Loyal Dog Waits at Hospital Lobby for Three Months after His Owner Dies of COVID-19

A coronavirus victim's dog patiently waited for his elderly owner at the hospital where they arrived in February, not knowing the patient had already passed away.

Dog's are certainly man's best friend and are more dedicated to humans than, perhaps, humans themselves.

DOG WAITS FOR HIS OWNER'S RETURN

In a hospital in Wuhan, where the coronavirus takes its origins, a loyal dog patiently waited for his owner every day for three months.

Sadly, the man had passed away due to complications of the virus only five days after being admitted to Wuhan Taikang Hospital in Central China's Hubei Province.

With his presence in the hospital lobby, the medical staff has grown concerned as they sympathized with the poor dog who had arrived with his owner in February.

Dog's have played an essential part in several people's mental health amid the pandemic, including frontline health workers in Denver, Colorado.

UNDER SOMEONE'S CARE

The seven-year-old canine still searches and waits for his owner's return despite being sent away by a supermarket owner, Wu Cuifen, in the building.

"I first noticed the little dog when I returned to work in the middle of April. I called him 'Xiao Bao,'" Wu Cuifen said. "They told me Xiao Bao's owner, a pensioner, was admitted with the coronavirus." 

However, Xiao Bao wasn't aware of his owner's passing. "It never left the hospital," she added. "I grew familiar with the dog and later brought him into the shop."

According to the store owner, Xiao Bao remained dedicated to the pensioner and found his way back to the hospital even after being dropped off far away.

"Although Xiaobao can't speak, we understand that he is definitely still looking for his owner," Wu Cuifen continued.

XIAO BAO GETS SENT AWAY

Eventually, patients who didn't like having a dog roaming around filed complaints and reached the hospital's superiors.

Members of the Wuhan Small Animal Protection Association took the loyal dog after being called by medical staff and treated him for being fostered.

Wynn, a service dog in training, gave warm cuddles and lots of happiness to medical staff who needed a mental break from the chaotic emergency room at Rose Medical Center.

The one-year-old Labrador pup has helped members of the Hospital in several ways and continues to do so amid the pandemic.
