After his homeless owner was hospitalized, a dog waited for eight days outside the hospital to see him again.

According to Huffington Post, Lauri da Costa is homeless and was taken to the hospital after he was hit in the face. Doctors discovered he had melanoma, and he had to have surgery.

While he was in the hospital, his dog waited for him outside in the parking lot, according to Huffington Post, and staff fed and watered him.

After eight days, Costa was finally able to have visitors, so the hospital took him outside to reunite with his dog.
