A homeless man called Adolfo was brought to San Juan de Dios Hospital in Colombia earlier this week after contracting pneumonia.
It was then that Adolfo was shown to be rich in ways that mattered more, despite his lack of material possessions.
He enjoys the devotion of a loyal dog named Moisés, who has never left his side.
While Adolfo was being hospitalized inside the hospital, Moisés stood outside, waiting for his closest friend to return.
Animal lover Sammy Quiceno was struck by the dog’s persistent commitment and was moved by the dog’s passionate vigil.
“On cold evenings, he was waiting for his owner at the emergency department for more than two days without moving,” Quiceno wrote.
“The dog had a bag full of the man’s clothing in his mouth and wouldn’t let go.” What these creatures do for us is incredible.”
Quiceno decided to take Moisés home with him until Adolfo could be released.
When they arrived at Quiceno’s residence, Moisés remained near Adolfo’s clothing at all times, apparently wanting to be near him again. Moisés, on the other hand, wouldn’t have to wait long. There is a “no pets” rule.
They welcomed Moisés into their homes, allowing him to reunite with Adolfo.
Everyone could see how happy they were.
Quiceno writes, “Adolfo could visit his furry companion with whom he had not been separated for 5 years.” “This makes me very happy!!!” “Their love is one-of-a-kind.”
“Right now, both Don Adolfo and Moises are being cared for in the greatest way,” a hospital representative told The Dodo, despite the fact that Adolfo still needs some time to recover.
And Moisés won’t have to wait alone till the day arrives when they can be reunited for good:
Though Adolfo still needs some more time to recover, a hospital spokesperson told The Dodo: “Right now, both Don Adolfo and Moises are being cared for in the best way.”
And until the day comes that they can be reunited for good, Moisés won’t have to wait alone:
“Let’s hope Adolfo has a speedy recovery so they can be together much longer!” Quiceno wrote. “For the moment, we will continue to care for Moisés in my house.”
