We all know how much loyal our pets are towards us. A dog is a man’s best friend—the saying goes far and beyond as, over the time, we have come across with so many instances that proved why pooches are the best companion we could ever ask for.

Now, a video is going viral, showing a dog who patiently waits for her owner outside Turkish hospital for days, before she could finally reunite with him with joy. As the video will bring happy tears in your eyes, here are we bring you other times when pooches’ loyalty and kindness touched netizens’ heart.

Pet Boncuk Waits Outside Hospital

The devoted dog, named Boncuk (Bon-DJUK) reportedly followed the ambulance that transported her owner, Ceman Senturk to hospital in the Black Sea city of Trabzon. He was taken to the hospital on January 14, and his loyal dog would make daily visits to the facility. Senturk’s daughter, Aynur Egeli, reported that she would take Boncuk home, but the dog would repeatedly run off and return to the hospital. This week, the loyal dog was finally reunited with her owner when he was pushed outside in a wheelchair for a brief meeting with his dog. Senturk was discharged from the hospital, on January 20 and returned home with his best friend, Boncuk. Loyal Dog Madison Who Survived California Fire Found Guarding Owners’ Burnt Home for a Month.
