A dog has been waiting for his owner outside the hospital where he died

Stop.

If there's one thing worse than a sad dog, it's a sad dog waiting outside the hospital for his owner who died four months ago.

Yeah, we know, pretty bleak.

The dog in question is from Novo Horizonte, Brazil, and his 59-year-old owner passed away after he was stabbed in a street fight four months ago.

However, the dog, still expecting his owner to return, has shown up to the hospital most days since that fight.

Local news source Globo reports that staff offer the dog food and water, and even tried to find him a new owner, but he escaped and came straight back to the hospital.

Honestly, so tragic.


Some photos of the dog were shared on Facebook by lawyer Cristine Sardella, who wrote: "We have a lot to learn from animals."

"This dog stays every day at the door of the Santa Casa de Novo Horizonte waiting for its owner who unfortunately passed away.

"I hear it’s powered by some people. Waiting for him is in vain, but the love he nurtured for the owner is eternal. I also observe the respect that the officials of the holy house have for him.

"And so follow life, animals teaching men true love."

Heartbreaking.
