We have all heard about how faithful dogs can be. There are tons of videos and stories online that prove how loyal they are to their owners. One of them is a golden retriever that lives in Istanbul, Turkey.
One day, the lab and his owner were taking a walk when the woman suddenly fell ill and became disoriented. She felt very weak and fell on her knees. At some point, she even passed out. The dog became very concerned and started barking, catching the attention of everyone around.
One passer-by got concerned and called for an ambulance right away. The people tried to keep their lady awake while waiting for responders to arrive. Once the ambulance got to their location, they quickly placed the sick woman on a stretcher and wheeled her in on the emergency response vehicle.
In a video that was being taken by one of the responders, the dog was seen trying to follow her owner inside the ambulance. But he was quickly blocked off by another human. As the ambulance raced away, the dog did not hesitate to run behind them. The responder taking the video filmed the loyal pooch running after them.
When the speeding emergency vehicle arrived at the hospital a short while later, the dog was already waiting by the vehicle’s door. He even followed the stretcher as his owner was being taken into the emergency area. Unfortunately for him, though, dogs are not allowed inside.
Un wavered, the dog sat outside. According to the Turkish Health Ministry, the pooch sat outside the door and waited until his owner was finally released. When the video of the dog was released, it instantly became viral. A lot of people were inspired by his loyalty and even said that he was probably a top contender for the most faithful dog in the world.
