A dog has just proven that he is really a man’s best friend. He was caught on camera chasing an ambulance that was taking his sick owner to the hospital.

In the heartwarming footage taken by a paramedic, who was inside the ambulance, the faithful dog was following the emergency vehicle for a couple of minutes.

After suffering a seizure, the dog’s homeless owner was rushed to the hospital. And, by that time, the dog was reluctant to leave his side and decided to follow the ambulance wherever it goes.

There was a time when the dog started to fall behind because it ran out of breath. However, he was looking up desperately at the crew and did his best to keep his distance to the ambulance.

Eventually, the 42-year-old ambulance crew named Celiomar Ferreira do Couto realized that it was going to be a long journey. He got pity and decided to let the poor little pooch hop on board.

Celiomar said, “I’ve been doing this job for 19 years and I’ve never seen anything like it. Sometimes we arrive at the scene of an emergency and there are pets around but they are too shy for us to get close to and they often run away. I have never seen this reaction in all my career”.

While his owner was treated, the affectionate dog sat next to his owner. But, the hospital didn’t say anything about the condition of the man, whether he recovered or not.

“Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find out what happened to the pet and its owner, but it has certainly given me faith in the loyalty and love that exists between owners and their dogs,” Couto said.
