “all well taken care of and chubby. Seeing them like that, waiting at the door, only shows how much they are cared for and loved.”
It was a sight to watch when they were finally allowed to see Cesar. He said that he makes sure that the dogs are well fed. There were instances where he had stayed hungry and helped his friends to stay full.
Even the staff allowed the dogs to wait inside the hospital as Cesar was being treated. The dogs were also offered food and Mamprim noted that the man saved some of it to give to his companions later. Cesar and his friends then left the hospital and hopefully they share the same bonding.
“He has the best companions with him,” Mamprim wrote. “I do not know what his life is like, or why he’s on the street, but I admire the respect and love he has for his little animals.”
