A Dog Waited by the Hospital for Six Days to See Her Human Again

Dogs are known for being stubbornly tenacious when it comes to devotion, and one dog called Boncuk demonstrated that recently in Trabzon, Turkey. When Boncuk’s owner, Cemal Şentürk, went in for treatment, his loyal Boncuk trailed the ambulance that was carrying him and found itself next to the Medical Park Hospital. The determined canine then waited out her human for six days until they were reunited.

The Dog Was Taken Home Each Night But Always Managed to Sneak Out and Go to the Hospital the Next Day

Dog Boncuk in front of the hospital Şentürk’s daughter, Aynur Egeli, shared that Boncuk was sent home every day to be placed under house arrest, but it was of no use. The very next day, the resourceful canine would manage to sneak out and get back to the hospital again. Dog Boncuk managed to get to the hospital all by herself during the entire stay of her owner.

The Hospital Staff Kept Dog Boncuk Fed and Allowed Şentürk to See Her From His Room Window

The hospital’s security guard, Muhammet Akdeniz shared in an interview how the dog would come every day around nine and wait until the evening. Apparently, Boncuk never attempted to enter but waited patiently for her owner. Some of the hospital staff even fed the dog and made sure Şentürk could see her through the window. He was encouraged by her visits, called her from the window, and waved at her.
