A loyal pup has set up home in a hospital’s A&E unit in northern China after his owner collapsed from a heart attack.
Loyal pal, Nao Nao, has been living in the emergency department of the First Clinical Hospital of Jilin University in Changchun ever since his owner was brought in a week ago.
Hospital administrator Wang Ts’ai said: “He came with his owner in the ambulance all the way here and we can’t get rid of him.”
He added: “He hangs around the automatic doors and when someone goes in or out, in he runs and goes straight to his owner’s bed.
"We don’t want to put him in the pound because we think he is good for his owner so we put up with him."
Medics say Nao Nao’s owner, Fen Hsueh 43, is recovering from the heart attack that put her in hospital but will have to remain there for at least another week.
Wang Ts’ai explained: “Some of the staff have started feeding him so now we’ll probably never get rid of him as long as his owner is here.
"But he’s a very loyal little dog and is certainly helping his owner."
Hopefully this loyal dog can go home with his owner soon. Click here for the full story.
