An astonishing new video published by Brazilian newspaper Correio Braziliense on Monday reportedly shows one loyal dog’s reaction to watching his owner get taken away in an ambulance — and it’s reminding people just how strong the bond between dog and man can be.
In the soon-to-be viral video, the dog seemingly runs after the ambulance all the way to the hospital, unwilling to leave his owner’s side for a moment.
The EMT workers in in Taguatinga, Brazil, were apparently so stunned by the scene that they video recorded the dog’s journey to the hospital. As soon as the ambulance arrived at the hospital and the doors were opened, the dog is seen jumping in.
The pooch then followed the stretcher all the way into the hospital and remained by his owner’s side as he lay on the stretcher.

The video was reportedly recorded in July but started going viral for the first time on Monday.
According to the report, emergency crews were dispatched to rescue a man who had seemingly suffered an epileptic episode. The man was accompanied by the dog at the time.
