Dogs are always man’s best friend and loyal to their owner , a loyal dog at a Wuhan waited for three months at a hospital for his owner, unaware that he had died from coronavirus
The seven-year-old male mongrel and name given Xiao Bao arrived at Wuhan Taikang Hospital in Central China with his elderly owner
Sadly dog owner had died just five days, but Xiao Bao refused to leave according to hospital cleaner Zhu Youzhen.
Unaware that his owner would not be returning, Xiao Bao, waited in the lobby of Taikang Hospital for more than three months, during which time he was fed by staff
According to Dailymail , On 13th April, after Wuhan lifted its lockdown restrictions and the hospital supermarket reopened, he was cared for by shopkeeper Wu Cuifen.
Ms Wu said: ‘I first noticed the little dog when I returned to work in the middle of April. I called him ‘Xiao Bao’. That’s the name I gave him.
‘They told me Xiao Bao’s owner, a pensioner, was admitted with the coronavirus. Then he passed away, but Xiao Bao didn’t know and just stayed in the hospital looking for him.
‘It never left the hospital. It was incredibly touching, and so loyal.
‘I grew familiar with the dog and later brought him into the shop.
‘Every morning when I opened up, Xiao Bao would be there waiting for me. He saw me off at the end of each day.’
Ms Wu said Xiao Bao refused to leave. Even when they deliberately dropped him off somewhere far away, he would make his way back to Taikang Hospital and patiently wait for his owner to return.
On 20th May, as Taikang Hospital filled with regular patients, staff received complaints and concerns about Xiao Bao roaming the corridors.
Nurses contacted the Wuhan Small Animal Protection Association, whose members took Xiao Bao in.
He has been treated by vets and is now waiting to be adopted into his forever home.
