Dog Stays Outside Hospital for 6 Days As Its Owner Recovered From Appendix Surgery
The dog became a local celebrity while she waited for her owner.
This loveable pooch has proven why her species is known as "man’s best friend."
The dog named Maya waited for six days outside a hospital in Alicante, Spain, as her owner, Sandra Inesta, recovered from emergency appendix surgery.
During the ordeal, Maya’s father, Andreas Inesta, tried to bring the Japanese Akita Inu home but she would not leave the hospital.
The hospital posted about the dog on Facebook to showcase the dedication that Maya had for her owner. She became a local celebrity after the post.
Andres told the local Alicante newspaper: "I think she knows what is happening and she is showing that she can be patient. She’s a fully paid-up member of the family."
Sandra and her family were traveling home to Barcelona after a vacation when she had to go to the emergency room for severe pain on August 27.
After spending nearly a week in the hospital, she told the paper: “Whenever I go inside some place or another, she waits for me at the door.”
