Boncuk, a devoted pet dog, spent days obediently waiting outside the hospital where her owner was receiving treatment.
The loyal pup had followed Cemal Senturk to a hospital in the Black Sea city of Trabzon on January 14 after he fell ill.
According to DHA, a Turkish news agency, Boncuk continued to wait outside the hospital’s entrance for Mr Senturk to return.
Aynur Egeli, Mr Senturk’s daughter, said she would take Boncuk home each day but she kept on returning to the hospital.
Luckily for Boncuk, which means bead in Turkish, her owner recovered from his ailment and was reunited with her outside the hospital as he left in a wheelchair.
